A few marked trails for showshoeing can be found in the lower part of the valley.
Near Les Bossons, the local trail department has designed a loop called “Circuit des glaciers”.
Near the village of Les Bois, one can follow the trail “Boucle des Tines” through larch pines and spruce and discover the ancient glacier moraine which testifies from the presence of Mer de Glace a long time ago.
In Les Houches, the alpine loop on the plateau near Le Prarion offers constant quality snow cover during all winter months. (Access by Prarion gondola). There is another shorter loop around Lac des Chavants, and a marked snowshoeing trail from the hamlet of Coupeau called “sentier des Cerfs”.
From Servoz one can follow the trail called “Sentier des Trois Gouilles” and “Lac Vert”.
There are 2 marked trails around Vallorcine: “Les Granges” and Les Saix Blancs”.
The Chamonix valley tourist offices pubished a guide book and a map showing waymarked walking and snowshoeing trails for the valley and nearby towns of the Pays du Mont Blanc region.
The Compagnie du Mont-Blanc delimits and makes secure snowshoe loops at altitude at the arrival of the Flégère-Index gondolas: Raverettaz and Tête Aubuy loops / Vallorcine gondola car: Aiguillette des Posettes / Montenvers train : 3 loops. They are accessible with the purchase of an AR ticket on these different sites. You should inquire about the opening of these routes.
