This is the ultimate snowshoeing trek from the Nordic ski centre of Saint François de Sales: varied atmospheres, low gradient and an exceptional panoramic view at the cross.
At the starting point of the cross-country trails at St-François-de-Sales, the marked snowshoeing trail starts on the right. It crosses the forest and sometimes passes near the cross-country skiers. Be careful not to take the cross-country ski trail in snowshoes. At the exit of the forest, you come out in an open marshland, which is the protected natural area of Creusates. On a clear day, the Shepherds’ Cross can be seen clearly on its little summit. All you need to do is head to the Cross, where you have a good view of a large part of the Massif des Bauges. To return, follow the Creusates Loop, passing near the chalets at Gralette and continuing through the forest; this will take you back to the cross-country ski centre.
From 01/12 to 15/04.
