Transition from winter to summer. Refuge Ch. Kakkalos summer season kicks off

The exit from the past heavy winter was rather slow. There was still fine skiing on the valley and north couloirs until mid-May, as snow has accumulated more in lower elevations. As we are ready to kick off the summer season there is still snow in several locations that requires extra caution and proper equipment. As summer as reached the lower elevations springy conditions still prevail on the upper mountain with low night temperatures.
We are happy to announce the opening of the 2022 summer season on Friday May 27. The season will last until the end of October.
