Whether on snowshoes or skis we’re able to offer a variety of day and multi-day trips within the Swiss Alps of Valais and Vaud.

Snowshoeing is a great winter activity because it is low impact but high in rewards! On these snowshoeing adventures, we will make sure to outline the best route for you and your group. Whether you decide to travel with friends, family, as part of a small or large group, we can find a way to make snowshoeing in Switzerland an experience you will never forget!

Ski touring is a growing winter sport that allows you to ‘earn your turns’ and experience some incredible winter landscapes with off-piste descents. Some off-piste ski experience is essential for this trip.

Off-piste skiing allows you to escape the crowds on the pistes whilst experiencing some of the great terrains of the Swiss Alps. If you’re interested in developing your off-piste skiing skills we can create a trip to meet your needs.

Because we offer flexible itineraries that are adapted to your needs, everyone is welcome to join. Of course, we will assess your level and preferences as well as snow conditions, in order to ensure your enjoyment and safety.

You can either meet us at the agreed starting point, or we can arrange to pick you up from a train station in the Rhône valley, from Montreux to Visp. 

SKI RESORTS we cater to: Leysin, Les Diablerets, Villars, Gryon, Ovronnaz, Anzere, Crans-Montana, Zinal-Grimentz, Nax, Verbier, Champex-Lac, Les Marrecottes, Champery, Morgins, Chatel, Torgon and more…
