Hannah– Thank you for an amazing few days touring!  Your guidance, patience and words of wisdom were very much appreciated. The route choices were pitched to perfection being both challenging but achievable. It has certainly, as I hoped opened by eyes to the world of ski touring/mountaineering.  Thank you both again for a fantastic few days, I am already thinking about next year..

Evening Rob, I had an absolute ball!

Really enjoyed my first alpine experience over our two days in the mountains. Never expected to be able to experience something quite like our traverse of Aiguilles du Marbrées. Neil was a brilliant guide, learned loads of new skills, and can’t wait for my next trip.
Will definitely be in touch re another course. Thanks,Paddy

It was an amazing trip and great to ski with you all! Thanks again to Gav for looking after us and Rob for putting everything together. I’m now sat on a train going into London! 😫I think I know where I would rather be right now. 😉 Jen

First of all, thanks to Jen for setting the ball rolling in the first place and to Rob for coordinating the trip. Many thanks to Gav for looking after us all so well and for being such good company. Finally, thanks to everyone for being such a friendly and fun group. I had a really great time and was quite sad when it all ended.

Thank you for organising what turned out to be a great week with Gav, who looked after us impeccably, and in whom I think we all had the highest confidence.  This first experience of hut to hut touring has definitely given me a taste for doing some more tours in the future, and no doubt I’ll be in touch at some point in the future.  Thanks to everyone for making it such a fantastic experience.

Thank you for a fantastic 4 days in Chamonix. I found the course very informative and fun and learnt lots of new things that I look forward to putting into action again soon.. Everything was very professionally run and organised so well done to you and the team!  Nick

Hi Rob

Thanks for your help over the last few days. The spontaneous decision to go for a winter ascent of Gran Paradiso proved to be a thoroughly rewarding experience. Great photos too!

Hi Rob,
Just a quick note to let you know that I had a super day out with Gav yesterday, we went up the Glacier d’Argentiere and I had a really great time. Thanks for running the day even though it was just for me!

We had a great week, topped off magnificently by the three guided days with John. As you know the weather had thrown up some interesting challenges but John did his upmost to provide us with some really memorable ski days. His wealth of experience and jovial yet no nonsense approach was much appreciated by us all.
Great work guys, would book again without hesitation.

And just to mention again, John’s committed efforts to keep six wobbly skiers and boarders happy is duly noted. He did seem to go the extra mile to squeeze some good skiing out of somewhat limited options. Kind regards, Laurence.
