What Our Guests Say
Spring Ski Mountaineering Summits CourseHannah Vickers, May 2018
First, thank you thank you so much for taking the brief to help me prepare to climb Mt Toubkal and for arranging such a great weekend! Thank you for all the research and planning that went into the two days before we arrived to provide an experience of altitude and an ascent. We really appreciated the early morning debrief in a café and time to sort out the kit before we started each day. The clear professionalism of your approach and ability to adapt to the changing weather conditions engendered great confidence. I am now back at my desk and reflecting on what we have done. The two days were so different – I find it hard to believe I have trekked at altitude across a glacier in awe inspiring conditions and experienced the rockier pathways above the tree line. I now have a real sense of what to expect and how to manage myself. It has been a hugely exciting and very memorable two days!
Many thanks again for such a fantastic weekend and I would love to do more again.
