"I did a two day basic mountaneering skills weekend with Allie at Thredbo and having a rock climbing background myself I was straight away impressed with her professionalism and organisational skills it was clear to me that her years of experience and technical knowledge made my learning experience fun and by the end of my time in the snow I learned valuable skills, from basic navigation and map reading, crevasse rescue technique, snow and ice climbing, snow and ice anchors, packing the right gear for an overnight trip in the backcountry, nutrition tips, reading the snow conditions and self arrest. I highly recommend Allie Pepper not only as a guide but as a mentor."

"Thanks for an absolutely awesome couple of days climbing. You really did put together the perfect 2 day program for teaching me what I needed right now. I finally feel confident climbing on ice and steeper snow and am definitely ready to climb Mt Aspiring (New Zealand). It was truly great to get to spend a few days with you, learning more, knowing how much more I have to learn and hearing from someone who has achieved so much. You have been an important part of a great journey for me. Thank you."
