Rendez-vous 2 hours before sunset at the top of Semnoz. We will go off-piste on snowshoes through the mountain pastures and the spruce forest to share an extraordinary aperitif. The sun declines and tints the atmosphere with a pinkish colour. It is time to take a "aperitif" break and share good Savoyard products while enjoying the show. Once night falls, the return will be by the light of our head-light.
