Cervinia Ski, Backcountry skiing from Breuil Cervinia

First time for us backcountry with guide. Nicolas really made the best of it despite difficult spring conditions with only little snow left on the slopes. He even found some powder for us. He is really nice company too. Booking was smooth too with fast responses from both admin and our guide Nicolas.

Porta Nera ski touring trip in Cervinia

Loved the day out, the guide (Nicholas) was knowledgeable and we felt very safe in his hands. It was our first time ski touring and overall it was a superb experience. We will certainly be doing more in the future! The communication was also excellent. Silvia was in contact with us through email and WhatsApp and it was very easy to ask questions.
