Description

Join me on this 8-day off-piste skiing adventure in the Alps! Depending on your wishes, we can start this program anywhere: from Andermatt to Zermatt and from Verbier to Chamonix.

This is just a sample of an 8-day off-piste skiing program in the Alps. Please keep in mind that we can adapt it according to your expectations and skills.

If you choose to start from Chamonix, our meeting point will be Hotel L'Arve, where we will review all the information and check our equipment. On our second day together, we will start our adventure and ski the famous Vallee Blanche. Surrounded by the most fantastic mountains in Europe, the Vallee Blanche is the perfect place to start our 8-day ski touring trip!

During the next few days, we will explore some of the best off-piste terrain in the Alps. We will ski on Rosablanche, in the Swiss Pennine Alps, and the off-piste terrain in Grand Montets, one of the most popular ski resorts in Chamonix. But please make sure you check out the more detailed itinerary below to get a better idea of the amazing 8 days we'll spend together in the Alps.

Our schedule will be flexible. Our main priority is to go where the snow is good! Keep in mind, however, that all participants need to be in excellent physical condition. 

So if you are ready for this adventure, just request to book this trip and let's get started! I guarantee an incredible 8 days in some of the most iconic spots in the Alps. 

And if you're into ski touring, you can also check out my Haute Route ski traverse from Chamonix to Zermatt!.

This was a great trip and Explore Share made finding the right trip super easy. Our guide was personable, extremely knowledgeable, and experienced and willing to teach us the skills we would have needed to climb the Matterhorn. Unfortunatly, the conditions were not right to climb so our guide recemmended another trip which was still a great experience and lots of fun.

Very user friendly platform with timely responses from Explore Share representatives. The trip itself with Tom from Alps Adventures was awesome and ensure that we had an experience that was 100% what we wanted. Recommend both the platform and the guide. Thanks to all for arranging and delivering so well.

I had am amazing time during the 1-day off-piste training course at Hoch-Ybrig. Urs, our main mountain guide, was very helpful in answering my queries before the course, and Lupe from explore-share was helpful in selecting the course. We had 3 groups under Urs, Mario and Patrick, and I was in the group with Patrick. He gave us a lot of nice tips and individualized video analysis. He made a special effort to convey everything in English, since I don't know German. All the participants were very helpful and friendly too! The course is good value for money as skis are included for the weekend in the course price.
