Refuge de Saint-Laurent
Refuge de Saint-Laurent is a high mountain refuge at an elevation of 2.492m (8,175ft) above the sea level, located in the municipality of Nendaz, in the district of Conthey in the canton of Valais in Switzerland.
The road to the summit is very narrow (impassable for 2 cars at the same time), gravel and pretty steep with several hairpin turns. It starts at the Lac de Cleuson dam, along the left side of the lake. It’s beautiful, remote, fantastic. The road is only accessible in summer. It is impassable from November to May due the snow, and the road can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. The drive overlooks the Valley of Nendaz and the panoramic view extends as far as the chain of the Bernese Alps. At the refuge, a very rough gravel minor road climbs up to 2.558m (8,392ft) above the sea level.
