Snow shoeing and winter walking – winter season 2015

Last winter accompanied by Douglas Philp, I spent a very enjoyable week exploring the Oisans region with a view to running hosted snow-shoeing holidays this winter.

Douglas, is a fully qualified European Accompanieur with many years of mountaineering, hill walking and snow-shoeing experience, will bring confidence, and humour to the group – whether you are already an experienced snowshoer, or trying this activity for the first time.

The local domain for the snowshoer and walker is vast, majestic and largely unaffected by the presence of skiers. The Oisans Mountains offer a wealth of opportunity to ‘escape’ and discover a region inhabited by chamois, ibex, golden eagles and white foxes.

The local mountains are varied and our daily walks will take us through way marked valley trails, forest tracks and onto high mountain pastures and snow fields leading to exhilarating Alpine ridges and peaks. Views are spectacular in every direction.

Our itineraries are varied and will be planned daily on the prevailing weather and snow conditions, and the competence of the group.

Suggested weeks: 

Price will depend on the choice of accommodation – La Source or alternative self catering or hotel accommodation. Budget on an additional £200.00 to cover the cost of guide, safety equipment, transport and picnic lunches. This cost is based on obtaining a minimum of 10 persons. Ski passes will not be required for snowshoeing weeks.

We hope that you maybe interested in joining us this winter?  Please make contact and we can provide you with a detailed itinerary and discuss your individual requirements
