We had such a great time snowshoeing with David! He took us to some GREAT spots; the views were incredible. He was knowledgeable, considerate of our pace, and took some amazing photos of us (seriously, check out his photos)! I highly recommend!

Scott did an excellent job with my 7 & 8 year old. They had a blast on the mountain all day with him, and their skill set improved from traversing intermediate runs to mastering the runs by the end of the day! Thanks again!

We were a group of 10 including 6,8,12 years old kids. The tour was really easy for everyone. The tour guy was excellent and always aware of the group needs. The view is great.
