Unfeasible experience

It is very easy to walk with them and after the experience of sinking into the snow and not being able to get out of so much that there was, it is a pleasure to be able to walk freely without fear of sinking. You can enter the forest and make your own path, walk along the frozen river and rest next to a bonfire ... a beautiful excursion
