Description

This snowshoeing stay in the Champsaur valley is a discovery trip: it is mainly aimed at people who want to discover the activity and who are not especially great sportsmen! The efforts are not violent and the altitude differences are modest, the main thing is to have fun. It will be especially the occasion to make you discover my secret corners of Champsaur.

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

Small groups of 8 persons maximum: I favour conviviality.
