Just an 1.5 drive northwest of Denver, Rocky Mountain National Park is the perfect place for an avalanche and snow safety course.

There is plenty of fun to be had exploring the park either on your skis, splitboard or snowshoes and a lot for us to learn about backcountry safety skills too.

Over the course of our day together, we will learn how to use avalanche safety equipment, which is a highly useful skill for anybody who wants to head out solo or on guided trips farther into the backcountry.

We will also go over how to build snow shelters, which is another highly useful skill to know in the backcountry. By the end of the day, you will be better prepared for future ski touring, snowshoeing or splitboarding exploits.

However, we won’t solely focus on these skills. We’ll also have plenty of time to explore the park, which is home to some of the most stunning scenery in all of the Front Range, as we head from one point to the next.

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
