Zinal, Geneva
Starting from Zinal, we ascend an easy snowshoe trail to an ice cave in the mouth of the Zinal glacier. We can easily explore the entrance to the cave. Some years, we have the option to go deeper inside with an ice axe, crampons & headlamp, but every year it's different.

This is an Oxygène 74 outing
