Thanks again for a terrific week. The learning and skiing flowed back and forth nicely. Anticipating the weather change worked out great. You do good work Brad.


I have to say that the trip was the highlight of my skiing career. I have spent many years skiing in the mountains and never hired a guide before. I would love to go again and feel you were an excellent and professional guide at all times. Your knowledge of the area, terrain and snow conditions made me feel totally comfortable. If it works out I would like to be in better condition prior to making the trip next time since it took me a day or two to get up to speed on the climbs.

Thanks again for a wonderful week,


Thanks to everyone for a fabulous trip – outstanding snow, wonderful group, “top drawer” guide! Does anyone know more stories and jokes than Brad???

Consider one of Brad Harrison's guided trips based out of the GAH lodges, He was a co-owner for 20+ years, and is one of the most experienced and funniest guys you'll ever spend time in the mountains with.
