Themed snowshoe trek - The forest in Winter

Sports and leisure, Winter sports, Snow-shoe in Le Châble

From :  25CHF Full-fare
  • An introduction to wintering in the forest
    On this afternoon snowshoe hike, you’ll find out more about how the forest works in winter and briefly share in the life of its inhabitants.

  • When winter arrives, we fetch our woollen jumpers and coats and turn up the heating, or start a nice fire and sip hot chocolate in front of it. But how do the residents of the forest prepare for the wintry weather?

    To find out, join a qualified guide in the forests around Verbier, which are home to squirrels, stags and chamois even in the depths of winter. What do they eat? Where do they sleep? How do they get the most out of their environment?
