General information

Nordic skiing (classic style and skating style ) and snowshoe outings are organized on Saturdays and/or Sundays from December to the end of March, under the guidance of volunteer outing leaders, on track or off-track. In case of lack of snow, the planned outing can be replaced by a hike, depending on the availability of the outing leaders.

A document with the answers to frequently asked questions concerning nordic skiing at the SCIG is accessible here (pdf file).

People wishing to register for their first ever snowshoe outing are invited to participate in an outing rated “facile”, or “moyen” if they have a good general physical condition. Please mention your beginner status to the outing leader when registering.

It also allows access to the cross-country ski trails of the French Jura Massifs (Ain, Jura, Doubs) and entitles you to a 50% discount on the passes in Haute Savoie.
