Cervinia Ski, Backcountry skiing from Breuil Cervinia

First time for us backcountry with guide. Nicolas really made the best of it despite difficult spring conditions with only little snow left on the slopes. He even found some powder for us. He is really nice company too. Booking was smooth too with fast responses from both admin and our guide Nicolas.

Porta Nera ski touring trip in Cervinia

Loved the day out, the guide (Nicholas) was knowledgeable and we felt very safe in his hands. It was our first time ski touring and overall it was a superb experience. We will certainly be doing more in the future! The communication was also excellent. Silvia was in contact with us through email and WhatsApp and it was very easy to ask questions.

Aosta Valley Guided Backcountry Skiing Trips

We had a great weekend skiing with Elis close to Valgrisenche. We stayed in a really nice mountain hotel from which lots of tours were accessible. Food and welcome was great. Elis is a great guide, kind and always cheerful, he makes sure you feel safe and have a great tour. Sun was out, snow wasn't amazing but then you're in Italy so ambiance makes up for it. Highly recommended!

Courmayeur Guided Backcountry Skiing trips

Although the weather wasn't the best on the day of our backcountry skiing trip, it was still the highlight of our stay in Courmayeur. Alberto was very helpful and overall an excellent guide. We highly recommend Alberto for any one in need of a backcountry skiing guide in Courmayeur.

4-day Ski Mountaineering Course in the Aosta Valley

We had wonderful days and a lot fun. All arrangments were perfect and easy! Our guide Paolo has been not only an excellent mountain and skiing guide but also he is very nice and empatic person who shared his love and knowledge of the Aosta valley! Wonderful days and skitouring, well organised, we will come again!

Monte Rosa, guided freeride ski

I just wanted to thank you very much for all the help in the difficult snow conditions.  The primary aim of teaching Digby and reminding me of avalanche protocols and about skinning have been fully achieved.  You made it all fund, clear and precise. Too bad we had poor conditions, but we still found some reasonable snow and mashed an awesome couloir, so we did really well considering. So thank you very much and only sorry that we could not make full use of you for the full five days.

1+ day Ski touring on Adamello Glacier (Italy)

We very much appreciated Giorgio’s professionalism and knowledge of the Adamello area. Giorgio was very thorough with his directions and making sure we were all safe. I had a 17 and 23 year old with me and he gave me a lot of confidence with his skills without being patronizing. We all had a great day ski-touring and the descent of Pisgana glacier was really exciting. Happy to recommend him for or offer other intel.

We had a fantastic day with Alesandro in La Thuile. It had not snowed much for over 3 weeks, so he recommended that we go Ski Touring, and we managed to find fresh tracks. Could not have gone better!

Freeride skiing day trips in Passo Tonale, Adamello Range

The tour to the Pisgana glacier was great, even though the snow conditions were icy & challenging. We’d definitely recommend Renzo, the guide, and the Explore Share website. The costs were v.competitive and an incentive to book. The only drawback was the website made it difficult to swop some details like email addresses (e.g. for sending photos). Anyway, we intend using the service & guide again next time we’re in Passo Tonale!

Freeride skiing day trips in Passo Tonale, Adamello Range

We booked the "Freeride skiing day trips in Passo Tonale, Adamello Range" through Explore-Share.com The booking procedure was very easy and our mountain guide Renzo took us on 2 perfect freeriding days, finding untouched powder even after 1 week of last snowfall. If we go back to Passo Tonale for freeride skiing we would definetly go with Renzo again.

Ski touring around Gran Paradiso

We had a great time with Andrea! It’s quite cool to go in the mountains with someone your age. Andrea is one of the youngest Italian guides but already has a lot of experience and you can tell it once up there. We felt very safe all the way, he took us to some really nice lines and we even enjoyed some powder. He was always adapting to the rhythm of the team. The views around Val d’Aoste are amazing and the great food and service in the huts made the trip very special. Andrea knows everyone so we even enjoyed special treatment… (that tiramisu was amazing…)We will come back! There is a lot more to discover around there.

Le tour avec Andrea s'est très bien passé. Il est vraiment très sympa et détendu. Il adaptait bien les sorties en fonction du niveau et de la forme groupe. C'était super de découvrir le Val d'Aoste avec lui car c'est sa région. On a donc pu en apprendre beaucoup au sujet du coin et il savait où aller chercher la bonne neige. Top recommandation merci ! Il nous a même invité chez lui en fin trip pour une pâte et un coup d'alcool d'Aravis. Du guide 6 étoiles, en somme ;-)

We had a fantastic day with Elis doing ski touring in the Aosta Valley. He was easy-going, yet very professional, and had a good knowledge of the area. He made safe route choices on a day with considerable avalanche risk and shared some nice tips and tricks along the way. He was able to communicate well in both Italian, French and English. We would not hesitate with using him for future trips

Maira Valley ski touring

I've spent 5 days with a group of friends in Valle Maira accompanied by Andrea, our guide for the trip. He is young , cheerful, flexible, very good at card games and has an excellent knowledge of the region. It was my first time skiing in Italy and I've been seduced by the authenticity of the mountain villages, the amazing sceneries and the local gastronomy : you get both quality and quantity at a very decent price! If you are looking for quiet moments away from the crowd this is definitely the right place to go as this region is far less touristy than Valle Aosta.

Maira Valley ski touring

The five of us explored Valle Maira with our guide Andrea during four days, which was a truly refreshing experience because the area is so wild. There's no ski resorts around, only isolated stone villages inhabited by a couple of die-hards living away from it all, and beautiful treks all around. Great scenery. We didn't see more than 10 fellow skiers around. The food is great too, and there's plenty of it. We also went to France for one day. As to Andrea, whom i knew from a previous trek, he was flexible and careful as always. A great experience!

Maira Valley ski touring

With 5 friends (all aged ~35) , we decided to go on a 5 day hut-to-hut ski trip in Piedmont - Italy. Not only was the place very typical & beautiful, it is also a great way to spend some time “among men”, off the families and the heaps of daily hassle that go along with it. And also good to do some tougher challenges you could never do when going on a family trip. Andrea led us to some very unique places, the “rifugio” in Italy are divine, you are always welcomed with great attention and also great food. Expect the 6 meal dish even in a hut! An experience I will reiterate, if possible on a yearly basis, to empty my head and refresh my mind.

Ski touring around Gran Paradiso

Andrea nous a guidé jusqu'à la pointe de la pierre surplombant Aoste. Nous avons tous été super satisfaits de ce choix: le panorama sur les Alpes y est fantastique et Andrea nous a trouvé de la bonne neige malgré les conditions très sèches des jours précédents. En plus, Andrea a parfaitement géré les differences de niveau du groupe en donnant des bons conseils techniques. Pour finir, Andrea est très sympa et flexible et est un vrai passionné de sa région et de sa culture montagnarde. Merci a lui et a Explore-Share pour ce moment memorable!

Ski touring around Gran Paradiso

Ces deux journées ont été incroyables! C'était génial ! Il y avait quelques différences de niveau au sein de notre groupe (un skieur n'avait jamais mis de peaux avant ce trip) et Andrea s'est adapté au groupe. Hyper sympa, toujours à l'écoute, très pro..bref, je retournerai en montagne avec lui. D'autant plus qu'il connait ces vallées par coeur, ça se voit qu'il prend du plaisir à faire découvrir ce vrai coin de paradis. Un vrai ambassadeur du val d'Aoste! Il nous faisait rêver en nous expliquant les possibilités infinies de rando dans la région et j'ai déjà prévu de retourner explorer ces montagnes en sa compagnie.

Aosta Valley Guided Backcountry Skiing Trips

We had a very exciting trip in Valle d’Aosta with Elis. A first day of free-riding for warming up, followed by three days of ski-touring in the beautiful valleys between Courmayeur and Aosta… Being also in contact with other guides, Elis has been able to find the best spots considering the changing weather and the quality of the snow. He is always keen to share his knowledge of the mountain and of the Valle d’Aosta’s back-country, where he grew up. Also therefore, we had a lot of pleasure in sharing with him well deserved meals at very nice places he would recommend… I would highly recommend him for discovering this region.

Aosta Valley Guided Backcountry Skiing Trips

Val d'Aoste is such a fantastic destination for skitouring. Overlooked by many, it offers stunning valleys to explore as you pass one charming village after another up a mountain road. Elis was the perfect guide to explore his native backcountry: deep local knowledge allows him to make the best of any weather and snow conditions - and book the best table for a well-deserved recovery and some fine Italian pasta. He's a super nice, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide I would highly recommend

Elis took us to various places around Aosta for four days. We had varying weather conditions and he was able to navigate those and get us to great snow every day even though there hadn't been a snow fall in 10 days. The routes were adjusted to the team's abilities and he took good care of us and the motivation of the troops, in particular in light of my fear of heights. Given his excellent knowledge of the region, Elis was spot on in his choices of places in terms of scenery, wilderness and isolation from any nuisance. He is also a fantastic companion with whom we enjoyed endless meals, espresso's and drinks. I'd highly recommend him.

Ski touring and freeride in Chamonix

De magnifiques journées, parfaitement organisées par Romain. Une parfaite connaissance des massifs de Chamonix pour trouver des itinéraires originaux, adaptés aux participants. Un vrai talent pour trouver les belles pentes et la bonne neige. Après la très belle expérience Alpinisme avec Romain quelques mois auparavant (Triangle du Tacul ), de nouveaux moments mémorables en ski free ride sur le versant italien et français de l'aiguille du midi et du Mont Blanc.
