Wandering through snowy winter woods, follwing a mountain stream through the valley. That sounds good, but unfortunately we often sink deep into the snow and come home exhausted. How happy we are with our'" raquettes à neige"!
Traditionally, these special tools underneath your boots were used to travel easily. From the 1960's onwardss these raquettes were increasingly used for recreation. How does it work? Very simple. You buckle them under your regular (mountain)shoes, grab a few ski poles and enjoy-without-sinking the beautiful surroundings of hotel Esprit Montagne.
La Chapelle and the surrounding Vallée d'Abondance offer several snow walks. Most of them you will find on on special hiking maps.
The snowshoes can be rented at the hotel and at various sports shops in La Chapelle d'Abondance.
