As huge and wild place, the Plateau des Glièrespropose several snowshoeing routes from less than 1hour driving from Annecy
At half-day (about 3 hours), we will move between forest and clearings near the Col des Glières either on the sector of the wetlands, on the plain of Dran or on the mountain of Frêtes.
For the full day (4 to 7 hours of walking), the possibilities are much more extensive. Les chalets des Auges is a classic and intermediate level itinerary that will lead us to a sublime viewpoint on the Aravis mountain range and the Mont-Blanc in the background. The large loop of Les Glières, which goes through the dairy field and the Spée pass is a wild itinerary but also more challenging for the more sporty ones. The Ablon valley with its climbing walls is a more intimate itinerary because it is further away from the cross-country skiing area.
Level required for this outing: From beginner to expert (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.
