This ancestral mode of transportation on snow has always been used by the people of the Jura mountains. Traditional snowshoes are made from the wood of the hazelnut tree, lined with leather. Today, snowshoes are mostly made of plastic. After becoming a trend in the 1990s, showshoes are the ideal tools to come closer to the natural habitat of highlanders. Your mountain leader will assist you discover their favorite corners, and teach you practical techniques to maneuver your snowshoes safely and autonomously, within the serenity of the wild life.
With its moderate slopes, the Jura mountains are ideal to practice this activity, famous for its physical and technical qualities, with your families and friends.
