    Introduction to the area with a snowshoe towards the foot of Mont Joly.

    Our first day on snowshoes begins directly from the hotel as we walk up in the direction of the hamlet les Baptieu. This route is relatively undiscovered and a good introduction to the area, with some good views of Mont Blanc. Initially starting in the forest, the trail then opens up with a panorama with a small alpine village dierctly below us. If luck is also on our side, today is also a good today to potentially spot some of the wilder residents of the area such as Chamois.

    Snowshoe to the Mayeres Chalets and explore the Aravis mountain range.

    After a transfer by private transport to the hamlet of La Charmette above Sallanches, today's snowshoe begins in the direction of the Mayeres Chalets. We will then explore the Aravis mountain range which offers a completely different perspective of the area in an open terrain. As we gain a bit of altitude during the walk today there is a possibility of seeing the whole side side of the Mont Blanc chain. Mont Blanc and Les Drus are particularly impressive to see from here. The descent will be in the fresh snow of the north east where the snow is at its best!

    Transfer to the end of Les Contamines Valley to follow an old Roman track to Nant Borrand.

The area around here is beutiful, with a succession of Alpine meadows and old chalets still very well preserved. This day is also perfect to observe some remarkable geologic features like moraines, evidence of erosion and rocks of different types.
