1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr




  • Enjoy the stunning scenery of Rocky Mountain National Park.
  • Learn necessary skills for enjoying winter sports in the backcountry.
  • Take advantage of the great skiing, snowshoeing and splitboarding conditions.


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.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and informative 1-day avalanche and snow travel safety course in Rocky Mountain National Park!

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
