"Thank you so much! Amazing time and loving the videos! Georgia, that's a true classic!.

Toby, OMD"

 "Thank you very much for a fantastic few days ski touring. We all agreed that it was excellent fun and even inspirational. We have already started planning for next year’s event. You organised it brilliantly and even though we were a group ranging in age from 19 to 55 there was a brilliant cohesion..

"A quick and overdue note to say thanks for an amazing 4 days in the Alps. Although I did nearly die on two occasions I thoroughly enjoyed it. I though the route was really well planned in terms of where the challenging bits were, campsites where great, porridge was excellent, company even better. Fantastic to end up at lake Annecy, was proper idyllic.

 Kyle, Cheese Classic"

"A quick and very belated thanks from me.  Thank you for hosting a sometimes difficult group so well in such a beautiful part of the world.  You’re a lucky man.  Hopefully we’ll do it again – it was a lot of fun – I hope you managed to enjoy having us too.

“Brilliant few days - perfectly pitched with great climbs, good coffee stops, excellent restaurants and fantastic support from Michael. Rick"

"What can I say, a wonderful 4 days cycling in the Alps. It had it all, monster climbs, stunnig views and a great apres agenda. Choreographed by our very own director sportif, Michael Winterton who would give Dave Brailsford a run for his money.  Planning the next trip already. Ant M"

"Thanks a tonne for organising our weekend adventures, cycling was properly tough, but massively enjoyable, scenery was stunning and company was excellent.  It would appear that you could also have a good side line in energy boosting food supplements!!!  I would have no hesitation in coming back again (and I/we will) and also recommending your company to others who are looking for a cycling trip in the Alps.

Many thanks again.


"Perfectly pitched accommodation, brilliant support and local knowledge of the local cycling routes and climbs.  Michael delivers it all with professionalism and fun

"Had a wonderful week skiing in La Clusaz.  Thanks to Michael for finding our great accomodation in St Jean de Sixt and sorting out our ski hire and ski passes. This was the first of hopefully many happy family trips. We will definitely be returning next year. Geraldine"

"Mike organised a fantastic week of skiing for us. He arranged all our kit for the trip and showed us around one of the local resorts on our first day. He organised a brilliant high mountain guide for the next five days and had some of the best skiing of my life. Mike's knowledge of the resort and local area was very useful. The trip was so much better than your standard package trip and very good value. James"

"Fantastic time, great skiing, lovely accommodation and spa. Thanks for sorting out my special dietary requirements, the restaurants you booked for us were great.

Easiest most hassle free ski trip I've ever been on! Hope to see you next year.


"Had an excellent time on the backcountry course – Mike understood exactly what we wanted and arranged for us to get some top-quality instruction along with some great guiding on decent touring kit, and his local knowledge proved very helpful. La Clusaz is a hidden gem of a resort – would definitely go again. James"

"Thank you for organising a hassle free trip. I would definitely recommend you and your company to anyone looking for a delightful weekend away with everything taken care of.Jon"

"Great skiing, company, food, and wine (well better than the same would buy in Switzerland)Chris"

"Great company and fun - and back in one piece - thanks for organisingSimon"

December 2013

"Thanks Michael for a really great skiing trip in Saint Jean de Sixt. Accommodation, village, ski instruct

ion and (even) snow were all really good and we much appreciated your local knowledge and relaxed, easygoing, helpful style. The local ‘foot on the ground’ you provide made the trip somehow more personal and certainly lower effort and It worked out really well for us all; old, young; skiing and non-skiing. All in all, a low-stress and good value experience. You went the extra mile; we appreciate it and will definitely be back for more!Andy, Julie, Max, Ben & George."

 "Thanks we had a really good trip, was just what we needed.  The apartment was good too and we plan to come back to the area in a couple years time.  Thanks for organising us and in English too, (that really helped!).  The area was perfect for not being too full of tourists and had a really relaxed village feel.  Ideal.Rob, Hayley, Eva and Zoe"

"Michael was very helpful in arranging our week's holiday in St Jean de Sixt. We loved our chalet, and really appreciated his guidance on everything from accommodation to ski hire and lift passes, to sending us in the direction of great places to eat, and even undertaking reservations on our behalf. We would highly recommend Michael's services.Romilly Holland"“Traverse Aravis took fantastic care of us throughout all stages of the trip. We benefited greatly from their local knowledge and expertise on the mountain helping make the trip as fun as possible. Michael and Simon were extremely friendly and positive throughout our stay which set the tone for the whole trip.The hotel was impeccable and had incredible views down the valley. The food and the hotel service was very good and felt that we were looked after very well by the staff.The success of the trip has been spoken about throughout the company and this would not have been so easily achieved if it hadn’t been for Traverse Aravis. Austin Goh, OMD business trip”

"Thanks for organising the trip to Saint Jean. We had a fantastic time. Everything was excellent from the hotel on the first night to the meal on the Friday evening before we left. It’s always good to ski somewhere new and I was impressed with La Clusaz and La Grand Bornand and will definitely be back. Thanks again. Glyn, Debbie, Brogan and Jasper" "Cracking weekend of ski touring! The weather wasn't kind to us, but it didn't stop us having a weekend to remember. A trip full of fresh tracks, shin deep powder, pillow lines and tree skiing. Bliss. I also learnt many good tips for avalanche safety and increased my confidence for trekking up hill. Thanks to Mike for organising yet another great holiday. I've certainly got the bug for touring and can't wait for the next trip! Paul"


January 2013 "

We benefited hugely from great suggestions, arrangements, support and problem solving right through from chalet finding to equipment hire and everything in between; and all done with patience and great good humour. The Chalet and Chinaillon were excellent and all 19 (!) of us from 6 months to 60 years had a really memorable holiday. Stuart and 18 others"


"We had a great stay. Having the flexibility of increasing the size of the party was amazing, as a disparate group of random individuals is not the easiest crew to organise! The chalet, with all it's seperate yet integrated rooms was superb, with the wood-burner, the ensuite bathrooms, and the proximity to the slopes only enhancing the vibe. Mike and his team kept things ticking over smoothly, always being available to help but never being intrusive - a fine line expertly trodden. Ben Palmer-Fry"

"Sorry this is so late in coming over but huge, huge thanks for sorting our accommodation, lift passes, rental kit... for me and the family over Christmas. A wonderful time was had by all and I for one especially enjoyed the food at Le Cabanon. Jamie"


"I was looking to do a back country safety course this year as I managed to scare myself a few times in the back country in previous years! I contacted Traverse Aravis to see what they could offer. They could not of been more helpful organising the course around our holiday plans, sorting out accommodation (that was much better quality than you usually get on a ski trip!) and generally making sure we had a great holiday. The course was great - with only 3 people in the group it meant we had the opportunity to learn and get personal attention. After the course the Traverse Aravis guys let me join them for some free skiing (free of charge) and showed me some of the best off piste in the area, which is some of the best I have experienced. Would highly recommend Traverse Aravis and La Clusaz! Dave and Jo"
