Guided Snowshoe Route in Port of Cotos
Characteristics of snowshoe routes.
Snowshoes allow us to progress through virgin snow, much more easily than if we only did it with boots. The increase in the support surface prevents the legs from sinking under the snow.
In hard snow, the metal tips of the sole are nailed, avoiding the
The canes help us to push ourselves, improve our balance during
the march, and also allow us to exercise the muscles of the trunk and arms.
It is an activity without technical difficulty where the canes provide us with a balance reinforcement. Wer organizes tours from the train station of Cotos. To see advice on clothing, go to the Hiking section.
Duration and difficulty of the routes.
The routes usually last between 2 and 4 hours depending on the interest of the group, sometimes we make whole-day routes with stop to eat if the group requests it.
In open or free registration activities, with “large” groups (from 20 people), we try to offer two alternatives, if we have several monitors continue with a harder route, or smooth the completion. At that time the group is divided and in this way everyone finishes a route that approximates their preferences, both those who want a longer or longer route, and those who want a less demanding route. It is not always possible to offer these alternatives.
The tours are made through the Sierra de Guadarrama. Ascent to the Peñalara peak, Loma del Norwegian in the direction of Bola, Siete Picos, Valdesquí, etc.
When the snow level allows, we begin the routes through lower areas, starting from Camorritos, La Barranca, Hospital de la Fuenfría, etc. In case of having a very adverse meteorology, with blizzard in the high areas, we look for routes with the forest shelter.
