new possible accommodation on the way to st bernard pass


I just found this on google video maps. there is a cabane (gîte) with beds and half-pension about 2km climb from the VF path and about 1700m climb from the main road shortly after the highway disappears into the tunnel at bourg-st-bernard. bourg-st-bernard (1902m) is about halfway from bourg-st-pierre (1632m) to the pass (2469m), roughly 6.5km from bourg-st-pierre, and before the steep climb starts.
on their site it says that the cabane (at 2052m) reopens in march 2019. this looks like a very promising option for those to whom a single day from bourg-st-pierre might not be enough or if the conditions for the climb to the pass are not favourable.

Cabane du Plan du Jeu, + 41 (0)79 428 01 75, a dorm with 22 beds and duvets, showers, toilets, dinner and a hearthy breakfast, half-pension chf 79.
