A few recommendations
The snowshoeing trail is in the heart of the ski area. Please watch out for skiers close to the rail, and when the trail runs alongside a ski slope please keep to the edge of the slope and always check that no skiers are coming down before crossing.
Before leaving, make sure you check the weather forecast and please follow the following safety rules:
- Stay on the signposted routes
- Do not set out if there is a risk of heavy snow
- If you are going alone, tell someone where you are going and make sure your cell phone is fully charged
Choose a route adapted to your level
There is no closing check of routes in the evening, all itineraries are taken at your own risk.
In winter the animals need to conserve all their energy, anything that scares them could end up being fatal to them. Please stay on marked routes to limit any disturbance to their habitat.
