What people are saying about this trip



Spot on out of my expectations. Nice and very talented guide. Highly recommended.



We overall really enjoyed this group trip in the backcountry around Val Thorens, however, the guide could've been a bit more responsive to our ability level and communicated better (we mentioned we are mixed abilities and we were snowboarders - him a skier), e.g., due to a mishap with a binding the group got separated as the guide just rode on and hadn't communicated where to go.



Had a phenomenal day with our guide Mathis out in Val Thorens backcountry. It was a good mix of using the lifts to gain altitude, ski down and then skin up. Mathis adjusted the skiing to the groups level, kept a good pace and fun to spend the day with. Would have appreciated earlier communications about when and where to meet and what to bring. Overall, a great day. Definitely worth it!



Great service by explore share. Our guide, Fred, gave us a fantastic day. Totally wild adventure that would be impossible on our own. I’m really impressed. Thank you very much.



Our guide Valerie was amazing. She knows the mountain extremely well and was able to take us to one run after another with fresh powder and first tracks. She pushed us hard, but also knew our limits. I highly recommend her! (And she is also an incredible and accomplished snowboarder).
