  • Really a dream for snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing great, ski/snowboard of nature to love limited consultation is possible, but also that in some areas. Nothing prepared, pure nature, an incomprehensible silence and everywhere you can to discover animals. There are huts, the one to the Cook and warm up can use. Highly recommended!
