The FXB Panossière refuge is the fifth refuge built at Panossière.
The first shelter was built under a rock face in 1881, then in 1893 a wooden shelter was built. In 1969 a stone shelter was built  but was destroyed by an avalanche in 1988. This was replaced by a temporary refuge until the current refuge was built and inaugurated in 1996 with the support of the FXB Foundation.

The actual avant-gardist design is a high  mountain refuge providing simple comfort. It is not a mountain hotel, FXB Panossière remains a refuge for hikers and mountaineers.
In fact, the electricity, heating and water suply is sometimes problematic at this altitude despite the sophistication of current techniques.
