What Our Guests Say

Thanks Rob, completely deliberate. Amazing few days and was awesome to see Chamonix. Please send through photos and let’s get some mountain huts booked for next year.

Thanks again Will.

Hi Rob, thanks again for a really enjoyable course. I appreciated your calm and patient support, along with your encouragement and sense of humour!

Thanks also to Derek for the same reasons.
The team were very special, always working together with consideration for others and appreciating the strengths and weaknesses of each person.
A great course! 😊

Hi Rob and Derek, Just wanted to say a big thank you, I really enjoyed the course last week and thanks for taking us to the most stunning places. I really feel like there’s a whole new world of skiing out there, thanks for being so relaxed and easy to learn with and thanks for the great pictures.  Have a great rest of the season, looks like good snow yesterday!  Thanks, Amy

Hi Rob, Thanks for being part of a great week. Really enjoyed spending time with you in the mountains and getting your input into skiing in the mountains.  It was a relaxed, informative and enjoyable time.  Hope to see you around and possibly do some more skiing with you. Ian

It is pretty safe to say that anybody who signs up to work with the High Mountain Guides does so because of their love of the mountains. In Rob it is clear to see that his love and passion lies in the mountains. This passion is equalled by the respect he has for them and is backed up by a deep and superior knowledge. I must admit that when I turned up a day early (as recommended by Rob!) to find my ski legs again I was a little disheartened to find myself in what would not be considered the best ski conditions at an icy wind swept Le Tour. How wrong I was, for the first morning of our ‘intro to ski touring’ weekend Rob had us in fresh powdery tracks! Thank you for a top weekend. I will definitely be coming back to enjoy and learn more with Rob and his team.

Thanks for this Rob and also for a great weekend. It was a lot of fun to ski with you all.  I really enjoyed myself and learnt a lot so just signed up for the February weekend.
Have fun

Many thanks for the photos and a good day out, it was highly enjoyable.  Rob found the location and the conditions for a fantastic day tour in what had proved to be a really thin & icy Chamonix Valley. Good conversation and helpful information throughout made for a really enjoyable day.  Thanks,  Stephen

‘Powder Touring Patrol’ at Combloux, early January 2019, some great fresh tracks to be had…

I’d second everything Stephen had said,it was a fantastic day, just what I was hoping for. Gordon.

Hi Rob/Calum

I had a terrific day thanks, going just the right amount outside my comfort zone to feel pushed but not finishing up a nervous wreck! Calum was great company and gave me total confidence.

I will be in touch again, either for the Matterhorn training weekend or a similar guided day.

First all of thank you for the training course with Andy – an amazing and experienced guide that was able to make my first real mountaineering baby steps to be a right proportion of fun and challenge (despite very rainy second day 🙂  ).
Please keep me posted on opportunities for Gran Paradiso & Mont Blanc courses.  Thanks again for the opportunity to get familiar with mountaineering equipment and techniques with a great guide in the beautiful setting of Snowdonia.

Thank you for organising the Snowdonia Matterhorn training weekend.  I had a fantastic time with my climbing partner, Debbie and our guide Ric Potter. Even the weather was great.  Our guide, Ric had a great way of explaining everything, clear and easy to understand. He inspired confidence in our equipment, our ability and our trust in him. He really showed us everything we needed to know, watched and corrected where necessary and praised where it was due.
I would certainly recommend Ric to anyone thinking of going on this course. Once again, thanks to yourself and Ric for a fantastic weekend and looking forward to the Scotland Matterhorn training weekend.

I had an excellent weekend. Rock climbing in big boots was new for me. It was good to learn some new techniques such as moving together. The weekend was great for my motivation. Before I started my drive home on Monday morning I even made a quick ascent of Snowdon!

I was very impressed with Callum. He is clearly an excellent rock climber. He was very enthusiastic and wanted to share his knowledge, experience and advice throughout the course.  I look forward to visiting the Alps next Summer to climb the Matterhorn….Regards George
