“Dear Reini, We would like to thank you so much for your help, at such short notice, in making our recent skiing holiday in Grindelwald a wonderful success. Our son, Toby loved the dual-ski and Dave made the whole experience absolutely fantastic. Our dreams of a family ski holiday became a reality. Dave's approach to Toby (and our daughter, Lara) was perfect and he quickly gained their trust. He was so kind, friendly, thoughtful, professional, organised and confident that it made our time skiing such a pleasure. Dave obviously was very experienced with the equipment, knew the ski area well and was always accommodating for all Toby's needs and desires. Toby does face many challenges related to his condition on a daily basis, but whilst skiing last week he was the happiest we have seen him for quite some time. We would whole-heartedly recommend Dave to any family in need of support with adaptive skiing and would happily provide a reference in the future. He was simply great! Kind regards“ Kate and Andrew Maurice
