Yasuko is a very experienced guide. We spent two days with her and thoroughly enjoyed our time. She suggested tours based on our experience level and the weather conditions (one day was extremely stormy, yet she still found a place where we could ski). Both days, we were making fresh tracks :) Highly recommend!
