Guided outings

Enjoy a stroll through the snowy environs at your own pace on snowshoes. Explore the mountains, marvel at the local fauna as you meander through the forest, and follow the tracks of the snow hare, fox, or alpine ibex. Located at the gateway to Vanoise National Park, our snowshoe trails offer sublime panoramic views of the surrounding mountain wilderness.


With ESF ski school

Half-day or all-day outings are scheduled every week of the winter. As soon as you arrive at the resort, check the schedule for the full program of outings. You also have the option of hiring your own guide for a private outing whenever you want.


With Pierrot Descôtes

Pierrot is a very talented hiking guide and photographer! All week long he organizes half-day, all-day, and even overnight excursions on snowshoes, based on your expectations and snow conditions (of course!). He also organizes photo safaris that include an overnight stay in a mountain hut, offering the chance to immortalize your encounters with the area’s wildlife, as well as heading off the beaten path to spend the night in a shepherd’s hut to experience an unforgettable (and rustic) night in the mountains!

Trail running

Whether looking for a breath of fresh air or an escape, explore and run on a designated 5-kilometer snow-covered trail, with 179 meters of vertical gain, through the mountainous terrain surrounding the village.
