"It's honestly opened my eyes to how much extra energy I was inputting and how brutal of a track I was laying for others with less energy haha"  (Taylor Livingstone)

"Alex's creating an efficient uptrack was very helpful for an old timer like me. It reinforced skills and taught me some new ones. I particularly liked the training - with eyes closed and feeling your legs. Alex has a good way about him and ensured safety and skill development and we even got in some nice turns. Even with many ski touring years under my belt, I felt this course was worthwhile."   (Dave Conly)
