"I loved my AST 1 training with April! She is so passionate and knowledgeable you can't help but fully engage. I definitely had my nerves about the course, but April holds a super safe and inclusive space and breaks things down really well. Stephanie was supporting April, and she was also amazing. Very patient and always very clear with her explanations. I highly recommend both guides!"

"What an amazing experience, our guide Eric was so easy going and helpful. We were pretty nervous going in as we didn't have much experience, luckily it was just myself and my brother and nobody else besides our guide. It was a spectacular day and we made our way up to the peak and then boarded down the beautiful glacier to a breathtaking ice rock."
