By Monday, 19 December 2022 08:00

Snowshoeing becomes gourmet in La Thuile in Italy's Aosta Valley, with the thrill of high- altitude fine dining. 

Mountain cuisine on snowshoes

When snowshoeing becomes gourmet, then those glorious days spent in the snow take on a whole new meaning. In La Thuile, the wild side of Mont Blanc, with its silences and snowy landscapes, you can enjoy some of Italy’s most extraordinary views, combining the soothing experience of snowshoeing with the flavours of mountain cuisine.

Gastronomic programmes for non-skiers
