What people are saying about Backcountry Skiing | Swiss Alps



Very good experience. Great guide. Bad weather but we managed to really enjoy the weekend. Thanks!


Plus de temps doit être consacré à la familiarisation de l'équipement qu'on portait dans nos sacs, pelle, sonde. Quoi faire si le guide est emporté par une avalanche, une deuxième radio devrait être porté par un des clients, comment utiliser les émetteurs de détresse lors d'une recherche.



Gilbert was great company and found a really cool location despite difficult conditions off piste



Have just finished 3 days skiing every mountain in Zermatt with Herbert He is an excellent guide and I look forward to skiing with him again



Hi Gilbert, We are back home. We want to thank you once again. In our companies we are used to cooperate with profis and you are a real profesional. The last 3 days in Verbier were exciting, even demanding. Thank you very much and have a good and safe season!!!
