Description

Absolutely stunning, the Sierra Nevada mountainous area around Lake Tahoe will take your breath away. Whether you are visiting the area in the summer, spring, fall or winter, you will be amazed at what you see. From the beautiful alpine lake itself, to the peaks and forests, the area is a paradise. And for a half-day, at the Donner Summit Sno-Park, we would like to guide you on a snowshoeing trek through this magnificent area.

This trip is tailored for snowshoeing beginners. So, even if you have never snowshoed before, you can have a great time. Furthermore, throughout the trip, we will focus on instructing you on several important skills and techniques. Some of those techniques include the following.

  • How to ascend, descend and break trail in the snow

  • You will learn how to use and care for snowshoeing equipment

  • The basic skills for winter travel and hiking

  • The geography around Lake Tahoe

No experience is necessary to enjoy this half-day trip. And don’t worry if you don’t have snowshoes and poles because we will supply them for you. And because this trip only lasts a half-day, it is not very physically taxing either. Even kids can enjoy this trip, as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

Snowshoeing around Lake Tahoe, at the Donner Summit Sno-Park is a wonderful experience. To enjoy it for yourself, just send us a request. We look forward to guiding you.

We also offer a half-day, winter mountaineering course in the Lake Tahoe area, which you can enjoy here.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

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.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
