‘We all had a huge amount of fun and I would recommend Tanya and snowshoeing to anyone, even if you are a skier. You go to places skiers don’t and it is so peaceful. A really wonderful experience!’

Overview

Believed to be invented over 4000 years ago as a means to help people walk by spreading their body weight across the snow. Today, modern snowshoes work in exactly the same way and retain a similarity to those used in ancient times.

Snowshoeing is easy to learn, low impact and entirely safe, providing a fantastic way to explore winter regions.

We can offer half day, full day and evening torchlight adventures or a variation of the above.

Snowshoeing is something everyone can do and is a great way to experience the mountains!

Our three experienced guides,Tanya, Julien and Clive cover Val du’ Abondance, St Jean D, Morzine, Les Gets, Samoen, Vallee Brevon and Vallee Verte so we’ve got it covered!

Snowshoe Intro

 

Let us introduce you to……

Snowshoeing for the first time: “Whatever your aspirations and level of experience, we work with you to offer a truly fabulous day out in the mountains.”

  • Fitness – we explore easy gradients on the hike and allow plenty of time to take photos and enjoy the winter wonderland.
  • Equipment – we supply and make sure snowshoes are correctly fitted along with poles
  • Too many skiers around – the whole aim of snowshoeing is to get away from the crazy busy pistes and enjoy a tranquil experience
  • Chairlifts – sometimes we use chairlifts to access the higher mountains, however if you are not keen on such transport let us know and we can present some great options.

Our trips run from Châtel, Chapelle du Abondance and Abondance, located in the Abondance Valley, Port du Soleil. Also Lac Vallon, Roc du Enfer and Hirmentaz in Vallee Brevon, Vallee Verte and Samoen. In Châtel we are so close to the Swiss border you will often find yourself hiking between countries.

Want something different, maybe to include a refuge lunch stop, or an evening snowshoe with fondue? Drop us an email at info@com.livebreathehike.co.uk or call us on +33 (0)6 73 77 05 16
