Not all the structures which can be reached by cableway today can still be considered refuges. However the Torino refuge deserve to be included in the list because of their historical importance - the Colle del Gigante has been used by mountaineers since the times of Horace-Bénédict de Saussure - and the role which it plays for mountaineers heading towards Mont-Blanc du Tacul, its satellites, and Dente del Gigante and Aiguille de Rochefort.
