I wanted to let you know that we had an excellent time doing this trip. Jason made it a big fun trip for us. The route was planned, the food taken care of, the gear taken care of. It was really enjoyable trip. I didn’t believe i could climb a mountain but you guys helped me achieve this dream and this opened up a whole new frontier in my life. Thanks again for the wonderful experience.

Hello! We had a wonderful trip and our guide Jenny was spectacular! She took care of us and made our first ever backpacking trip so easy, letting us just enjoy the experience without any of the worry. She even was calming and helpful when I got nervous about heights and thunderstorms. Plus, the food was delicious (we kept saying we were eating better in the woods than we do at home!). We can’t be happier with our experience and will be enthusiastically recommending your services to our family and friends. Thanks for giving us the confidence to take up a new hobby in backpacking!
— Alyssa D.
Thanks for following up. The course was AWESOME. I can’t say enough great things about Mark, our guide. He was super well-informed and knowledgeable, and his instruction style, which is to let us go just far enough down the wrong path so that his corrections and tips have maximum impact, was perfectly suited to me and my companion. Would definitely take future courses from you guys, and would definitely request Mark.
— Greg N.
The trip was great Dave. Joe was awesome. Great knowledge of the terrain. Great chef. We found some great snow and lines. Also, kept us safe and out of av danger. Thanks again. Def will use you guys in the future.

I plan to ski with Dave again on a future trip I have recently inquired about, so as a returning client myself I think that is the best recommendation I can give....I thought his professionalism and respect for his clients are best I have ever experienced from a guide.
