Chatel snow shoeing for a non downhill skier

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I'm arranging a short break for a few friends in early March and have access to my sister's apartment in Chatel. One person doesn't want to do downhill skiing but would be interested in snow shoeing /cross country skiiing or other activities. I think there are some trails but if it's just one person they would need to be part of an arranged group so they aren't by themselves all day. Does anyone know if anyone offers guiding for snow shoeing in Chatel? Or any recommendations for a resort which would have more group activities for an active non downhill skier to join? Thanks

Welcome to SHs, @LadyDi. I can't answer your question about Chatel but as an alternative, Les Saisies has masses of opportunities for guided snow-shoeing at all levels of strenuousness, and excellent XC skiing - but if your friend hasn't done XC before, it's best to take lessons, unless they just want to shuffle round a flat track which is a bit pointless - snow shoeing much better. But if you have a free apartment in Chatel, makes sense to go there!

@LadyDi,
There is a lovely road up to Super Chatel from Chatel village.
Also from Pre La Joux there are a couple of nice routes.
There is a cross country skiing centre with different circuits at La Chapelle, from where you can also snow shoe.
The cross country circuits have grooves for classic and flats for skating.
There is an ESF where you can also get lessons.

Snowshoeing in Chatel offers the incomparable advantage of meeting your skiing buddies at the semi-mythical Chalet de Théo for lunch. Madeye-Smiley

@Ozboy, there's no piste but if the snow cover is good you can go down the road from Barbossine midstation and it's only a short walk up hill. I've also done it from below the off piste near Mouet and bush whacking through the trees. (Gets nice spring snow but has been known to slide).

If you know the right route it might be easier (I don't!)
