CHAMONIX SNOWSHOE

We had a great time on the Chamonix Snow Shoe Holiday.  The chalet was a great base - really comfortable and so well run by Abby and Andy.  Stephanie, our mountain leader, was brilliant!  She made such an effort to make sure everyone in the group enjoyed themselves.  The snowshoeing was lots of fun...the only thing that would make it even better is if the walks were even longer!

CHAMONIX SNOWSHOE

A week of superb snow, brilliant sunshine, very good quality equipment, daily walks that were all completely different but fabulous in their own right, very friendly hotel in the centre of Argentiere with an excellent range of choice for breakfast & 3 course dinner in the lovely attached restaurant. What more could you want!

CHAMONIX SNOWSHOE

It was great to get away from it all into the snowy moutains and we were blessed with lots of blue skies. We felt in safe hands with our leader Emma, who chose our walks carefullly in relation to the conditions. She was also fun despite being under the weather (she got a colleague in to cover for her one day, who was also great). The hotel was comfy with excellent food (five courses on New Year's eve) in a pleasant French village Argentiere just outside Chamonix.

Fantastic walks.  Fantastic chalet.  Fantastic hosts.  Great weather as well.  No complaints at all.  Special mention should go to Oliver and Elaine who looked after us famously during the week.

CHAMONIX SNOWSHOE

Returned again to Chamonix, and again had a great time with fantastic snow and great days with Oliver ass our guide. Fantastic cake and dinner on our return each day, the hot tub after a long day was just great. It was a great week with great company and if you never done any snowshoeing then it’s an excellent place to start and allows access to places that you could not get to in winter without the snowshoeing

CHAMONIX SNOWSHOE

Chamonix a lovely area which had visited many times before including Chalet Savoy some 9 years previous, the accomodation and food were both excellent and of the highest quality. But the major let down was the technical, physical and duration of the walking which was advertised as grade "C" but was is reallity only "A/B" grade at best which let some what "sour taste" to the week.

Exodus Response

As Mr Bottomley mentions we have already replied directly to his concerns. We are confident that the walks on this trip are set at a suitable level and that Oliver enables the walks to be enjoyable whilst ensuring the safety of all in the group. From reviewing all feedback we are confident that the grade C weeks offer the correct amount of difficulty and that Oliver is suitable to lead these weeks (see Jan 2011 review by Gerard Neilan that reflects this). Oliver himself has climbed Mont Blanc Solo, regularly trains Cross-country ski racing with members of the British army team and holds the International Mountain Leader qualification plus three ISIA badges (International Ski Instructor Association) - Austria, USA and Britain. All the above qualifications are regularly re-evaluated and Oliver is more than qualified and capable for leading this week. He also leads 17 of our Mont Blanc Highlights trip back to back throughout the summer. Obviously in winter conditions leaders do have to follow increased safety measures and we would expect and require no less than this. As with any group snowshoeing holiday the leader can only go as fast as the overall group can manage. On Mr. Bottomley’s week some of the group would have struggled with a faster pace. To quote from his wife’s four star review: “snow shoeing is quite hard work”. On these pages there are reviews from other clients, please again see comments from his wife Mrs Bottomley who says 'Oliver is great - full of knowledge about the area. He always knew the best places to go for the best conditions'. We are passionate about providing the best quality of trips and customer service possible. As you will see from the comments many of our clients have been very happy with this holiday and wholeheartedly recommend it.

CHAMONIX SNOWSHOE

We'd been to the Chalet Savoy on a previous summer trip (9 years ago), so it was great to be back in winter (despite the lack of snow lower down). Great accomodation, lovely hosts, fabulous food, just a bit disappointing that it wasn't that snowy - but not much you can do about the weather! (although we still managed to walk in snow-shoes nearly the whole time we were out)

CHAMONIX SNOWSHOE

I've been on snowshoeing holidays before and know that for a perfect week you need the environment, the weather, the snow, the accommodation, the food, the group and the guide to be good. This was such a week. It was superb. To think it was all run by two people - Oliver and Elaine -  is incredible!
