This photo of the new Gouter hut last week, shows that the construction is nearly finished. It is due to open in late August, but in the meantime the old Gouter hut will remain open. We have spaces reserved in the old / new Gouter each week of the summer season, to ensure that if it is possible to start from this high hut, the summit day is as short as possible. We also have some space in the lower Tete Rousse hut, in case we have slower moving groups, who could not get to the Gouter in case of afternoon storm risk. Read more about our Mont Blanc trips here.
