What to wear?
Dress warm, but not too warm. Dress for activity and bring extra layers to add/ remove accordingly. Windproof shell layers are a must! We recommend hooded jackets as well as a wooly hat and neck. Thick mittens and thinner gloves.
From February onwards bring sunglasses. Goggles in addition.
The choice of footwear is very important. Our snowshoe bindings will work on pretty much anything, BUT snowshoes don't protect your feet from getting cold and wet. Your feet are, after all, covered by snow most of the time. Footwear should be warm and comfortable to walk in. Hiking boots and warm (woolen) socks are the best choice. No trainers or skiboots! We recommend the use of gaiters.
What else to bring?
On the longer trips you need to have a backpack for drinks, food, extra layers and camera.
Where do we meet?
Unless otherwise specified: Vestlia Resort reception area.
All snowshoe activities are at your own risk.
Snowshoeing is an outdoor activity with varying weather and surface conditions. The activity demands good health and a minimum of coordination skills. Participants need to assure that their health is appropriate and that they will inform the guide of eventual exceptions.
