Snowshoeing & Night in a refuge above La Clusaz

Experience a winter night in a mountain refuge. In the afternoon, we will leave for a snowshoe hike of about 2h30 through the beautiful spruce forests and meadows. As we go along, the view, which emerges, will let us see the magnificent snow-covered peaks of the Bornes and Aravis mountains. The sun, which sets, tints the peaks of the Pointe Perçée mountain that protrudes in the distance with a pink colour. The refuge is not far now, smoke is coming out of the chimney. I can't wait until we get there to warm up and share a good Savoyard meal by candlelight!
