What Our Guests Say
This was my first ski trekking adventure and I could not be happier with the experience. Just brilliant. Kathy our guide was so helpful, kind, great fun and passionately informative. The agenda was also adapted based on the weather so that we filled the two days just perfectly to optimise time skiing back country, trekking, learning skills. If you are thinking of doing this – just do it. Thanks Rob and Kathy.
Val Feret & Vallée Blanche Intro Ski Touring WeekendGareth Kaminski-Cook, February 2018
What a great way to end our holiday! After more than a week of skiing in and around Chamonix the weather finally came good and we were able to fulfil a long-held ambition of taking on the Vallée Blanche. Despite some crusty snow high up the ‘easy’ route from the top of the Hellbronner lift was a delight, with astonishing views. For the most part the skiing is straightforward, but for the likes of us that is only possible with an accomplished guide. We’ve skied with Rob many times and he knows our limits (which are comparatively modest). As a result, we had a splendid day surrounded by breath-taking scenery. Rob has the great ability to instil absolute confidence while making the whole experience fun and informative – the mark of a true professional.
