Snowshoeing has become very popular in all winter resorts over the last years. Touring to the slopes and hiking up the hills on these ‘rackets’ gives you the opportunity to admire pure nature in remote locations, accessible only to mountaineers. Reaching heights up to the hills with breathtaking panoramas is the best reward for your efforts.
