First off I would like to say a belated THANK-YOU to all our summer season visitors and friends. This past rafting season was fantastic…both weather wise and business wise! We must be doing it right when everyone, hands down, walk away with a big smile on their face saying it was the best day they ever had! What a sweet business we have here, and such a pleasure to run. This Fall, the chalets have been super busy with a 70% occupancy rate right up until today so word is getting out. But now my sights are set on sledding, especially since the November edition of Sledworthy hit the shelves. We made the cover! Too boot we made the cover on a trip we had on the first weekend of January! Last year we rode from January first right up until the end of April. As always, this year we will be having our snow guarantee for the month of April, so if you are one to put your sled away on March 31st, you are missing out on one of the best parts of winter….April. I reposted last years blog post of the Sledworthy trip below with some different pics for your enjoyment. Hopefully this year, like last year I will get to ring in the new year on sled. If you are one of the lucky people who are booked for New Years Eve, keep an eye on my blog post for snow conditions because you might want to bring out your sleds! Hope to see ya soon!

Well it was a great time having the Sledworthy crew out for an awesome weekend of riding! I officially accepted my Sledworthy award up on Hodges. The boys were tempted to drive on to the West Coast when they saw how little snow was around the chalets. Lets just say they were glad they stayed and they will be back! We spent two days ripping up the backcountry. There were some places we couldn’t get because we need another few feet of snow to get there but the roads trails are in awesome shape and the ditch bangin is coming along too….lots of deep powder along the higher roads. We all opened up across 9 mile bog with plenty jumps along the way. The West end of Barrens Pond is starting to drift in…not like it will be a bit later but we all had fun ripping that up for an couple hours. There were some nice jumps too as you can see from the pics. The climb to the ice castle was good to go too! I still haven’t been to the Gaff but the boys in chalet #3 were and said there was lots of powder and huge drifts. I hope to get there over the couple days. I have been on many of the larger lakes now and there is plenty ice and plenty of snow on them so that’s all good to go. It’s shaping up to be a great winter of riding here in Central!
