Snowshoeing aperitif at sunset : La Clusaz

Rendez-vous two hours before sunset at Fry Cross Pass. We'll leave on snowshoes off-trail through mountain pastures and clearings to share an aperitif in the middle of nature. The sun declines on La Tournette, the Aravis are tinted with a pinkish color. It's time to enjoy the aperitif with good "local" products. The return will take place at dusk by the glow of our foreheads.
