The weather for Sunday is looking decent and with a fresh covering of snow, this is a good opportunity to get in a snowshoe hike before it all melts. I propose a trip to Les Mosses, easily accessible from Lausanne and allowing for a late start. Snowshoes are available for hire from many outdoor shops in Lausanne, such as Baechli at Avenue d’Ouchy 6.

1. Parameters - a mere 8 kms in length, with 400m of elevation gain and descent taking around four hours in total.

2. Timetable - Meet at 11.45am in Protected content

4. Weather - around freezing at the higher levels

5. Bring - Snow shoes, hiking boots with good waterproofing, hiking poles, packed lunch, sunscreen, two litres of water, warm clothes

6. Car pooling - I suggest each passenger contributes based on 8 centimes per km, as well as parking costs.

7. Responsibility - By signing up for this hike, you accept full personal responsibility for your own safety.
