I could not have been more pleased with the tour and with Kev. It was perfect for me—a true introduction to ski mountaineering, with kick turns and ropework. I felt like I learned a lot without ever being in over my head. I’ve hiked a bit in the Aiguilles Rouges, and I love the complex terrain and ever-changing dramatic scenery. There’s nothing like skinning for a while, remembering to look over your shoulder, and be staring right at the North Face of the Grand Jorasses.

Kev was not only good company, but I was quite impressed with his guiding skills. I very much appreciated his thoughtful approach to risk management. Halfway down the descent, we switched to axes and crampons for a bit to cross a significant patch of ice, which other skiers had fallen on. I also liked how he always kept me informed about where we were headed, what to expect, etc. Good communication really helps make for an enjoyable day. Many thanks to you both for a great experience. I’ll be back!  Dave.

For me this course was a perfect balance between improving my technical knowledge and refreshing key safety messages combined with covering some great terrain and stunning scenery at a steady pace and I can recommend this course to anyone looking to progress their skills and cover new terrain.  Mike

Hi Rob, Just wanted to say a big thank you to yourself and Jonny for a great Ski Evasion Aravis week. The course was exactly what I was hoping it would be – some refreshing of knowledge and techniques combined with some wonderful ski tours– all delivered with a highly professional and friendly approach. I would thoroughly recommend the course and the Aravis region to others.  Pete.

Just to say big thank you for a fantastic week – the days flew by far too quickly! I enjoyed every part of the week thanks to you both.  It was a really good mix of ski coaching and mountain skills and I can’t think of anything that you should change.  My skiing has definitely improved as well as my confidence, both in my skiing and starting to understand more about how do it safely.

It has certainly given me a taste for ski touring and the potential for lots of adventures.  I very much hope to ski with you again sometime soon.  Best wishes, Ruth

Thanks Rob. It was a really great week.  I don’t have any comments to make re. improvements because I thought the course was a perfect blend of instruction and activity whilst taking into account, where possible, our needs and wants and I don’t think you need to change it in any way.

I’ll certainly check out future course dates and am looking forward to coming back sooner or later but not later than next year (which sounds too long).  Best wishes, Mark

We had a wonderful time climbing with Kevin! It was the best introduction we could’ve possibly had to winter climbing– and definitely a new and worthwhile experience for both of us. We have indeed received the photos from Kevin- great photos!

Skiing with Kenny was a highlight of our time in Chamonix. After spending a full day discovering off piste areas around Grand Montets, we were thrilled to spend the last day of our trip with an early season descent of the Vallee Blanche. Kenny’s expertise and good spirit were invaluable throughout our time together, ensuring we enjoyed ourselves while staying safe. Only high marks for Kenny and the team at High Mountain Guides!
