There was not enough snow so we did the activity without snowshoes but the hike was very pleasant! A good moment ! On the other hand, BE CAREFUL, some information is false, there is no hike that starts at midnight (our activity was scheduled for midnight on the site but the organizer of the activity informed us that this did not exist! And she had place at 6 p.m.) It is also mentioned that during the activity that there is a stop at a gas station, this is not true, we remain in nature throughout.
