  • "We have been employing the guiding services of Mountain Adventure Guides for more than ten years since we first met Richard to learn about crevasse rescue. We’ve had some amazing ski touring trips, a Mont Blanc summit, learned to rock climb and much more. It’s always fun venturing out with Richard and he continues to dangle more exciting summits, tours and couloirs in front of us!"
