Guided and Catered Trips

Grande Esplanade Traverse

April is one of the best times of the year to grab the sun screen throw on the sunglasses and head on up to the Esplanade Range for one of the premier ski trips on Planet Earth. Explore 50,000 powder filled acres plus 4 great lodges along the way. This trip is fully guided and catered

"I would personally like to thank you and GAH for contributing to the success of the holiday also.  Every aspect of dealing with GAH has been great. You have a fantastic bunch of staff. The accommodation was 5 star, however its the extra that the staff contribute to you enjoying your stay even more. The food was superb  with plenty of it and delivered with a winning smile. What more can you ask for?"  Trish Elmore
