Please send me an email or call me to confirm - dates can change fast and adjustements are often made due to the weather, snow conditions and group numbers. A day-long snowshoe hike starting at Hautacam ski station. The level could be described as being between "moderate" and "difficult". A physical challenge but do-able by anyone who has a reasonable level of fitness. The exact itinerary will be adapted to the overall fitness level of the group. Fantastic views of the plains of Tarbes as well as the higher peaks of the central Pyrenees. Explanations about local legends, animals, animal tracks, etc. If there is not much snow at Hautacam, the walk will be replaced with another snowshoe hike elswhere in the valley. Transport will be by car-sharing (I will call you the previous evening to organise this and confirm meeting place and times). Please bring a rucksack with water, snack, packed lunch, sunglasses, suncream. Dress according to the weather forecast and always allow space in your rucksack for taking off extra layers of clothing when it gets hot (use an "onion" system of multiple thin layers allowing you to adapt your body's temperature to the changing environment). You must have boots with ankle support. Enquiries: 0033 (0)781510460 and garethdegazost@gmail.com
