Raquetas de nieve
Snow raquets are a method of walking over snow covered ground and are as ancient as the first populations of these territories. Bascially they are an arch shaped hoop with a frame into which you place your foot to give a central support. The shape of the racket allows you to cover a large area of ground surface so that you don’t sink in the snow. The rackets were originally made of wood but these days they have been replaced by a synthetic material that is more lightweight and waterproof.
The design of the racket means you walk with your legs slightly apart, it is relatively easy to walk with them and only requires a few words of instruction to get you going and to avoid stumbles and obstacles as well as helping you to avoid any unnecessary muscle aches afterwards. Walking with snow rackets means you can go along flat mountain routes in the winter which would not be feasible to transit at any other time of the year, thus giving you privileged mountain views. The ski school provides qualified instructors that not only teach you how to use the rackets but will guide you along the more splendid snow covered routes that are easy to follow.
