IglooOn a Thursday evening why not live like the Inuit for the night?

Your adventure begins with a 6pm departure from Montchavin. You are heading for the high mountains above Aime. Once there it’s a 60 minute snow shoe trek to your igloo. After a warming aperitif and settling into your igloo it’s off to a local restaurant for a typical Savoyard repas. A warm sleeping bag and comfortable mattress awaits you for a night in your igloo.

In the morning there is a snow shoe trek exploring the local environs with a knowledgeable local guide before transferring back to Montchavin for 11am.

Igloos sleep two and the maximum group size is eight people. The cost is 100 Euros per person. Book via the Evolution2 office in Les Coches or Montchavin.

PS Remember the strapline of the Inuit Lottery is, of course, “You have to be Inuit to win it”. I’ll get my coat.

Pre Dinner Drinks CanapesThere are, of course, two tribes in the mountains. And one of them is hiding in plain sight.

Skiers and snowboarders? Not even close. They are one tribe certainly. The second?

The Seniors; older people that have a love of the mountains in winter, but no longer ski and so come to snowshoe, chill and enjoy all that the mountains can offer in winter.

Not for them the 7am alarm call, hurried breakfast, boot room carnage and a minibus transfer to 9am ski school. It’s a lot more leisurely. Time for a second croissant and a coffee refill? Bien Sur.

Seniors are still out by 10am though for a morning snow shoe walk, but the best seat in the mountain restaurant? Taken by the seniors at 11.50am. Complimentary digestive? Rude not to.

And so, it continues. As skiers chase last lifts for home, the seniors are in the spa, winding down after an exhausting day. A power nap follows before drinks and dinner sometime later.

They have a brilliant time – I know I am one when I’m not skiing – but the best thing of all?

You are completely invisible to all except other seniors.
