We have been lucky enough to tour with Trek Climb Ski (Aspen) on numerous occasions. Nick and his team have mastered the job of welcoming all sorts of people/groups into their marvelously managed, perfectly challenging and very much fun fold!

Initially I enjoyed the tour as a "single", then I returned with my husband as a "couple" and since we have invited the 3 kids as a "family"!

It is such a special place to ski/board and in Nicks teams capable hands there couldn't be a better holiday!

Really know the mountain

TCS offers a remarkable package for skiers and boarders who want to get the most out of a North American ski experience. By choosing Aspen-Snowmass, TCS is offering outstanding ski terrain diversity with one of the best serviced ski towns in the world. From hiking the Bowl at Highlands to guided tuition on the bumps and groomers, TCS offers it all. A real feature of their tours is the very high standard of guides. They know the mountains like they were born there and are all very good at passing on skill improvements - and some of them are exceptional. The TCS tours also have a strong attention to detail - meaning that things almost always go according to plan. Overall, TCS offers exceptional value. I took my first two US trips with TCS almost a decade ago and several seasons later I'm still learning from them.

I've skied with Nick Farr and his super team for the past five years and each tour has been better than the last. The guides are 'the tops' and the groups are flexible, small, friendly and most importantly, we all improve our skiing ability while having the hugest amount of fun.

Great touring with Nick and his crew

I've had the pleasure of doing two tours of Aspen with TCS and am heading over for tour number three in January 2011. I introduced my daughter to the tour in January 2009 and she is coming with me again 2011.

The guiding is totally professional, we are stretched to the limits of our abilities but always feel safe (well a few runs with Simon tested that theory, but what a blast it was anyway!). It's definitely taken my skiing to new heights.

And off the mountain, great town, great company and great fun.

Pimpin!

I have travelled to Aspen 3 times with Trek Climb Ski and have had a ball every trip. I would recommend it to all snow lovers who want to ski with like minded people and have have some brilliant fun too. Don't worry about coming on your own - you'll soon be part of the TCS family.

All the team are very knowledgeable and work hard at making sure you get what you want out of your holiday, as well as improving your skiing!

Come see for yourself!

I keep going back. I love the mountains ,tour organisers, guides and my fellow guests. It is like a family reunion having skied 8 times with some of them.

Skiing with people of similar ability or better and with quality guides who have really improved my skiing over the years, plus their knowledge of the local terrain (mine is pretty good by now) is the way to do it.

Group apres activities and the company of the guests is the cream on top of the skiing, and if you want to do your own thing it's no problem.

In 2011 will be my 6th trip with Trek, Climb and Ski as I am very satisfied with the tour. As much instructions as one wishes (I feel there is always room for improvement) but there is lots and lots of skiing miles. We ski approximately 5 to 6 hours a day on varied terrain with a group of skiers of similar ability. I like the aspect that one can move from various levels and ski as much as one is capable of. Some only ski till the lunch break, whilst others start after lunch due to the activities of the previous night!!!! The guides are all very helpful and many have been to Aspen/Snowmass many times.

I would recommend this tour for anyone who is a keen skier (as I am). It really improves your skiing and takes you out of your comfort zone.

I have enjoyed 12 years of Aspen tours with Nick Farr and have always had a wonderful time with great guides and excellent accommodation. I think they have to be the best value ski trips on the planet.

The advice on skiing techniques which the guides provide has been a great help in improving my ski style. The social side has been very enjoyable and I have made many friends from among the groups over the years.

Aspen is a wonderful place to ski with great variety of slopes and conditions from immaculate groomed slopes to deep powder and moguls. It is also a lovely town full of good restaurants and interesting shops, and of course the occasional sight of a celebrity.

Great tour, great fun, and all with a great group of people (the guides and the guests).

The guides really know these mountains, and will take you to those runs that only the true locals could ever find. If you are anything like me and occasionally feel hesitant at the top of a run, these guys are really good at building up your confidence level. My skiing has improved in leaps and bounds since doing my first tour 5 years back.

Highly recommended!

I did a tour with Nick and his crew in Jan 2009. The accommodation and transfers were great. The guides took us all over the four mountains and could not have been more helpful. They organised lots of apres ski stuff as well. I could not have been more pleased with the outcomes.
