What people are saying about Splitboarding |



Our guide Valerie was amazing. She knows the mountain extremely well and was able to take us to one run after another with fresh powder and first tracks. She pushed us hard, but also knew our limits. I highly recommend her! (And she is also an incredible and accomplished snowboarder).



Explore share did very good job in finding a mountain guide group for me in Val Thorens. Smooth and quick communication.



We had a private splitboard tour with Carine. Carine was a great guide and she took us to cool places in Val Thores and Orelle. The freerides were amazing. What a great day trip. We really appreciate flexibility of Maison des Guides who changed the date of our trip to another day because of bad weather on the day when we had booked.



Andre was an outstanding guide and I really enjoyed my glacier adventure! It was really amazing to be in the mountains where we were the only tracks in the snow. In addition to planning a trip that was beautiful and at the perfect difficulty level, he gave me pointers to improve my skiing and backcountry skills. I would definitely book another trip if I come back!



Great service by explore share. Our guide, Fred, gave us a fantastic day. Totally wild adventure that would be impossible on our own. I’m really impressed. Thank you very much.
