Not keen on skiing or snowboarding but love nature?
Or perhaps just wish to take a day off the slopes to discover unspoilt, tranquil surroundings ski touring or by snowshoe, avoiding the hustle and bustle of ski lifts and ‘wannabe’ racers on the pistes. Immerse yourself in the wintry splendours of magnificent panoramas and with a bit of luck, spot foxes, hares, eagles and more wildlife in their natural habitat.
Improve your physical condition and enjoy these beauties at your own pace.
