Dent D'Oche - Advice

My partner and I are thinking of asending Dent D’oche in the next few days and staying up on the refuge.

We were going to acend on the simple South face above Chalet D’Oche. Does anyone know if that slope is especially avalahcne prone and what the last ascent up to the refuge is like. It looks protected by cables in Summer.

Also does the refuge have a winter room with blankets and stove. The profile says it does but I wanted to ask if anyone has been up there at this time of the year?




The refuge is fully closed during winter. No room, nothing… (I’ve been there in november).
