A word from the hut keeper

Welcome to the Tête Rousse hut.

Located on the royal road of Mont Blanc, we suggest you stop off before crossing the large corridor and climbing the Aiguille du Goûter.

Our simple but quality cuisine will delight you: the snack bar is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and we offer pasta and omelettes. The evening meal is served at 6.30pm for everyone.

Please note the reservation is compulsory and valid until 5 p.m.

There are two breakfast hours: 4h and 7h.

The dormitories are equipped with duvets and pillows, you will only need a personal bag sheet.

There is also the possibility of sleeping in the large tents of the Base Camp; you need your own down provided for cold nights at altitude. Individual tents are not allowed. You can also eat at the refuge of course. Report to the refuge upon arrival.

Toilets are available in the refuge and outside, but there is no running water. There is no shower.

The hut is equipped with a crampon room with lockers where you can leave shoes and equipment; there are slippers in your size.

We accept all types of payment: cash, checks and CB but we recommend that you always have two payment solutions in case of technical problems.

See you soon !
