During set dates this year, we are offering taster days. These are to suit all abilities and fitness levels. Based in Morzine (French Alps), we will explore stunning locations with fantastic views of the Mont Blanc Massif and Haute Giffre.
Exploring this amazing area, we will teach you the skills needed to access the winter environment on snow shoes. Learning as we go about nature, history and taking in amazing vistas of high mountains and glaciers.
A snowshoe is footwear for walking over deep snow. This allows people to access areas in deep powder with ease. Snowshoes work by distributing the weight of a person over a larger area so that one’s foot does not completely sink into the snow; a technique known as “flotation”. When undertaken as a journey, snowshoeing can be enjoyed as a form of hiking.
Here at Mountain Yak, we are snowshoe experts. We only use qualified IML’s (International Mountain Leaders) to lead and teach snowshoeing trips. This is the only recognised qualification for Snowshoeing and a legal requirement in most of Europe.
You will need to dress in appropriate winter clothing, winter footwear (eg walking boots or snow boots), and have a small bag with water/drink along with some food/snacks and warm layers. For more details click useful info page.
