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!

Walking times are calculated from an average speed defined in the hiking difficulty levels sheet. These are indicative times that do not include breaks. Of course in winter snow is an additional parameter to be taken into account. Good hard snow walkers will find the schedules overvalued, small fresh snow walkers will find the schedules significantly undervalued. The itinerary may be slightly modified for security reasons (weather, level of participants) or for organisational reasons (availability of accommodation).
