Christmas snow shoeing in France
Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of commerce overload over the festive season?
It's fun to be with like-minded people on holiday - good walking - good eating - good company - sounds the perfect break.
The obvious snow holiday is of course to slap on the planks or the surf board and zip down hill in your pretty resort.
What your hosts - spacebetween are very pleased to offer are snow holidays, just a stone's throw from the French Riviera, where you can pad around in the wilds on snow shoes, and enjoy both views down to the Med, and up to the massif of the Mercantour.
These holidays start over the Christmas and New Year period and then continue until the end of March. However with mountains up to over 3000m there is snow (even now as I type) on high level walks until the summer.
Snow shoeing is quite strenuous as an exercise but does not require any great skill - with a bit of "oomph" in your thighs - it takes a tiny amount of time to master your "tennis rackets! - no they are not really like that these days!! - and be proficient.
What is then a delight is to put your "heels" on to help you up hill, and then "yay" attach the back of your shoes for some downhill "pfloofing" - a spacebetween trademark word - if not registered!
For the inexperienced, this is running down hill in powder like a maniac and then diving over!
What could be more fun!!!
Fly to Nice and let spacebetween take the strain!!
