It's great to get the chance to explore new areas and after weeks of pouring over maps and guidebooks we have put together two new trips. One is going to be based in the village of Nevache, near Briancon and it looks fabulous. Nevache actually means 'snowy land' and it seems it's already living up to it's reputation with lots of snow in valley already this winter.
Our other new trip is not so far from our Alpine base in Chamonixand takes advantage of some great routes on offer from the village of from Samoens where we can tackle such great mountain days as the Tete de la Bostan.
Both these trips take the nature of 'scouting' trips and we will only take people with a good sense of adventure who are up for having a day exploring! If you think that's you then do get in touch. It's best to email us to discuss the trips and we will be happy to talk you through the fitness required etc. However, anyone with a reasonable level of walking fitness should be up to the mark. I have attached the two itineraries below for information. We currently have 5 people booked on the Samoens Week, and 4 on the Nevache week, so there are a few places left as we take a maximum of 8 on each week.
Meantime, here in Chamonix it just keeps snowing and snowing so we are set for a great winter in the mountains.
