Snowshoe weekend in training

What do you do in the winter when you don't ski?

What do you do when you need to keep up the up hill training on snow in preparation for a summer of challenges , Mont Blanc, Matterhorn to name but a few.

You book a weekend of snowshoeing in and around the Mont Blanc massif.

This is what happend when three ladies from London needed to get some mountain fitness training in winter conditions in preparation for there summer hight mountain challenges.

First time on snowshoes for all three of them & considering they all live in the city a seriously good level of fitness.

Day 1 Saturday: Servoz to Chalets d'Ayeres which gave a good deal of ascent with stunning views throughout.

Day 2 Sunday: Italian Val Ferret & the Refuge Bonatti at 2025 m. Cold & windy conditions but clear & sunny gave amazing views of the Mont Blanc massif from the Italian side.

A great weekend ladies (Nicole, Bernie & Katerina you were a please to trek with for the weekend.
