Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Dec
Spread across several countries, the Alps are Europe’s most famous and visually spectacular mountain range.
Courmayeur in Italy and Vallee Blanche in France provide some of the best off-piste skiing conditions one could hope for.
We will spend two days exploring off-piste areas in the wonderful Courmayeur region and on the third day we will access Vallee Blanche for some amazing freeriding.
With new cable cars to access the high altitudes, we can set off fresh to discover some new and unspoilt terrain.
This trip is geared towards those comfortable on red slopes and who have previous off-piste experience. You need to have a decent level of fitness to get the most out of these 3 thrilling days.
I operate these trips in small groups, maximum 8 people, so as to assure your safety and generate a great group vibe.
I have been exploring these mountains in every way possible for many years and I know them intimately, I’m excited to share my knowledge with you.
On the first day we will meet at the Courmayeur resort, get our ski passes and organise everything. Then we will hit the slopes and head to Dolonne Canal for some freeriding.
On the second day after meeting for a coffee, we will take the lift to its highest point on the ARP gondola, there are no on-piste sections here! For lunch we will return to the Courmayeur resort and then later head off-piste again to the Youla area.
For our final day we will take the cable car to 3452m where we will enjoy a coffee and acclimitise! Then we have a long descent down Vallee Blanche with photo opportuities and a tasty beer awaiting to reward us at the bottom.
Sign up now if you want to experience this unforgettable trip freeriding in the alps, some of the best off-piste conditions await you along with an experienced guide!
If you only have one day to explore then join me on this great day of freeriding in Valle Blanche where we will escape the crowds and head into nature! If this region is excites you but instead you’d prefer a hike then consider this 2-day ascent of Mont Blanc, the highets peak in the Alps!

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Italy
I like the simple life and I love searching for environments where climbing has a genuine taste.I did various jobs, all interesting but they always lacked something, then a season in Chamonix opened my eyes; I never looked back and I haven’t sat at a desk ever since.
I was born in Parma in 1978, I started climbing at the age of 14; my home is in Verona, but it is much more true to say that I live across the Alps, on the Dolomites for climbing and on Mont Blanc for big climbs and skiing.
I share my time between the Mountain Guide activity and the climbing experiences around the world.
One of the best starting points for each experience is enthusiasm and curiosity that I seek and refine every time I climb a mountain. I love the technical gesture of climbing, the feeling of freedom and the opportunity to travel, learning about different cultures and different ways of thinking.
Ice picks and crampons are my mates up in the mountains. I have a soft spot for the ways that fight tooth and nail, when you leave your watch home because the stars will tell you when it is time to open your sleeping bag and the frost in the morning will tell you when it is time to start moving again.
To me, the snow is like gold, it makes me happy and carefree. For this reason during winter I spend much of my time on skis in pursuit of thrills: speed, fresh snow under your skis and a surfing wave in my mind.
The best part of my job ... definitely helping people to spend their time outdoors with quality and satisfaction.

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!
