/ Martin Moran courses
I had a week with Martin in the alps everything was spot on...
I went with him last year and had a great time, will prob be going again next year.
I too did the intro to winter climbing, food was great and plenty of it (always important in my opinion!) chalet was nice and the company was good too.
The guides change, but Ken Applegate if he's guiding was good and taught me some tricks for summer work too.
Only thing they couldn't rustle up was lots of snow last year but that's not exactly something anyone can fix apart from Santa maybe!
And about the same number of years ago, I did a Winter Mountaineering week with him - same comments, learnt a lot. It worked out as one day with Martin, two days with Victor Saunders, and two days with Andy Nisbet - so you weren't going to get better than that. I'd expect Martin to have the same high standards 20 years on.
