Around Bruson

The forest trolls were wondering what we were doing there too! But once out of the trees and pine needle snow it was glorious!

Snowshoeing Fionnay

I just love this area, it has everything. You can pic-nic by the summer mayens (wooden shacks) or jump over the river! Animal tracks are all over too, simply marvelous!

Snowshoeing at the Lac de Tannay

Wonderful day with the snow trolls! Just wish the snow angels would give us a bit of fresh snow to play in! The views here and the tranquility are heavenly!

Winter in Verbier

The river in Fionnay (La Dranse) is a sight right now! The snow has mushroomed up on top of the rocks to create some fabulous artistic views! Call me soon to go see them yourself!

Snowshoeing in Verbier

This is the perfect time for snowshoeing in Verbier - the high pressure is sending us sunny skies till the beginning of March apparently! So put a pair on and come with me to see the wild animal tracks and imbibe in the beauty of the fresh alpine views!

Verbier & the 4 Valleys

How did I get so lucky to get invited to this magnificient outing?! As the only girl I better not do anything stupid so I can come again! Unfortunately it will not become a place to snowshoe to. But we can hike up here in the summer!

What a view!

The cime de l'Est - part of the Dents du Midi seen from the Col des Martinets.
Thank you Antony for schlepping up over 1500 meters with me! And waiting for me to get down the steepest couloir I have ever skied in my life!
This is not a place for snowshoeing to the top, but the forest is worth it!

Snowshoeing above Martigny

I think the snow angels live here! Everytime I have been in this area it has snowed! The forest is beautiful and full of wild animals. There are lots of wild hare tracks & I have seen a chamois staring at me between the trees - which I really did not expect considering the noise one makes on snowshoes!
