The Bow-Yoho Traverse April 1 to April 7, 2019. Tom, the guides (Mel and Ken) and an assistant (John) led this trip with care, kindness, humour and expertise. When conditions required it, we were able to form 2 or 3 groups according to abilities and motivation. That was fabulous. Staying the first night in Field with supper and breakfast provided is a great way to begin the trip. The shuttle at the start and at the end was well-planned. When I signed up for the trip I had concerns about the quality of the food. Tom reassured me. He was right. Michelle Heerchop\'s \'Touch of Love\" provided the food. It was varied, tasty and nutritious. I am very very pleased that I was able to be part of this trip. I highly recommend Tom\'s Sawback Alpine Adventures.

We actually had a different guide (Les) but couldnt have been more impressed. He was super knowledgeable and helpful. Very patient and his timing for our day was excellent. Whistler is of course beautiful and it was a wonderful introduction to the back country.

Unfortunately Trevor was ill for the original booked dates but he organised another guide for me, well known local Charles (Chucky) Gerrard. We met up the night before for a quick meet and greet and made a plan for the next day. The actual tour was absolutely unbelievable and I\'d highly recommend it. Chucky was extremely experienced and picked my comfort and fitness level flawlessly and matched the trip exceptionally. Seriously If you\'re thinking of a tour, get a guide!

Went to Burnie Chalet near Smithers BC with Sawback Alpine Adventures in April 2019. Had an amazing ski week in a breathtakingly beautiful landscape. The logistics, the accommodations, the food, the people and the skiing were all outstanding. One of my best touring trips ever. I highly recommend Sawback and Tom Wolfe.
