The first snow has fallen and it's nearly time to get out your skis and snowshoes!
This winter we have new trips for those of you who enjoy cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The Mont Blanc Snowshoe and Ski Week is aimed at those who have little or no experience of either activity but who are keen to experience a winter wonderland. During the week you have the chance to try both activities. Our Nordic Ski 'Fitness' Training Week is designed to provide you with a chance to learn an excellent method of winter ‘cross-training’ by trying both skating and classic cross country ski-styles. Arguably the most aerobic of sports, this low impact sport, is a great way to improve your fitness - at all levels.
For fans of snowshoeing we have two very different trips running this coming winter. Our Mont Blanc Snowshoe Week is based in Chamonix Valley from which we aim to explore some wonderful summits and cols in both France and Switzerland. We hope to include an ascent of the Dent de Valerette which gets us 'up close' to the famous Dents du Midi range. We are also running our Snowshoe Safaris which are an excellent introduction to snowshoeing. These trips involve a long weekend in the Vaud region of Switzerland making a journey over the mountains while your baggage is transferred by taxi.
