We hear this a lot, especially when our outdoor guides return from their tour with their group. Beaming faces, big grins, and plenty of pics on their smartphones. Pictures out in the snow, between white slopes and snow-covered trees, with mountain landscapes straight out of a winter blockbuster. Metre-long icicles on rustic Alpine huts, Kaiserschmarrn (torn pancakes), and apple strudel, in between big smiles and radiant faces.
Often, even our outdoor guides come back with even bigger smiles.
They love to be outdoors with our guests, to see them glowing, and to bring them back to us just as jubilant. They are certified mountain and hiking guides and are as familiar with wind and weather as they are with the right clothing and equipment and the necessary physical condition one needs for an excursion.
