A recent post on the Explore-Share blog  described EEMGA efforts to organize an IFMGA training course in Eastern Europe. Several EEMGA members who are currently training to become fully-certified IFMGA guides are already using the platform to promote their programs, both in Eastern European countries and in other classic mountaineering destinations.
Explore-Share has seen its users’ interest in off-the-beaten-path destinations like Gudauri in Georgia and Bansko in Bulgaria grow significantly in recent months and believes a lot more can be done in the future to help promote alpine destinations in Eastern Europe.
