Cassecroute Picnic Tables at Refuge Albert 1, Chamonix

Mountain refuge Albert 1er is a remarkable place near the ‘Du Tour’ glacier in the French Alps. Situated at the Mont Blanc Massif near Chamonix, at 2700m above sea level, the chalet sits on a mountain slope without access roads, and is loved by hikers and mountaineers.

Three helicopter rides took 11 Cassecroute Picnic Tables to this recently modernised mountain refuge. It’s the first mountain refuge inaugurated by late king Albert I in 1935.
