Description

The snowiest place in Alaska, Thompson Pass, is an idyllic spot for splitboarders. This wonderful oasis located in between the Chugach Mountains, has an average snowfall of 552 inches per year, a true record. That, and a strong winter air coming from the Gulf of Alaska make these mountains really steep, allowing you to experience perfect surfaces for some exciting descents!

Its varied terrain and impeccable powder will be a constant on this 7-day adventure, as well as the beauty of Prince William Sound, Valdez, a small town where we will lodge every night. However, you can choose to camp for one or two nights to find more spots for splitboarding.

This is the beauty of this program: you get the chance to change it according to your needs, wants and skills, so you can have an amazing time splitboarding in Thompson Pass. It is also possible to heliski, although it is not included in the price.

Don’t forget that these are challenging terrains, so you will need to be fit and have prior splitboarding experience.

If you are ready, we want to hear from you! Book this trip now to enjoy the privilege of splitboarding in one of the snowiest places on Earth!

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!
