Beyond Expectations

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

My friend and I took the liberty of running any part of the trails that we could (with our guide's permission/advice). After sprinting a section of a trail with an overly qualified expert of the mountains (our guide's husband), with his go-ahead we decided to continue running down the rest of the mountain instead of waiting for the rest of the group and taking the gondola down. It was a steep path down, but we ran it all the way and managed to beat the group back, even though they took the lift. It was one of the greatest feelings.

What did you think of your group leader?

loves what she does, knowledgeable, accepting of any pace/desired activity level of the group

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Get some good shoes -- Mammuts or Salomons -- and a good backpack
