Snowshoeing: Le grand-bornand

Le Grand-Bornand, a family ski resort, is also an authentic Haut-Savoyard village with its very specific architecture. It is located at the foot of the Massif du Bargy, which is home to the Alpine ibex and the bearded vulture. These two species have been reintroduced by man during the 21st century. In this mountain environment where the relief is well marked, the mountain guides will guide you on the itineraries adapted to snowshoeing to discover the charm of a forgotten mountain pasture chalet at the bottom of a coomb.

In half a day (about 3 hours), we will discover the many itineraries above Grand-Bornand at the foot of the Roc de Charmieux and the Roc des Tours. The terrain is soft and particularly suitable for snowshoeing. We will evolve in the heart of many mountain pastures (La Culaz, Les parchets, la Tannaz) lost in the middle of the forest with the majestic Aravis mountain range as a backdrop. The setting is ideal to recharge your batteries in the silence of nature.
During the day (about 6 hours), we propose you a balcony itinerary, "The Aravis balcony" which will lead us to the big mountain. In fact, this first-rate itinerary will be done in front of the Aravis mountain range and at the pierced point are the highest point (2750m) in a beautiful pastoral setting.

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.
