THE ITINERARIES :

The itineraries are aimed at people who have already done a day's snowshoeing and who are able to walk with a rucksack for their overnight gear.

2 days/1 night stay - Fond des Fours refuge (stay 1: Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 March; stay 2: Friday 5 and Saturday 6 April)

The Fond des Fours refuge is a refuge in the Vanoise National Park located on the heights of Val d'Isère at an altitude of 2537 m. 3 small wooden huts to spend a pleasant evening close to the stars. A great opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the valley and to discover in springtime splendid panoramas of some of the highest peaks of the Vanoise.

This hike is aimed at walkers who have already done some snowshoe trekking. 

Programme :

Day 1: first day's walk from Val d'Isère to the Fond des Fours hut (ascent: 660 m; 4? hours' walk).

Day 2: second day towards a high summit of the Vanoise: depending on the conditions, La pointe des Lorès South (D+: 400m; D-: 1100 m; 6h30 walk) or Pointe de la Bézin.

 

4 days/3 nights stay - Tour de la Sana (from Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th April)

This spring, we propose a 4-day, 3-night snowshoe hut tour (refuges de la Leisse, de la Femma and du Fonds des Fours). This itinerary will take us across vast plateaux occupied by ancient glacial lakes, up the long Femma valley and over passes at 2900 m altitude.
