What our customers say

  • "We had an excellent powder guide. His avalanche briefing was very comprehensive (more than I have had before from other instructors). He was very attentive to his guests, helping them whenever he could and waiting for them. I would definitely go again."

  • "My powder guide was terrific - professional, fun and always thought about which runs would give us the best powder. He challenged me to do the Peak hike twice and I totally succeeded. My skills have improved so much in 2 days because of this dedicated, highly competent and superstar guide. Thanks a million!!!!! I’m still buzzing from these past 2 days."
