The Pointe d'Andey with snowshoes

Want to make a snowshoe hike a little more sporty? Head for the Plateau de Solaison and the ascent of the Pointe d’Andey, wearing your snowshoes. If this walk makes you sweat in summer, we reassure you (or not) it will have the same effect in winter. But there is always this incredible reward once you reach the top: the breathtaking view. You will have a white paradise to admire, the Plateau de Solaison in winter and all the surrounding peaks dotted with white!

Of course, this is not the only snowshoes hikes you can do on our territory. Come and see us, we’ll be happy to advise you on others equally beautiful hikes, suitable for all levels.
