ISTA partners with

Explore-Share is a specialized website created by two Belgian friends, Nicolas Vandepaer and Gauthier Poncelet, to connect people with mountain guides from all over the world. It allows ski, touring and mountaineering fans to contact guides directly to organize a trip.

“It’s complicated when you travel outside of mountain towns to find a good guide, even though there are many, explains Gauthier. We wanted to make life easier for you and for guides by creating a platform that allows you to find them easily, with a guarantee that they are skilled.”

The online platform is free and user-friendly. It features expeditions, day trips and ISTA avalanche training courses organized by mountain guides and leaders.

The site is intended for anyone seeking adventure and excitement in the mountains or just looking to spend some nice time on a trip with friends or family.

ISTA is very excited to launch this partnership to make it easy for everyone to access our avalanche courses and to make the mountains a safer place.
