Not specified


8 Days

Jan, Feb




This 8-day trip provides so much more than a normal ski adventure: you will be able to enjoy the full experience of skiing on the Alps and savoring the italian culture of food, wine and traditions in a secluded corner of the Cottian Alps.

Val Maira offers a wide range of routes for all ski levels, good snow most of the year, beautiful scenery, and great food and wine to finish the day. We will start the first day climbing to Rifugio di Viviere with our skis, where we will be based for the first five days. In the vicinity of this hut we will experience different climbs, mountains and ski descents every day, of which our highest one will be Monte Ciaslaràs at 3002m. We have over 100 classic itineraries here that can be adapted to weather, group ski level and interests. Some of the options include Bric Boscasso (2589 m), Passo della Gardetta (2440 m) and Auto Vallonasso (2883 m).

In addition, every night you will be able to taste the amazing wines of Piemonte and Castelmagno with another traditional food of the region: cheese. Combined in a good Risotto, you will wonder why you have never finished your skiing days like this before.

If you are looking for a different ski experience, look no more. I ensure you this will be a trip you will never forget. Send your request! It will be a pleasure for me to be your guide in Val Maira.

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.
