Frosty fun

Snowshoeing

The Grand Massif is a paradise for snowshoeing.
 From 700 to 3100 m above sea level, there is something for everyone: walking alongside the river Giffre, a half-day trek to explore the animal life (animal tracks, etc.).
The winter landscapes are breathtaking! This “low volume” activity lets you soak up the quiet sounds of nature…
