Snowshoe walking may appear easy and fun, yet it still calls for some stamina because walking through snow can be tiring! Suitable for beginner or inexperienced snowshoers, you will rapidly get used to using the poles and snowshoes on thick, fluffy virgin mountain snow. The program is moderate to difficult and suitable for people in good physical shape. Depending on the weather and snow cover, your guide may change the proposed routes.
