A snowtrail course starting from the artificial icefall where the atmosphere is magical! You'll start out on the plain, which is exposed to the sun, then make your way back through the forest. Striding along this snowtrail itinerary on groomed sections is a real pleasure!
Specific snowtrail markers are installed for the winter season (red markers with a white and blue snowflake). Sometimes you'll find the sticker alone on the Nordic area marker boards!
On some sections of this route, you will be using a cross-country ski track. Dog sleds may also frequently pass by: keep in line on the right-hand side of the route.
This route is also perfectly suited to snowshoe trekking and is highly recommended!
There are other snowshoeing routes in the valley bottom on flat ground that are also suitable for snowtrailers. Find out more at the Nordic hut at the artificial icefall.
