Lindsay is a really excellent leader.She has strong expertise as a hill walking
and snowshoe leader,paying a lot of attention to group safety.She also has
strong interpersonal skills - ensuring that everyone enjoyed their holiday.This was a really good trip. I enjoyed snowshoeing and the alpine scenery very
much. We also had an outstanding leader.Overall a great way for hillwalkers to
enjoy the alps in winter.
I have undertaken a number of other trips with KE and had found the overall standard to be very good.

This was my first time in the Mont Blanc area, my first time on snowshoes, and my first time in the mountains in winter - what an incredible new experience on all fronts! The fifth day of the trip stands out for me: We drove into Switzerland to climb Mont de l'Arpille--it was a beautiful blue sky day, wonderful new snow, challenging ascent, and incredible views looking down into the Rhone Valley. At the end of the hike, we stopped for a nice cup of hot chocolate before heading back to the chalet, where we had afternoon tea and cake awaiting us. Then that evening we did a night snowshoe to a local Savoyarde restaurant and dined on tartiflette while being warmed by a cozy fireplace. Great day, great week!

The quantity & quality of info on the website & trip dossier are real selling points - all looks very professional and creates a good impression and builds anticipation. The kind of nerd (like me) who reads technical swing tickets on goretex jackets laps up this kind of thing...
