Snowshoeing and fun activities for all the family

You can also set out snowshoeing from your chalet for a family walk along one of the suggested routes. By taking the Gyr route, which leaves from Vallouise, you can reach Pelvoux, either by foot or with snowshoes, and depending on the weather conditions, you can then carry on snowshoeing to Ailefroide. The route along the plains is also ideal for a walk in the snow.
