Val d’Aran is located in the Lérida province of Catalonia and belongs to the Pyrenees. It is the ideal spot for winter sports such as snowboarding. On this 2-day introductory off piste snowboarding course in Val d’Aran you will learn everything you need to know to enjoy this exhilarating sport!
During this course, you will learn about climbing snowed slopes and the proper use of snowboarding equipment. In addition, this course includes lessons about reading snow conditions and some avalanche training. You will learn how to use a transceiver, shovel and probe after an avalanche. The main purpose of the course is to provide you with all the necessary tools to go down backcountry slopes safely. Also, take into account that it will be taught in Spanish.
Although this is an introductory course, it is important to have a good fitness level to be a part of it. Some prior background knowledge in mountaineering will make this course much more enjoyable for you. Also, if you want to spend more days on this program, all you have to do is let me know.
Snowboarding is my passion and I would love to share it with you. Send your request and book this trip now. I’m sure you will have a great experience.
In this area, I also offer more advanced splitboarding, heliboarding and ski touring programs. Take a look at them!

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
