Snowshoeing in Verbier!

Verbier is an ideal place to snowshoe!
The views are magnificient and the trees are friendly spots with lots of animal tracks around! I am really lucky to have this as my back-yard. I hope you come and join me!

Fresh snow in Fionnay

Well it was one of those mornings - do we take the snowshoes or not? Of course since it had been snowing for over 10 hours you would think that we would have taken them...As it was a lazy Sunday we thought we were stronger than nature! It seems as though I have to do at least one outing like this each winter to make sure I know why I use snowshoes in the first place! Thanks for helping me guys! And I won't listen to you next time - yeah right!

Les Haudères - Lac Bleu

Another succesful Saturday fall walk! The lake was the perfect pic-nic spot and the trails were empty, except for us! We went a bit higher than expected, the path has been taken away by a landslide. But we made it back to the car just as it was getting dark (too early these days!!) and we got to see the sunset on the Dent Blanche!

Witepods at Les Giettes

Today I went and checked out a magical place to take you! In the winter you heat up your "pod" with a wood stove. Just like sleeping in an igloo, except that you have windows to check ou the view! And what a view! The spa is going to be open soon and I just can't wait to take advantage of it after a long walk in the area around the Portes du Soleil.
