Thanks again for a great couple of days. Enjoyed both days and felt I learnt a lot – especially on the first day( even with me having my altitude moment ) and yesterday’s skiing was a lot of fun! thanks again for organising all the other trips too – it’s been invaluable!
Hope the rest of the season goes well for you. Jen

Hi Rob / Alison,
Chamonix Off Piste & Ski Touring CourseAlastair, Classic Course Feb 2018
Pleasure to receive your email and the photos. Really good photos there, thank you for taking the effort and time to take them. I really enjoyed the course and I think our team really had a good atmosphere, I felt if in need people would look after me and that is a good feeling when you are in the mountains. Many thanks to both you and Alison for creating that special and fun atmosphere, I learned a lot, got to the places where I never imagined being and I am very happy I could be part of it. It really was a pleasure and an unique experience. Ski touring really does open a whole new path to many adventures. I am also thankful you recommended Ski Breezy to me, such a great place to stay in Chamonix. I hope to take part in the future courses and trips as well. Happy skiing, Karen

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.
Ski Vallée Blanche Descent From Italy, February 2018John and Jean Spencer
Just back from a great trip to the Chamonix Valley, including three terrific days of ski-touring with High Mountain Guides. Two of the days involved stand-out tours, one of the Aiguilles Rouges, including the classic Crochues Berade traverse. A couple of days later we stuck with the powder and found some great velvet turns high under the North Face of Les Droites having traversed in from the Grands Montets top station. The intervening day was taken up with a demanding but equally rewarding Vallée Blanche tour, beginning at the Midi station, travelling over to the Hellbronner mid-station and down into Chamonix from there. I’ve climbed and skied with Rob often over nearly 10 years and every time it has been excellent.
[Thanks Tom – Here’s to another 10 years, Ed!]

I think we can safely say the group had a great day! The perfect weather and experience generally made up for the variable snow conditions and when in the mountains you have to take what’s given to you.

I just wanted to thank you all for the AMAZING week I had. It really motivated me to keep learning and training. Kenny’s tips and suggestions have really helped me realise what I have to work on from now onwards, and have also helped for this week to be so nice! I really enjoyed sharing this experience with Jenn and Brett, it was a really nice group. Gaby
