As I wrote in the past can travel in Europe even in winter you can rent snowshoes (raquetas) and crampons in many places, and make sections of several days, you can sleep in the huts (should note some open dates), of course it's very dependent on the weather.

Last Saturday we sit in the Pyrenees (vall de boi) took Sunday winter stroller 12 km of the gr11 on 2660 m, La Paz of passed
At first, the weather was bad (the ski resorts were closed) snow and strong winds the temperature dropped to 7 degrees at the highest point, then gets a lovely sunny day like Saturday and the temperature 3 degrees.

Here are some pictures, who released him in Barcelona during the winter that is not only, there is also the Pyrenees.

The rhythm system (mas o menos supermarkets.)

Between 1.5 km/h in deep Virgin snow slipper (with raquetas) feet in the snow (snow depth 2 m)
6 mph for 4 x 4 covered in snow is compressed

Tempo mainly determined by snow mode
The ideal situation is already compressed snow but not get ice (which already need crampons)
I would recommend to go toiilim since areas when the snow is compacted by previous moves faster and comfortable for walking, it's always best to take crampons since sometimes very steep area that froze the raquetas.
