Snow Activities

Snowshoe circuits

Praz sur Arly has two marked circuits for snowshoeing:

The Evettes Circuit is a lovely walk through forest and clearings. Beautiful views over the Aravis range and the Arly valley add to the pleasure of this hike accessible to all (10 years and over). About 1 hour and 50 minutes round trip. Access: either from the Rosière chairlift (pedestrian access up and down is paying) or by car from the Bernards or Grabilles parking lots.

The Cassioz and Thouvassières circuit is a perfect itinerary to discover life in the surrounding hamlets and have an exceptional view of the Arly Valley. This is a new marked trail of about one-and-a-half hours round trip, leaving from the parking lot at the foot of the slopes.
