Who can snowshoe? Well if you can walk you can snowshoe, that’s the beauty of it. No special skills are need and we can make it as easy or hard as you like. To access the backcountry no longer do you need to be able to ski tour or have the expensive ski equipment, we supply the equipment for you and with in no time at all you get the technique. It really is as simple as that.
Snowshoeing can be many things, but two words that really express it are Enchanting and Magical.
Imaging Ambling through a forest looking at animal tracks; whilst all around hangs a special type of silence, punctuated only by bird song and the sound of the snowshoes as we walk. The tree branches heavy with the weight of snow, while your face glows with the tingle of the cold air of a winter’s day. Gaining ridges and summits that are achievable to all, going into the back country away from all the crowds and gaining awe-inspiring panoramas of the huge mountain ranges. Magnificent walks up to beautifully situated restaurants and refuges for delightful lunches, or a night-time soiree before returning to the valley.
BigSmileAdventures are based in Sallanches just outside the Chamonix valley in the Haute Savoie region of the French Alps. This places us in the centre of some of the most beautiful Mountain ranges in France, The Mont Blanc range, the Aravis and Chablais ranges. With almost instant access to all these areas, we can offer something for everyone.
