Snowshoe signs in Chamonix

Not everyone visiting the Alps in winter is a ski/board fanatic! some come to discover a new area, switch off the stress and do some exercise.  One of the best ways to get out of town and away from the crowds is to strap on a pair of snowshoes and head  for the hills.

Our advice would be to enlist the professional services of a snowshoe guide such as Alpinetreks who are based in the Chamonix valley and know where to go and where not to go depending on snow conditions.

However, even without a guide there are some wonderful walks to discover in and around the valley that are only accessible to those on snowshoes.  Ask at the tourist office for a simple map that will point you in the right direction.
