Description

This snowshoeing stay in the Hautes Alpes is a discovery stay of 4 massifs. It is aimed at people who want to discover the mountainous massifs that surround the city of Gap! The efforts are not violent and the differences in altitude remain modest, the main thing being to have fun. It will be especially the occasion to make you discover my secret spots around Gap.

In addition to the fun aspect of these outings, this snowshoeing trip will bring you to autonomy. You will discover how to make the right choices in terms of itinerary research and safety (you will learn how to use an avalanche beacon and to probe the snow). And above all, you will enjoy the beautiful landscapes in the sun of the Hautes-Alpes, walking at your own pace!

Small groups of 10 people maximum: I favour conviviality.
