Highlights

  • Experience nature in its primal, untouched state.

  • Experience alpine lakes, lush forest, and blankets of snow among the mountains.

Description

Travel into the depths of the vast backcountry of Lake Tahoe, which is located in the Sierra Nevada.

Grab your backpack, sling it over your shoulder, and explore the snow-blanketed frontiers in the state of Nevada.

The crisp cold air channels through the thick forests and rolls among the towering mountains.

We’ll snowshoe our way in deep powder that cover the stunning landscape. We’ll hike along the rugged ridges, and rest under the shining stars.

Experience the true solitude of nature by leaving behind the hustle and bustle of the urban environment.

Our backpacking will take us on an 8-mile round trip, and once we stop for the evening, we can sit back and relax, watching the moon rise above the distant peaks. 

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the beautiful wilderness of Lake Tahoe for a 2-day winter backpacking trip on snowshoes.

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!
