Description

This snowshoeing stay in 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 elevations are modest, the main thing is to have fun.

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, safety (you will learn how to use an transceiver and to probe the snow), and finally enjoy the beautiful Champsaurins landscapes under the sun of the Hautes-Alpes, by walking at your own pace!

Program

D0 (Sunday): reception from 3pm, equipment setting and welcome drink.

D1 (Monday): Hike.
This day is devoted to the discovery of the activity and the valley: choice and settings of equipment, warm up, taking into account everyone's expectations, security concepts (transceiver demo, little explainations on nivology).

D2 (Tuesday): Wildlife outing (chamois, ibex).
Snowshoeing is not only a goal in itself, it will also allow you, in the valley of Champoléon or Prapic, to observe the chamois and ibex with binoculars and long view.

D3 (Wednesday): Valley of Molines or Serre-Eyraud, discovery of the forest.
Relaxing day in the forest. Slow climb to the refuge. Pick up dead wood for our fire and grill over a wood fire! In the direction of the pass, we will take a few steps to discover the top of the valley and snowy northern faces. Beautiful show in perspective!
