Pantalons Blancs Refuge
Add to my favorites

The Pantalons Blancs Igloo refuge is a gift from the Sion Group for all mountaineers in search of tranquillity, new endeavours and original races. May they appreciate its true value in friendship, solidarity and respect for the environment. For availability and bookings visit the SAC (Swiss Alpine Club) huts website.
It takes 5 hours to reach the hut starting from the Grande Dixence dam. First follow the path along the lake to Barmaz. Then follow the ridge of the Bouc rock and walk along the Pantalons Blancs glacier. The refuge is located two or three hundred metres along the ridge.
To take this high mountain route, you must have sound mountaineering knowledge and be sure-footed. The Bouc rocks can be snowy or icy at times. In this case you will need crampons.
If the Ecoulaie glacier is accessible, you can follow it to reach the hut. It is possible to ski to Pantalons Blancs in stable snow. The last slope under the hut is very steep!!!! You can avoid the slope under the hut by going to the pass (point 3150) and following the ridge carrying your skis. The hut is equipped with wood, gas and blankets.
