Great customer service and Renato (our guide) was fantastic. He really tailored the trip to our experience level while challenging us. I would recommend him highly!
My guide ended up being a local snowboard guide named Peter. It was excellent. Lovely guy, we got to ride some powder as well as practice searching with the avalanche rescue equipment. All round good day. Would highly recommend
Great guiding experience. We had a couple of touring newbies, and Andreas was very patient. Would book again.
Andi did a great job and the day was the highlight of our trip!
