Great snowshoeing in the Dauphiné and in Vallorcine

We were extremely lucky to have a full week of blue skies and sunshine for our Val Clarée Snowshoeing. Having siad that, Briançon (the nearest town) boasts 300 sunny days a year so I suppose that's how it's going to be but nevertheless we felt that such conditions in early January were a real treat. 
The snow was good too and we just had a blast!

Back in Vallorcine for a few days conditions are also very good and until today we had blue skies. But now it's snowing quite heavily which is no bad thing as will cover up all the old ski and snowshoe tracks and we can start all over again!!
