Enjoy the mountain in a different way... Using snowshoes

A communion

with nature

No, in winter, the mountain is not just for skiing. You, you prefer the calm and slowly discover the landscapes to enjoy the mountain otherwise in snowshoes. Warmed by the sun’s rays, you slowly progress on the snowshoe trails on the Prapoutel, Pipay or Pleynet side. Depending on the place, you can see some animal tracks in the snow, even small rabbits coming out of a grove.

It’s time to let go and enjoy a relaxing break in the 7 Laux resort in total immersion with nature. Your ears only hear the murmur of a small stream that you run along or the sound of the wind in the branches of the fir trees. By rubbing against the branch of the fir trees too closely, snow has just fallen into your neck. It’s cold, but you feel alive.

Step by step, you feel the snowshoes slamming behind you on the hiking trails of Prapoutel or Pleynet. If your steps seem to get heavier and heavier, it’s time to slam your snowshoe and leave the “tonne” of snow that has clung to it. Inevitably, once this is done, you feel lighter and can resume your hike more joyfully. Despite the effort, you feel light. This feeling of being able to walk on the snow and enjoy the mountain in a different way is more than pleasant.

Snowshoe hiking

If to introduce you to snowshoeing, the marked trails will be more than enough to oxygenate you, the more seasoned can set out to conquer the summits for half-day or day hikes. Several activities allow you to get as close as possible to the summits of Belledonne and enjoy the mountain in a different way using snowshoes, to focus your hikes on discovering the animal world or on the practice of snowshoeing in a more zen or yoga manner. Snowshoe outings also exist for the youngest (school for the little mountaineers) or at sunset.

After this beautiful snowshoe outing and after some effort you think you deserve some comfort? In this case, it’s the cauldron hikes that you need. A snowshoe outing that ends with a friendly time shared around a fondue prepared in the cauldron.
