“I was snowboarding with my 16 year old son and we had Ben for 2 days. He was absolutely brilliant and we both really enjoyed it. Ben’s local knowledge was excellent and he took us to some great areas where there was untouched powder. Ben was very personable and amazing as a guide, he helped us improve our riding both on the groomed and ungroomed slopes.”Blodwen, Australia
