LEVELS of snowshoeing :

To help you choose the level of your snowshoe outing, here is a classification that takes into account the difference in altitude, the distance and the walking time. This classification is to be considered as an indication, knowing that the snow conditions (powdery, loose...) at the time of the outing can facilitate or on the contrary accentuate the difficulty of the walk. Do not hesitate to discuss this with our advisors.

  • Level 1: almost no change in altitude, less than 2 km, a short hour's walk, you sometimes leave the lift to go up to the 3rd floor by the stairs, this outing is for you.
  • Level 2: 150 to 200 m of gentle slopes, between 2 and 3 km, 2 hours of effective walking, you walk regularly to get to your activities, this outing is for you.
  • Level 3: around 200 m of change in altitude on a path with some passages with sustained slopes, around 3 km, 2h30 to 3h of walking, you practice a sporting activity every week, this outing is for you.
  • Level 4 : more than 400 m of difference in altitude on a trail with sometimes steep slopes, between 5 and 7 km of walking, more than 5 hours of walking, you have already practiced snowshoeing and practice a sport activity every week, this outing is for you.
  • Level 5: more than 600 m of ascent and/or descent with steep passages, more than 7 km of walking, more than 6 hours of walking, you have already snowshoed several times, you are able to carry a bag of 8 to 10 kg and you practice a sporting activity several times a week, this outing is for you.

We took a snowshoeing tour with Jean Louis our guide. It was great Jean Louis was great he explained us a lot of things and was very attentive to us about the rhythm. I highly recommend!

Why go snowshoeing when you can ski?

Tignes and Val d'Isère are famous for their skiing, but did you know that there are parts of the mountains without ski lifts within a 10-minute drive? 

One way to discover these wilderness trails is on snowshoes. Snowshoeing offers a peaceful wilderness experience. The only sound you'll hear is the crunch of snow beneath your feet. This activity promises total immersion in silent nature, far from the surrounding noise of the resort.  

The area around Val d'Isère is also home to some fascinating winter wildlife. There's a good chance of spotting animal tracks, and maybe you'll be able to spot a black grouse or even a chamois!  

All in all, snowshoeing in Val d'Isère is an excellent way to discover the mountains from a whole new angle, surrounded by the natural beauty of the French Alps.
