What riders are saying

  • No words can describe the amazing experience I had with Sherpas Ride! They are going above and beyond to find places with the best conditions every day and are providing a very professional guiding. The trip was an unforgettable experience which I definitely want to do again and I can highly recommend Sherpas Ride, you will enjoy the time with Sherpas Ride to the fullest! Thank you Vojta, Kuba, Cyril and Thomas for everything!!

  • Vojta, Cyril, Kuba and Thomas run a top notch guiding company. They led my group on an amazing 8 day trip in Hokkaido during the second half of February 2017. They prayed to the snow gods and we were rewarded with 6 feet (~150 CM) of light delicious JaPow over the 8 days, surfing snow all over the region. It was beyond epic. Great bunch of dudes, highly competent guides, I would ride with them any day! Highly recommend Sherpas Ride for anyone considering hitting up Japan or any of their other awesome trips.

  • What a blast! We had the most epic trip with the boys from Sherpas Ride. Vojta assembled a very good group with strong riders. We got blessed with the weather and found fresh powder lines every day. Vojta always made sure to keep us busy and entertained – no day like the previous one, new highlights every day!! I 100% recommend this camp. If you want to have a great time in japan with easy going guides that ski hard and always find fresh powder stashes at a really decent price, look no further.

  • Vojta and Tomas were the best guides who were able to find fresh japow all the time and Kuba is a great cook who makes excellent starters of the day (breakfast). Be prepared for tons of snow, freezing cold temperatures and a lot of faceshots. Freeride camp and the road trip camp were the best ski trip in my life so far. Thank you once again!

  • What an experience! Vojta, Tomas, Cyril and Kuba run a great camp with good balance of ski touring and lift access to get to the best lines of the day. I liked the idea of not having daily program set in stone but rather wait for morning weather report to decide on the best option for the day. I highly recommend Sherpas ride for Japow experience.

  • The guides give always their best to find untracked powder… even if you think it s not possible due e.g. a bad weather day, be sure THEY will find it! Keep on going like that guys!
