Spring Ski Summits Course 2022Darryl Sergison, Ski Mountaineering in Chamonix & Bernese Oberland
Yesterday was absolutely awesome and made a great final day to my first full winter season.
Kev has done a great job this last week, especially given the tricky snowpack and dodgy weather. I had an awesome time and skied some fantastic snow in incredible locations (we also managed to find some awful snow but that’s all part of spring ski touring!
West Highlands Mont Blanc Training WeekendJames Andrews, Fort William Mt Blanc Training Course
Just to say thanks for organising a great trip. The team really enjoyed it and Hannah did a great job of encouraging the team who felt they were able to find their limit in a well-supported and safe way.
The team is mulling over a potential trip to Mt Blanc having been pushed hard on this one and I’ll let you know where they end up.
Speak soon. Jim

Cairngorms 🏴 Matterhorn Training Weekend 26-27 Mar 2022Chris Cura, Matterhorn Preparation & Mountaineering
Two great bespoke mountain days in the Cairngorms with the experienced and knowledgeable Jonathan Preston: the Twin Ribs onto Fiaicall Ridge with a long snow descent, and a trip up the icy Goat path and an ascent of Afterthought Arete.
Increased my confidence in crampons greatly and brought me closer to the skill and fitness I will need for the Matterhorn itself. I strongly recommend High Mountain Guides!

Feb 2022 Aviemore Mt Blanc Training WeekendPaul Bratt & Simon Conroy, Winter Mont Blanc Training In The Cairngorms
I just got home and enjoyed every minute ! Lots of skills learned, and most definitely large quantities of winter !! Michael and I teamed with JP who was excellent. As well as the technical skills I learned how crucial it is to have the right kit to suit onesself. Looking forward to doing some more ! Paul
I just want to thank you for the training weekend in Aviemore. It was much better than I had hoped for. Dave was excellent – he pushed us hard and offered a wide range of challenges to prepare us for our trip the Alps this summer. We both learned a lot and feel much better prepared for future days on the mountains. Simon.
Cairngorms Mid Winter Mont Blanc Training WeekendMichael, Aviemore Mont Blanc Training Weekend, Feb 2022
Having just completed the February Mont Blanc training weekend in Aviemore I wanted to say thank you to HMG for organising a really enjoyable and informative course. The weather was wintery but the flexibility of the guides to accommodate the weather and still put us through our paces meant we got a lot done. Rob answered several kit questions before the course and that stood me in great stead.
If you are thinking about whether to go on the course, I can say that it is a great opportunity to benchmark your kit and fitness, the safety and movement skills learned give confidence and the amount of practical information about actually climbing Mont Blanc that comes from general discussions with others and the guide is invaluable. Definitely recommended.
Jan 2022, Grand St. Bernard Snow Shoe ExpeditionSarah & Jon, Monastery at Grand St. Bernard Private Guiding Expedition
Thank you so much to Rob for an amazing snow shoeing expedition to the Grand St. Bernard Monastery, Col de Barasson, Mont Fourchon and the surrounding area. Rob’s excellent communication, knowledge of the mountains and help with kit and preparation made planning the trip really easy. On the expedition itself, Rob was fantastic company – friendly, professional and good humoured with a brilliant outlook on the mountains and the environment.
His expertise was also hugely impressive and he struck the perfect balance between challenging us with the itinerary while also building in avalanche and route-finding training. The trip was undoubtedly one of our mountaineering highlights and we feel more inspired now than ever before to build on our skills and spend as much time as we can in the mountains!

Autumn Mont Blanc AscentCharlie Fisher, Mont Blanc, October 2021
Autumn Alpine Mountaineering Trip, Nov 22Simon Everett, Chamonix North Face Private Guiding
Thanks for an amazing few days. You pushed me to achieve things I didn’t think I was capable of and taught me patiently. I have learnt loads and enjoyed myself enormously. Today fully type 1 fun. Escarra definitely a bit of 1 a lot of 2 and a tiny bit of 3!
But overall the best day in the hills I’ve ever had.

Chamonix Mountaineering & 4000m Peak AscentPaul Tucker, Alpine mountaineering training & private guiding, July 2021
I’ve done two trips guided by Rob this year and both experiences have been excellent. The first time I took my son and brother in law to climb the Gran Paradiso, unfortunately due to Covid restrictions this wasn’t possible but Rob gave us a fantastic alternative at short notice and we achieved all of our objectives. My son (16) struggled at times but Rob was really encouraging and patient with him which enabled him to gain a huge amount of confidence and a big sense of achievement. The plan was pitched at exactly the right level.
Chamonix Matterhorn Training CourseFred Soderstrom, Chamonix Mountaineering Day Trips, June 2021
Terrific climbing with Rob and Tom. I let High Mountain Guides choose the 3 day-climbs and we went for traverse of Aiguille de l’index and Aiguilles Crochues and final day for traverse of Aiguilles Marbrees ( back in time for the best cappuccino at Torino Refuge )They encouraged me but also told me how I could improve and were also realistic when aiming for further goals.
Highly-recommended-MountainGuides !😁 Fred
