What Our Guests Say
Ski Mountaineering Haute Route / Aosta / West OberlandHetty & Tom, Ski Mountaineering Week In The Swiss / Italian & French Alps, April 2018
Rob and high mountain guides played an instrumental part in my planning for skiing the Haute Route this year. I had not done any ski touring prior to this year, so the Haute Route was always going to be a challenge, therefor it was very important to me to get in as much training and familiarity as possible. Early on in our communication, Rob and I planned a couple of courses to make sure I’d get in enough training for the Haute route, from an intro weekend, to a 5 day intro week with an overnight in an mountain hut night and high mountain touring. I also wanted to focus on mountaineering as it features fairly regularly on the haute route, so Rob and I planned an additional weekend practicing mountaineering skills, which I was very grateful for, even though the weather was a complete white out. We were rewarded with a fun powder day in Italy on the last day though. 🙂
Rob’s communication, planning and attention to detail is second to none and my time with High Mountain Guides during this winter was invaluable. I’ m already looking at booking more courses with them for next year and I’ve definitely been bitten by the ski touring bug.
