Family snowshoeing in Verbier

Beautiful day with tons of animal tracks all over the place! Huge avalanches have gone off above the Savolères - Carrfour road in Verbier. You really need to know where to go and remember that snowshoeing takes place in the mountains. The risks are the same as for ski touring.

Snowshoeing Verbier

Although Verbier seems like it only has new chalets, we managed to snowshoe up to the cow sheds that are still used in summers. There was surprisingly good powder snow too! What a bonus!

Ski touring Martigny

This summit is so pleasant to get to. We managed to plan it for the opening in the clouds so we could oooh & ahhhh at the Mont Blanc!

Fionnay - Mauvoisin

Ahhh, first trip this winter up to the end of the Val de Bagnes. Just so peaceful up here. Not sure if we saw a bouquetin (ibex) or if it was just a rock in the sun?!

Hikes at night!

And who says you can't see in the dark? The snow helps light the way!
