Activity description

Xavier Gadart invites you to go on a snowshoeing excursion around Chamonix for 3 or 5 hours at a slow pace, with an exceptional panorama of the Mont Blanc massif!

The snowy mountain is a world of fragile & ephemeral beauty, with a very particular atmosphere. Progressing along a ridge, making your trails in the snow, climbing a summit... From the discovery walk to the ascension scale, snowshoeing is accessible to all and opens up countless opportunities to travel the winter mountains.

Whether you are a beginner or a confirmed athlete, you will share the pleasure of being "up there"! And if some routes require good skills, the most beautiful ones are often accessible to the greatest number of people.

Depending on the conditions, you will discover a summit or Belvedere around Chamonix: Chalet Chailloux or Aiguillette des Houches, Alpage de la Loriaz, Mont Truc & the chalets of Miage, Ayères, Posettes...

Xavier offers you a half or full day snowshoeing excursion:
- Half-day excursion: walk of 2-3 hours and around 300m of ascending elevation.
- Full day excursion: walk of 4-5 hours and around 800m of ascending elevation.

I recommend doing this activity when it’s nice and sunny. Xavier is an amazing guide and host of this activity. My friends and I had a fun afternoon hiking around the snow clad mountains and chasing waterfalls . It requires no prior experience / knowledge. Xavier is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the region and the sport.

Great afternoon

Randonnée raquettes

Xavier was a great guide. Really enjoyed snow shoeing. He took us through deep snow in the most beautiful location. He was really easygoing ,helpful and patient, as there were many photo stops or occasions when some of us disappeared in the snow.

It was a lot of fun - we started on the trail atop Prarion gondola and then at times went off piste on the way back. We enjoyed fresh snow, good activity (sometime you go down up to your knees even with snowshoes) and amazing views

Excellent!
