DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
Gleaming! This is the meaning of the name Laqlouq, the gleam of the year-round snows!
Laqlouq is a winter resort, encircled by jagged ridges and terraces bearing thousands of trees. In addition to alpine skiing, Laqlouq is also one of the best resorts suited for cross-country skiing. Mostly visited by families, Laqlouq had its first ski lift installed in 1958, followed by major enhancements to the slopes and the creation of a (very) qualified ski school.
As usual, there will be two levels of difficulty.
Level 3: About 6 KM (3 hours) An easy walk, with very light ascents and descents. It is ideal for picture taking. It will be a great snowshoeing session and a lovely day with the group.
Level 5: About 10 KM (3.5 hours) It is a moderate walk with long ascents, but not steep ones. This level is strictly for advanced walkers; long delay is not an option.
You will be able to see rare views particular to this altitude terrain. The scenery is great! Changes from this stage, you will pass through white peaks, giving the impression of being in the sky.
