SNOWSHOES OUTINGS IN SAINTE-FOY
An ideal activity for non-skiers, an enjoyable moment discovering nature for all the family to experience together

SNOWSHOEING

Ideal activity for non-skiers, it brings together children, parents and grandparents for a pleasant immersion into the nature.

Within two hours, half day or day walks, you discover the local forests of larches and spruces where animal footprints  (mountain hare, deer, squirrel, ptarmigan, fox…) are so much evidence of the intense life that takes place in the mountains !

Explore as well some of the 50 hamlets of Saint Foy’s region, among which the famous classified hamlet of Monal. All these hamlets are the vestiges of the Savoyard way of life of the last century.

Our mountain leader will share with you all its extensive knowledge of wildlife and mountain lifestyle.

IGLOO ADVENTURE

Don’t miss our igloo adventure – a fun après-ski activity for all the family ! This activity is accessible to toddlers. Put on a pair of snowshoes and accompanied by our mountain leader come to visit our igloo. On site a ton of activity awaits you: treasure hunt, built an igloo, built a fire pit to roast your marshmallows…

There you can also relax with an après-ski drink and local product tasting while the kids enjoy snacks, hot drink and games in the igloo. We then go for a short torchlit walk on snowshoe, where the magical atmosphere of stars above and snow-covered forest below will leave you all exhilarated and enchanted.
