Snowshoeing: La clusaz - Manigod

La Clusaz and Manigod are typical high Savoyard mountain villages. They are located at the foot of the imposing Aravis mountain range and its numerous combes, a paradise for off-piste skiers. We are also in the heart of the reblochon country, this world famous cheese. This pastoral history has shaped the natural spaces creating a mosaic of varied landscapes. It is within this framework that we propose you to discover the most beautiful itineraries of the area. You will evolve in undergrowth, on off-trail portions and then after a little effort you will reach the summits to enjoy exceptional panoramas.

Program

Many itineraries can be done in half a day (about 3 hours). At the Aravis pass, a loop is possible via the plachaux and the Cornet ridge. We are then at the border between Savoie and Haute-Savoie. The atmosphere here is more vertical, more alpine and the view on the Mont-Blanc is sublime. It is not uncommon to observe chamois here as well. The head of the Danay, this modest summit above La Clusaz, is a beautiful goal in itself because it is a magnificent viewpoint on the Aravis. The plateau of Follières, which is located above the Maison des bois where the famous restaurateur Marc Veyrat works, is also a "snowshoeing" destination that is not to be missed in the area.
For day trips, we will go further west in the direction of Mount Charvin. We will have the choice between the classic Sulens mountain, or less frequented routes such as the Pointe d'Orsière or the Tour map.

Level required for this outing: From beginner to confirmed (See the article on snowshoe levels for self-assessment)

You have understood that the choice is wide and the mountain leader in charge of the outing will adapt the itinerary to the level of the group and to the weather and snow conditions to ensure your safety and for everyone to enjoy themselves.
