Awesome week – the most fun educational experience I’ve had. Unbelievable terrain – huge! Great options from alpine to perfect glades. The sauna is truly a highlight and a must at the end of the day. Thanks to Monika and Dave for feeding us like kings each and every day. Christoph gave us the goods and a tonne of knowledge. I’ll be back! Thanks Christoph.
