Construction of a snow shelter & NIGHT IN A REFUGE ABOVE LAKE ANNECY

We offer you a unique mountain experience in the middle of winter. Our adventure will take place in the massif des Bornes with the objective of the Parmelan refuge perched at 1800m. The itinerary will start in the middle of the forest above Aviernoz. After the Anglettaz mountain pasture we will continue our ascent via the summer path that we will have to guess in this white and uniform immensity. Luckily your mountain guide knows the area well and will guide you safely to the refuge. The view is gradually opening up on the Aravis mountain range, the Mont-Blanc and finally on Lake Annecy at the summit. It is Philippe, the janitor, who will welcome us at the refuge which is specially opened for us. In the afternoon, you will learn how to build a shelter in the snow. With the arrival of dusk, the mountains are getting colored, it's time to take beautiful pictures. Then it will be time to get into the kitchen to prepare the evening meal. After a good night's sleep in our comforters, we will take the way back via the cave of hell.
