"My partner and I are very independent and love a challenge (being Aussies), so we started planning on our own for our holiday in Zermatt. We nearly lost our marbles. I then came across Alpine Exposure and David Court. From my first email enquiry, he was helpful with every detail needed to make a ski trip hassle free in a country on the other side of the world. It is hard to trust people online these days and my partner was skeptical at first but all the positive comments that you can read about David made us confident that he was our man."
"David gave us a fair price, sent tickets and all the info we needed in advance and it was great to have him there at the station to meet and greet us. Zermatt is amazing, David took us to the coolest places and we enjoyed his company very much. His knowledge about Zermatt is unbelievable and he is a well respected person in the community - walking around and greeting the locals."
"The greatest accolade I could give to David was his honesty throughout and the fact that - although we were one of his small clients for the week - he gave us the same respect as someone that my be a superstar or a millionaire."

"My wife and I just got back from an INCREDIBLE week in Zermatt. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and not one we will ever forget. David went way out of his way to make sure we had a perfect experience in the Swiss Alps. He found us great lodging, booked awesome dinner reservations, and guided us around the vast ski areas. It was truly amazing!"

"I travelled to Italy and Switzerland this past December with three families. If you are considering taking a ski vacation to Zermatt, this is the best and only way to go! David managed to successfully coordinate travel arrangements and accommodations for our group of 13 with the greatest of ease. I cannot imagine trying to plan this sort of trip on my own. Everything was taken care of for us including train tickets, local lodging accommodations, equipment rental, restaurant reservations, and countless other tips for navigating a foreign country. David is very familiar with the town, the locals and the mountain. He is very passionate about the mountains and his job, and it shows in every detail. He was able to asses our varied skiing abilities and provide each of us with incredible and challenging courses that changed every day. We had seven children with us that ranged in age from 7 years old to 12 years old. I was a little nervous about skiing with my kids in Switzerland and Italy, since I did not know the terrain or conditions. David stepped in and was fantastic with all of the kids - whether they needed a little extra push (or a salami sandwich) - and was an invaluable asset to the whole group. I was amazed at how comfortable he was around all of us and just became part of the group. We even got to meet his lovely wife and adorable daughter one night when they came to babysit for us. I hope that I get to visit this amazing destination again someday. The pictures are beautiful, but you just have to see and experience it for yourself. It will truly take your breath away. It was the best family vacation of my life - and I can say, without question - David made it extra special."

"Our family went to Zermatt in January 2012 to celebrate my 60th birthday and the experience we had with Alpine Exposure and David Court exceeded all of our expectations. Starting with the trip planning stage, David was extremely responsive to all of my questions and tailored a trip that was perfect for us from the accommodations to the skiing, and dining. On the mountain he guided us across the entire resort and down to Italy, and he took my kids off-piste to find the powder. He arranged a memorable birthday dinner on the mountain at the Olympia Stubli, from where we sledded back to our apartment. The coffee and apple strudel afternoon break at Chez Vrony was a great rest stop. David graciously took care of all of the details, including making sure that a taxi picked us up at 5:30 am on our day of departure. Thank you, David, for helping us have the family ski trip of a lifetime!"

"Everyone knows Alpine Exposure is the absolute best way to see Chamonix and Zermatt, but what about someplace new? No problem! My buddies and I opted for the Dolomites in Italy and David had it wired: rental cars at the airport, a terrific hotel in Ortisei (right above the ski shop) and the Dolomiti Super Ski pass. David organized it all and was right there with us to make sure it was perfect. In case you don’t know, the Dolomiti Super Ski pass is good for 12 resorts and over 450 lifts! It was amazing to ski village-to-village around some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere every single day. And the bonus: David is a kick to ski with! Lunch anyone? We’d find these terrific little restaurants tucked up on the ski runs with delicious food, drink and killer views. Dinners and breakfasts were conveniently served at the hotel, where we got to meet the other guests. And the real kicker? The Dolomites are an incredible value. This ski vacation was a steal - all thanks to David at Alpine Exposure. Very highly recommended!"

"We had a blast in Zermatt. The resort was beautiful, the accommodation was very comfortable and the skiing was awe-inspiring. Our trip was perfect in every way because of David and his knowledge of the town, the mountain and the restaurants. Skiing in such a vast area was manageable because of his extensive experience. Trying to figure out where to go without him would have been incredibly intimidating and we would not have enjoyed the trip nearly as much. It was a wonderful adventure. Looking forward to next time!"
Julie & Doug Baker - 2012

"Chamonix was a phenomenal ski/snowboard experience. Although my favorite part of the trip was going to Courmayer, Italy and relaxing at night in the hot outdoor spa with the mountain background."
Francis Leung - 2012

"We had dreamed of skiing in the Alps for years and while we were eager to explore, we were also concerned with snow safety. David made the logistics effortless, getting us settled in Zermatt and oriented on the big mountain. He arranged for us to spend most our time on the snow with Jörg, a long-time Zermatt skier and expert instructor in the Zermatt Ski School. Jörg led us to untracked powder nearly a week after the last storm while challenging us to improve our skiing. It was a dream come true to be guided to local stashes of great snow with the added bonus of a semi-private lesson that gave us the tools to enjoy the skiing even more. A truly awesome trip!"
Jill Bryon & Dave Grattan - 2012

"David handled every detail of our family ski trip. He was personally invested in ensuring that we had the best ski experience, the best dining experience and were exposed to the local culture. He is a concierge extraordinaire, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a full service travel guide to many of the slopes of Europe."
David Batt - 2011

"My brother and I took a trip with Alpine Exposure to Chamonix in January 2011 and it was fantastic! I have skied a lot of resorts throughout the western US and Canada and this was a whole different experience. The thing that sticks out most in my mind was the sheer scale of the mountains – absolutely spectacular! I used to think of Mammoth and Snowmass as big mountains, but they are literally postage stamp size compared to the mountains around Chamonix. You have to see it to really appreciate it."
"The week we were there (in fact the whole winter) the snow conditions were pretty marginal. If we’d been on our own, we literally could have spent days trying to find good conditions and terrain just because the areas are so massive, but David was able to take us straight to locations where the snow was good and the terrain was what we were looking for."
"David’s local knowledge paid off throughout the trip. He got us hooked up with lift passes that were good for the entire Chamonix valley, plus Courmayeur and Verbier. He knew the local’s tricks like how to get a reservation for the tram at Grands Montets (no waiting in line), and got us hooked up with a great mountain guide who took us on a tour of the Valle Blanche - down a route the tourists don’t usually get to go. Plus he knows the good restaurants, bars, and shopping locations, etc."
"I imagine we could have put together a trip for a little less money on our own, but we’d have spent hours doing it and then half the time we were there just trying to learn the ropes. David made the whole thing super easy, tailored the trip to what we wanted to do, and all-in-all was a great host. I’d go again in a heartbeat!"
James Elliot - 2011

"After several ski trips to Europe on our own, we were lucky enough to connect with David who has been our best guide by far. He took care of every detail for our trips to Zermatt and Chamonix and we had a terrific vacation each time. He knows all the best hotels, restaurants, and ski runs and has many connections at both resorts. He is very thoughtful and very fun to ski (and apres-ski) with."
Dennis Forster - 2011

"We just returned from living for four years in Switzerland where we skied regularly each winter season. Our best trips and most wonderful memories resulted from trips that David planned for us. In addition to finding us superb accommodations, he anticipated and saw to every detail of our trip including making an excellent recommendation for our children's ski program, guiding us on the mountains, and planning special lunches and dinners at lovely local restaurants. David knows the area so well that he could anticipate and plan for many contingencies that we simply would not have understood otherwise. He has many contacts and was able to offer various recommendations for babysitters, massage therapy, and other services which we did not take him up on, but may be of interest to others".
"We particularly appreciated David's laid back style and his ability to 'read' the group. The first year we skied together, we were with other extended family members all with different levels of ski proficiency, and David managed to cater to everyone's needs and diverse interests. The second year we skied alone with David and we were amazed at how much territory we could cover in a relatively short time. Nevertheless he was always cautious about getting us back to pick up the kids from their classes. David also consistently maintained a keen attention to safety issues and developing weather condition and tailored the day's itinerary to our level."
Miguel Jorge & Lesley Schaffer - 2010

"Perfect in Everyway! The apartment was beautiful, the views were stunning, and the skiing was amazing. We couldn't have done it without you!"
Karen Lehrer - 2009

"Truly a feast for the body, mind, and soul. David has an instinct for where the best conditions will be on any given day. We consistently found great snow even when other skiers were settling for hardpack and crud. Our conversations about life, literature, and culture would have been memorable had they taken place anywhere, but the chalets and alpine huts of the Chamonix valley made them that much more special."
Charles Donelan - 2009

"The first trip was so much fun, I signed up for another one the followig year - this time to Verbier. Once again, Alpine Exposure took us to all the best spots on the mountain as well as the most popular clubs in the village."
Stacey Georgillas - 2008

"Absolutely Awesome! Alpine Exposure took care of every detail and made our ski vacation an incredible experience."
James Franco - 2008

"David provided a great vacation that we'll never forget."
Karen Middlestadt & Wayne Cretin - 2007

"The best vacation I ever had. I can't wait to go again next year."
