  • David and Asa were perfect hosts, very friendly, helpful and good company. David suggested some great hikes in the region and we even managed to get out one afternoon to take Poppy (the dog) for a hike in the hills. They went out of their way to ensure we had an excellent stay.

Uniquely for this program we have 5 guided days from 6 skiing days. We will decide during the week which days will be guided - this means we can choose the program by the weather and snow conditions. We strike a balance between instruction & guiding - very flexible and agreed between the group and our lead guide.
