Snowshoeing – another way to enjoy the mountains

Snowshoeing is a Great Way to Enjoy the Mountains

If you’re looking for a little mountain adventure that’s something different to skiing or snowboarding, snowshoeing may be the thing for you.

With Barney strapped to my chest and Sam carrying a small bag of essentials (including for the first time a nappy and bottle for Barney!), we headed up to the pisted snowshoeing area at Samoëns 1600. The snow conditions were great (as you’ll see in a photo below, in places the snow was nearly 2 metres deeper than the piste) and the sun was out.

Deep snow awaits those off-piste adventurers

After a short stroll down the skiers piste for about 100 metres, we headed off on to the snowshoeing trail for our winter adventure. The snowshoeing trail had been groomed by the piste bashers to make it more friendly underfoot although there are plenty of unprepared routes for a more adventurous day out.

We offer dedicated snowshoeing holidays in Chalet La Roche through Outbreak Adventure should you wish to join like-minded snow lovers for a week of catered luxury and guided snowshoeing.

If you’re just after a taster or a day doing something different on your skiing holiday, we can also arrange a half-day or day with one of our local guides with prices starting from as low as €20.
