Description

Snowshoeing in the Ecrins and Mercantour National Parks

When winter comes and snow starts falling, the mountains’ singular beauty becomes a haven of peace. So it’s time to put your snowshoes and go in search of treasures that nature reveals in this season.

Pristine landscapes, wildlife signs and observation, or even igloo building will delight you on outings where the keywords are sharing, conviviality and safety.

Alone, with your family, friends or with an existing group, I offer different formulas in which many hikes are possible following your discovery cravings, your fitness and the resort at which you are staying.

Here are the different formulas

1/2 discovery day

– Accessible hiking from 8 years old on.

– Positive altitude change less than 200 meters.

– Fun hiking, recommended for families.

Ideal formula for a first approach to snowshoeing. We start on easy routes, to understand this walking technique, while experiencing the living species adaptation in this mountain environment so special. Being in wilderness becomes a pleasure!

Discovery day

– Accessible hiking from 8 years old on.

– Positive altitude change less than 200 meters

– Sliding and snow pleasure guaranteed, ideal for families.

I offer a fun snow approach during this discovery day. After the wild animals and their tracks search in the morning, the afternoon will be dedicated to build a snow hut (igloo / tunnel), and to explore the research techniques for avalanche victims.

Hiking day

– Hiking available from 12 years old on.

– Positive altitude change between 200 and 500 meters.

– A day dedicated to discover the mountain in winter.

Through hilly course propitious to snowshoeing, the objective is to find the best snow where to leave our mark, while exploring the mountain environment in winter. You will discover footprints, wild animals, adaptation and survival techniques through landscapes where peace and serenity reign.

Night hike and mountain meal

– Accessible walking from 8 years old on.

– Negative altitude change of 650 meters.

– Authentic atmosphere guaranteed!

After a chairlift, a fabulous descent of the Chau plateau into the sunset and torchlight awaits us. Guided by the scent of mountain specialties, the Alisiers restaurant welcomes us on the fireplace for a local meal.

If you plan to come to the Ecrins or Mercantour National Parks this winter, don’t hesitate to contact me to organize an outing together. I would be happy to ‘guide’ you in these beautiful valleys and make you discover some of my secret places.
