Snowshoe FAQ's for Private Groups


What should I wear & bring?

- Good walking boots or laced up snow boots (not 'moon boots', they are too big for our snowshoes (sorrels are ok) Not trainers as you will get very cold, wet feet!

- Warm trousers such as thinner salopettes

- layers - t-shirt / wicking top & fleecey jumper and a jacket.  You can get warm so layering is the way to go

- Hat, gloves, sunglasses, suncream

- Small rucksack with some water in and space for a spare jumper

- camera for fab pictures!

 

What do you provide?

We have a adult and children snowshoes with walking poles that we fit to you, a qualified and legally registered Leader, our own minibuses to transport you, a hot drink and home-made cakes from Apeeling Cakes

What is the difference between an Open snowshoe and a Private snowshoe?
You pay for a Private group per group and open snowshoe per person.  It is ideal if there are just a couple of you as it makes it cheaper than a private snowshoe.  A Private snowshoe caters exactly for you and your group so it doesn't matter if you have small children and want us to bring the sledges too or whether you want more of a snowshoe challenge.  We don't mind if there are 2 of you or 20 of you!

 

Can I bring my dog(s)?

Yes absolutely!  Please also make sure you bring water and a bowl for your dog as they can get very thirsty, a treat biscuit or two and a towel to dry them off before they get back in our minibus!  It is up to you to control your dog.

Will we be fit enough?
Yes! We are trained guides who will cater exactly to you.  We have lots of mini breaks to look at the view or to learn about the area - we go at your pace.


Can I bring my small child / baby?
Yes of course - small children that can be carried in a carry pack are welcome.  Please provide a baby seat for the minibus as we only have booster seats.  Remember to wrap them up warm!


How long are the half day sessions?
They are 3.5 hours from pick up to drop off.  This includes a transfer time in the minibus which can be 15 to 30 minutes depending on the chosen area and traffic.


Where do we go snowshoeing?

We choose safe areas that will be suitable for your group but away from the crowds.

Can you pick me up from my accommodation?

Yes!  On a Private group session we pick up and drop off at your accommodation.

 

What if the weather is bad?

If we judge the weather to be too bad or avalanche risk too high, we will contact you as soon as possible to arrange another day or a full refund.
