We start the famous Grand St Bernard Hospice, a 10th century monastery founded by St Bernard to give shelter to traders passing over the col. Still run by monks, its hospitality is as warm as it ever was and it provides an excellent base from which to ski tour.
- Fine ski tours in a quiet and remote setting
- Magnificent views of the Grand Combin and Mont Blanc Massif
- Unique accommodation at historic Hospice Grand St Bernard
The Hospice has comfortable rooms (beds with sheets and showers) and is a unique place to stay, having a fascinating museum, chapel and treasury. In winter the hospice can only be approached using skis or snow shoes, giving it a remote ambience.The second part of the tour is based at the Cabane Brunet from which we make an ascent of the Mont Rogneux. Mont Rogneux is a classic ski peak in the northern part of the Grand Combin massif and is known for its views and great snow.
