Then off you go for any hike you wish, at the sure and quiet step of your long-eared companion. All the walks are flexible according to your wishes.

Advice for hikers

Most of the classic summer walking itineraries are unadvised during the winter months. Hiking outside of the resort’s safe domain requires personal responsibility and respecting specific safety regulations:

Look closely at your chosen itinerary and the possible risks

Take into account the weather forecast and snow conditions including avalanche risk

The correct clothing and equipment for physical exertion in cold conditions

Provide your itinerary information to your friends or family, or to where you are staying

Snowshoes (even if they have improved in design) are not adapted to steep slopes, or frozen hardpack snow.
