Cabane du Vélan CAS 2642 m

Mont Vélan is considered a challenging ski mountaineering summit. The futuristic looking up-to-date SAC cabin offers a splendid view of the mighty Grand Combin. The wooden building with its lenticular layout forming a ship’s bow and with a metallic shell is located in a prominent position above the road to Grosser Sankt Bernhard Pass. The layout of the windows underlines the bold architecture. In summer, families appreciate the many creeks, the glacier nearby and the climbing park in the environs of the cabin.
