There are many great places to try out your snowshoes. Email Spanish Highs Mountain Guides for suggestions in the Sierra Nevada. Once you feel comfortable, you might like to try out a new hiking trail.
Any time you want during December to May (if there are at least 4 inches snow on the ground)! Snowshoeing is a great activity by itself or combined with other outdoor pursuits like winter camping, backcountry snowboarding and skiing, sledding, or running. When you have a pair of snowshoes, there are no more excuses for not getting out and enjoying winter.
The good news is that anyone who can walk can go snowshoeing. From young kids to senior citizens. Depending on your age and weight range there will be a shoe that will fit your specific needs.
We have snowshoes available from well know makes such as Tubbs, Salomen and Camp. Hire costs are included in the tour guided prices.
There is no finer place to enjoy a day’s snowshoeing after recent snowfall than above Puente Palo in the pine forests of the Alpujarras. Last week we were privileged to enjoy the company of a family from the USA, as we guided them on a days snowshoeing…
For winter we have some new locations, far away from anybody else including some new forests accessible only by 4WD vehicles. These should give superb snowshoeing from mid-December until end of May. We tried them out last year and it’s now time to launch!
Recollections of a hard snowshoeing trek to and from the Poqueira hut in Spain’s Sierra Nevada mountains in difficult snow conditions. At times we had blizzard conditions which made it an epic and, at times, very testing journey.
