The bivouac, built in 1993, is dedicated to Luca Reboulaz (1961-1987), grown in Lignan, Saint Barthélemy. He was keen on mountains, cross-country skiing and ski touring. He became cross-country skiing instructor in 1983, graduated in Turin and worked for the Olivetti company in Ivrea. In July 1987, he died on Becca de Luseney.
From Nus, take the road to Saint Barthélemy, just before the houses, take the fork for Praz where you can leave your car.
