We had high hopes for our winter getaway and Stuart and Leah made certain that it exceeded our expectations. My wife and I have always wanted to winter camp but neither of us had ever strapped on snowshoes. We needed some guidance to make sure we didn't get ourselves in over our heads. We sure lucked out.

My husband and I had a great time snowshoeing with Stuart. He was so friendly and knowledgeable. It was a very cold day when we went snowshoeing (Jan 2016). Half way through, my husband toes were freezing, and Stuart managed to keep us calm and get us back to the parking lot safely. And then we realized that our car... More

Recommended for anyone wanting a moderate physical challenge and a desire to learn the significance of nature and its splendor. Stuart went the extra mile to make the trip entertaining. Great commentary and education of nature and culinary skill with a camp fire. He handled all the details. We will do this again.
