I just wanted to point out one thing that I particularily liked about the course this weekend. The fact that you and Keith had an explanation for every question. I think that is a strong sign of the knowledge you both possess. It really made it easy to learn from and trust you guys. Great job to both of you. I feel confident that I can start to practice my avalanche skills and make safe and educated decisions about backcountry travel.”
Thanks for a great week at Bernie’s lodge. Your low key and inclusive style of guiding and your clear enjoyment of the group helped make our week.
“I climbed my first peak at age 44, with Matt as my guide. It was an incredible experience made all the more so by Matt’s knowledge, expertise, and ability to inspire. I’ve since done three more climbs with him, each one uniquely challenging and exhilarating. When confronted with a difficult route or a tough pitch, Matt always seems to know exactly what to do next. That kind of leadership and his constant attention to safety creates confidence in a novice climber like me, allowing me to push myself physically and mentally to get to the summit.”
