Snowshoeing : Les Combes en famille

Snowshoeing : Les Combes en famille

Description

This hike has been designed to make your children and adults move forward in a playful way, allowing everyone to discover nature while having fun. Challenges and games: a great way to motivate yourself and enjoy our beautiful environment.

This walk is like a game :
1) Ice rink roof, Cascade de la Fare, Col du Couard.
2) This old dwelling near the Flumet stream was used : to the field warden to watch the forest and take shelter, to shelter the tools of the fields, used water power and is an old mill.
3) As you make your way through the forest, try to recognise the tracks of the squirrel.
An inhabitant that is very often found in the undergrowth in winter, because it hides under the branches at night or on bad weather days, the roe deer, this is what its tracks look like that you can see in the forest.
Two types of hares inhabit the mountain in winter. One is brown and the other carries the Arctic gene: the mountain hare. It is grey-brown in summer and white in winter. This camouflages it from predators such as foxes and wolves. It is very discreet and moves around at night. The top of its ears remain black.
4) You are surrounded by hardwoods...
the beech trees, which in our regions are called fayard, our firewood, so the origin of the word would come from fire from elsewhere. The path can be dug in places, these signs of life speak to you...winter is hard for the different species, it is cold, nature is covered in snow, so you have to go and look for food under the depth of the snow, scratch to the ground to find bulbs, seeds, faines...wild boar, deer, roe deer and chamois can do this.
5) Observe the bark of some shrubs, it is sometimes nibbled. Several species are responsible for this!
Hare and roe deer, sometimes stag and chamois...not easy to know who is involved...so just observe the height of the mark, a good indicator...the stag being higher than the roe deer which will be higher than the hare...

Reception complements

All rubbish must be brought back by the hikers. This rule applies along the trail. The forest environment must be preserved, avoid cutting branches or mutilating them.

Tips:
- Make sure that snow does not get into your shoes by using gaiters.
-While snowshoeing:
- Remember to release the heel of the snowshoe! For your information, the back of the foot is sometimes tied up when going downhill when there is a lot of snow.
- Go with poles, essential for balance.
- Don't hesitate to tap your snowshoe with the pole from time to time, it allows to remove some of the snow and thus to lighten your step.
- Foggy glasses are usually a good indicator of too much body heat or too rapid a change in body heat. If this happens, you can reduce your speed, the number of layers of clothing or simply ventilate by allowing cool air to enter under your windbreaker.
