Rene and Chris Whitney Via Cottonwood 8/26/12

leave a comment »

My wife Chris and I want to tell you what a fabulous experience the Whitney Cottonwood trip was. Much better than we hoped it would be. It was one, if not the best, vacation experiences we have ever participated in. Our leaders, Aaron and Jessica were marvelous–patient, caring, helpful, knowledgeable, and good-humoured. In addition, they are terrific cooks. We never expected to eat so well! We can’t say enough good things about them. And Max Kozak the packer was a delight as well.

In addition, we want to thank you for all the terrific advice and help that you provided to us before departure. We had a feeling that SMC was a very competent organization from the way you handled your job and we were not at all disappointed. We would recommend SMC trips to anyone. It was an all-around job well done by everyone and we are so glad that we took part. We wish we were back in the Sierra!

Brian on his Whitney Climb 6/4/12

leave a comment »

I want to thank your Team for a great Climb on Mt. Whitney this past week.  Aaron and Luke did a fantastic job for us.  These two young men were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.  It was a pleasure having these two guide us on the mountaineers route.  At every step along the way, Aaron and Luke made us feel as if our success, safety and enjoyment was their top priority.
Connie has been extremely helpful and responsive in setting up details of this climb.
I would recommend these guides and your company to anyone wanting a first rate experience.  This was an outstanding adventure I will always remember.
Thank you all for helping  make it so.

The summit to Mt. Whitney via the Mountaineer’s Route was amazing. Sam is a great guide and we were fortunate to have him lead our group.  Daniel and I will have this special memory forever and I want to thank you for your patience with all of my calls and answering all of my questions.
I hope to do another tour with SMC.

Dear Connie:

My recent trips with SMC (Boundary Peak & Mount Whitney) were incredible! I want to thank my guides (Ryan, Jim, Andrew, & Sam) for two awesome mountaineering adventures. Their knowledge, professionalism, and preparedness made both trips a rewarding and unforgettable experience. Please share this email with them and thank them for me.

I also want to thank you for your professionalism and for just being so nice in preparing and scheduling these two trips for me. I would certainly recommend SMC to anyone looking for a great outdoor experience, and I will also put a post in the Highpointers Club’s Newsletter recommending your guide service for Boundary and Whitney. Thanks once again.

Sincerely,

Angelo Annunziato

Joe and I are just a couple days removed from an awesome trip up the East Face of Mount Whitney.  Aaron was our guide and did a fantastic job from start to finish and made the experience really fun.  We would use SMC again in a heartbeat and recommend your service to anybody looking to do a trip.  Thanks again,

Rhonda on climbing Whitney via Cottonwood 8.11

leave a comment »

We just returned home from our trip to Whitney via Cottonwood and I wanted to express my sincere thank you for putting together such a fantastic trip.  Honestly, it will be one to remember forever.  Above all, Marie and Luke were outstanding.  Their expertise, encouraging words, ability to pace us and sure friendship was the ticket for success!!  They both did a wonderful job supporting my 14 year old son through the peaks, teaching him about the backcountry and making the entire trip fun.  We are putting together pictures and will be sure to add SMC to the email.

Still flying,
Rhonda

Connie, Andrew, and SP,
I’m just now back in touch with e-mail, so it’s the first opportunity to say thanks for the Bear Creek Spire trip and for the flexibility in rescheduling.  It was perfect.  Andrew is an excellent guide; I can’t imagine better.  I’ve done four trips with SMC, all of them A+.

Hi Connie,
Just wanted to say thanks for everything.  The climbs were great and so was the service.  You handled the scheduling (and changes) quickly, kindly and professionally.  Aaron was also great — he is a very skilled guide and also very professional with people and logistics.  Thanks again for a great experience.
