When it comes to snow sports, the Eastern Sierra is a tough place to beat. Its name refers to the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada. It is home to breathtaking parts of Yosemite National Park, Mono Lake, Mammoth Lakes, June Mountain, and a plethora of other high profile destinations You could spend a lifetime enjoying the never-ending runs and scenic lines of these mountains, valleys, and countryside.

Your program blends instruction with entertainment, putting you on track for a career of backcountry splendor beyond Mammoth. Away from the crowds and lift lines, we will explore the fundamentals of ski touring and the world off-piste.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.
