- 10 days trip: Mountain guide (8 days of snowboarding / skiing) and travel during the whole stay, 24 hours with Gabriel and Laura, the creators of Life in White. No other company offers this care and service, the same ones that will accompany you on the mountain, will guide you throughout the day, because the adventure with us does not end in the mountain.
