A marvellous day, and big smiles all round!

“New Year’s Eve 2012, the sun is shining in the Chamonix valley, and the lift system is full to choking.  What better time to don skins and raquettes and set off on a day ski tour to escape the crowds?  Having being introduced to touring by Steve a few years before, he was the obvious choice as a guide. He picked an excellent route above Le Tour, dropping down into Switzerland via the De Bron glacier, a route full of quality both for myself as a skier and my friend Dave as a boarder.  There were obvious challenges with a mixed group, added to which this was Dave’s first tour, but Steve handled them superbly, ensuring the group kept moving at a steady pace both on the up and the down.  He shared willingly his intimate knowledge of the area, from slopes and snow conditions to the local history of Trient, and the day was spent enjoying the tranquillity, high mountain scenery and untracked snow that only a ski tour can provide. The end result – a marvellous day, and big smiles all round!”
