Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Jagged Globe have an excellent reputation (I have many customers who use them) and I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't use anyone who wasn't at the top of their profession (ie Simon Christy et al).

I have been on two trips a while back led by Jim Kerr the second of which was the Haute Route.

I would thoroughly recommend him and he has been involved with the SCGB for many years.

And well good enough to repeat - or as I tell my wife - "standards not achieved, I'll have to go back again".
MCC tied in well after the PSB.
Now do the SCGB Premier Party, which is much the same - off piste with guide/instructor but not the evening sessions. Again ties in well with PSB and in Val d'Espair.

Hi Colin. How was the on snow experience. Lots of good challenging skiing with instruction? Or guided stopping to hunt the transever. Do you do any rope work? Repelling down crevasses?.
I'm booked on just wetting my appetite

@LeglesWonder, Sorry for the delay. Skiing was all mountain with instruction, but concentrating off piste. Day touring a possibility. Certainly an hour or so of live transceiver training. We did one session down an avalanche debris field. Challenging skiing depending on your current ability?? Some combat skiing through bushes/trees/shrubs etc.
Any rope work was in the evening sessions.
Hope that helps.
