Useful information

What is snowshoeing?

This activity is essentially walking in the snow. Participants use snowshoes which slip over walking boots or snow boots to provide better grip and avoid sinking into the snow drifts. Walking poles are also used to help with balance. Both the snowshoes and the poles are included in the price of our snowshoeing excursions.

How do I book snowshoeing?

You can book online or over the phone before you arrive in the resort or when you arrive at our main office in Arc 1800 – Villards Village – Bottom of the piste – Tournavelles building.
Booking are subject to availability and your level of fitness.

What should I wear for snowshoeing?

We recommend wearing the same warm, waterproof clothes as you would for skiing, with light layers that you can remove to avoid overheating. Don’t forget gloves, bobble hats, sun glasses, sun cream, a little bottle of water and a small rucksack.
The shoes you wear are very important. They should be completely waterproof and provide ankle support if possible.
Hiking boots are ideal, or après-ski / snow boots. You can rent them from our partners: Intersport Les Villards.

Do I need to be fit to do snowshoeing?

Yes, you need to have a good level of health and fitness but you don’t need to be especially sporty. You will be walking at high altitudes which makes breathing more difficult and makes the effort seem greater.
If you are not sure if you will be able to follow the group, the Sunday snowshoeing excursions are specifically for beginners and those who have just arrived in the resort and are not still adjusting to the altitude. Make the most of these trips to test your level and ask the guide to recommend which walks during the week will be best suited to you.
