Join the hottest Haute Route program in the Alps and spend eight days ski touring through the classic mountainsides from Chamonix to Zermatt.
Private and Group
Chamonix is a world-class skiing destination of epic proportion. Its allure invites thousands of skiers, snowboarders, and alpine adventurers of every stripe to its fulfilling slopes and peaks. Zermatt, surrounded by the indomitable walls of the Pennine Alps which include Monte Rosa and the Matterhorn, is just as enticing. Combine these two snowy masterpieces with the Haute Route and you have the ski trip of a lifetime!
Your program places you in the middle of one of the world’s most beautiful and accommodating locations for ski touring. Along the classic Haute Route, you will travel hut-to-hut and dig in to the runs and lines that have made it a top tier destination year after year. The glaciated mountains and pure snow of the highest caliber offers the perfect terrain for a sustained tour through steep couloirs, glaciers, and never-ending runs.
The Haute Route begins in Chamonix, and you will take on the obstacles along your way through France and Switzerland. Along with the excitement of the touring program, you can find yourself beneath some of the most notable peaks in the world. Starting in the shadow of Mont Blanc you will move along the high-mountain route of stunning alpine meadows and evocative towers of rock.
To enhance your program, you will spend your nights between Chamonix and Zermatt in the enchanting mountain refuges of the countryside. We can take advantage of full Alpine immersion and access to truly discover the best of the backcountry. Experience traditional mountain hospitality and expose yourself to the diverse cultures of the Alps.
From the resorts of the tourist destinations to the mountain villages in between, you will see every bit of the European mountainside. We will enjoy delectable food and drink that will make you feel at home when you relax after a long day of skiing. You will have more than a week to cruise the countryside, so you can expect to feel like a local when you culminate your trip. It is a great social experience to share with other like-minded adventurers!
This program is designed for intermediate and advanced skiers with backcountry and touring experience. I high level of fitness is required for the trip, and you can expect six to seven hours of skiing a day. It is a sustained journey, so you should be both physically and mentally prepared for this type of program.
This is one of my favorite places to ski on the planet, with good reason, and the Haute Route is an amazing way to experience it in a special, unforgettable way. I will ensure you take on the thrilling challenges in a safe, fun, and satisfying program that you will talk about long after you hang up your skis.
I also have a private guided skiing option for anyone who wants a less-committed adventure in the Alps. Let me know what you had in mind for your program, and I would be happy to make your dream a reality.

Fantastic coaching and an incredible experience! Thank you Gauthier for helping to make it happen. We’ll stay in touch for future excursions
This was an adventure of a lifetime. Guillaume was an awesome guide that tailored the experience to our skills. He was personable and we had so much fun. The team is professional, punctual, and communicative! Loved our experience!
It was a great climbing day on almost a vertical rock about 70 meters high. Willy is the best guide I ever met in my life, and without him I wouldn't make it.
Rebecca and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with Stephane and his wife. They were amazing guides.
We had a great experience with Willy Viez in Wallonie. He shared a lot of useful knowledge with us about alpine rock climbing, especially about lead climbing. His pointers and real life examples turned out to be essential on the following day when we tried to climb an easy route on our own (no quick draws were left behind). Willy assisted us in a way that resulted in great personal accomplishments for the day and he surely helped us to feel more at ease around real rocks. We are very happy with this adventure that has a long lasting after effect.
Really enjoyed our day rock climbing in Les Calanques. Great routes and our guide was prepared, very flexible in terms of what we’d like to do and which levels he could do with us. The communication beforehand was a little unclear since I expected an email and didn’t quite get that I’d have to access the web application of explore share. Nothing major, just could be explained clearer in the email.

We had a great day with Ivan in Fontainebleau. He was so knowledgeable about the area and its history, and about warming up for effective climbing. We had a lot of fun and climbed some very cool boulders despite the very cold weather.
My daughter has had a fantastic time at with the horses this week, perfectly organised by Explore-share. We are so grateful to Gauthier for making it all a fantastic experience, thank you!! We will be back.
I booked a private shinrin yoku session with Explore-Share, but unfortunately their guide was injured and couldn't do it. Gauthier had been very helpful, quick to communicate and agreed to work with another guide he'd never met. All went well. My first forest bath guided by Magda was powerful and I appreciated the experience so much. She was calm, reassuring, and led all the invitations smoothly and sensitively. An eye-opening experience that will be fondly remembered.
The lift to the via ferrata des Evettes was closed so we did the via ferrata de curalla in Passy. Was a great day!
Our guide, Claire, was very friendly, knowing and responsive and helped us to dive into an outdoor bouldring for the first time - exactly what we were looking for

Yesterday was amazing. Olivier is a world class climber and has a natural ability to quickly assess my level and coach me to exceed what I thought I could do. He was very focused on making sure I was safe. Climbing with Olivier yesterday has had a deep impact on my life as a climber. An excellent climbing guide!
