Description

Are you fascinated by active volcanos, remote landscapes and splitboarding? We have the trip for you. A 10-day expedition to the Chigmit Mountains, an incredible spot for snow lovers and adventurers in the deep white wilderness of Alaska.

Located on the northeastern end of the Aleutian range, these peaks are full of unexplored slopes and descents that will make your splitboarding experience even more rewarding. And there are also active volcanos, as we said before, like the superb Mt. Iliamna (3,053 m) a glacier covered-stratovolcano that ‘exhales’ steam. You can also access Mt. Redoubt (3,108 m), the highest peak of the Aleutian range.

The background is not less impressive. You can admire glaciers (and even enjoy some snowboard descends on them), forests, and the most amazing wildlife, while you practice your favorite sport. And at nighttime, relax at our campsite to prepare for another day of pure splitboarding.

Even though the terrain is wide and open, the remote nature of these spots could be challenging. Therefore, you will need an extensive prior experience in splitboarding and a good physical condition to keep up with the program.

Does it sound good? It will look even better! Send us a request and we will make it happen.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
