Description

Come and discover in my company magnificent winter landscapes during a long snowshoeing weekend in the Bagnes valley, in the heart of the Valais.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to wake up in a comfortable mountain hut surrounded by snow-covered peaks and alpine pastures and pure silence? Imagine waking up in the early morning and your only goal of the day is to discover this beautiful landscape on snowshoes? A glance out the window reminds you where you are. You drink your hot coffee while admiring the vastness of the Valais Alps. Are you ready?

What if the dream comes true? Promising an exceptional and authentic adventure, the Brunet mountain hut, nestled on the heights of the Val de Bagnes at the foot of the Petit Combin, awaits you. This new wooden and stone chalet, renovated and maintained with passion, is the ideal place for your snowshoe trek.

Depending on the weather and conditions we enjoy a snowshoeing day on the foot of the Grand Combin. There will be enough time to analyse our itinerary as we go. We pick nick in the mountains and get back to the cozy hut for a warm apple cake.
After a well deserved siesta we plan tomorrows tour and the descent back down to the valley.
Dinner and night at Cabane Brunet.
