Snow shoes hike in the Vosges
Snow shoes are a really great instrument to walk easily on the snow!! You can go where nobody else could go without going to deep in the snow! This kind of hike is common in the Vosges next to the cross country ski and enables you to climb in a kind of paths that are never been used before!
Walking or skiing around Le Bonhomme, Alsace
The first time I visited Le Bonhomme was in February 1990. A week of long walks, with little snow. We stayed at La Ferme Auberge du Brézouard. In 1995, I spent one night to break my journey from Swiss to Belgium. In 2005, I passed to rent snow material and to go to 'Le Lac Blanc' (Orbey).
Staying around Le Bonhomme is a good solution to enjoy from the nature and calm and the many walk/cross-country skiing possibilities: Col des Bagenelles, Col du Bonhomme, Tête de Faux, Col du Calvaire. But avoid the village concentrated around the national road N415, streaming many cars and trucks.
In winter, consider walking with snowshoes, cross-country skiing or skiing at Le Lac Blanc. If there is no snow, enjoy walking or going to the amusement park Parc d'Aventures du Lac Blanc (April-October, +33 3 89 71 28 72).
