No route is too far on snowshoes. They gently carry hikers over a deep blanket of snow. Snowshoeing requires virtually no experience. Anyone who can walk can also snowshoe, thus experiencing the delightful world of pristine winterscapes. Beautiful trails lead through forests, over wide snowfields and along impressive 4000-metre peaks. Once you’ve tried snowshoeing, you’ll always want to come back and leave your tracks in the snow.
Snowshoe trails on the Roc de Cornet
Of the many hiking possibilities in the land of the great St. Bernhard, climbing the Roc de Cornet trail takes you through a beautiful forest. After a sustained climb from the "Chez Petit" hamlet, hikers arrive at the rocky outcropping of Roc de Cornet and rewarded with magnificent views of the Great St. Bernard Pass, as well as the Grand Combin massif, whose highest point reaches 4,300m.
