Testimonials For ISM

The course was excellent, lots of variety and provided me with a good range of skills. Loved reaching the summit of the Weissmeis, for such a nervous and unconfident novice like me, I gained a real sense of achievement from the ascent and the whole week. Huge thanks to Pat.

Jo Clark
Summits & Skills 4000m (Instructional Course)

This was a fantastic trip. Paolo was excellent. The accommodation great. All helped along by wall to wall sunshine, stunning arctic scenery and some superb snow, so no problems as far as I'm concerned.

Steve (2017)
Ski Lyngen Alps Norway

The course content was brilliant. No knocking whatsoever. We had Jacky for the duration, and his experience shines through and his leadership. He taught me a lot of things, not just the black and white of things but actually quick methods to overcome tricky situations!
