100% Money Back Snow Guarantee!

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Great news! Starting today we are offering a 100% money back guarantee on our snow conditions!

We will be introducing a snow conditions page on our website, and also highway road sign so we can accurately share the trail conditions! The snow, or lack thereof, on the highway is a poor way to determine the conditions on the trails and backcountry, and we have been trying to find a better way to inform everyone about the true snow conditions.

To back up our rating system, we are offering a 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE! That’s right, if you book a vacation with us, and the snow conditions deteriorate before your arrival, we will contact you and offer you a 100% refund!

We are prepared at this point to state that we will have great sledding conditions well into mid April, so book your snowmobile vacation WITH CONFIDENCE as far as April 15th and possibly beyond. You have nothing to lose, as we will refund 100% of your reservation if the snow conditions deteriorate.

Current conditions are near perfect, and we have the pictures, videos and customer testimonials to prove it!

Snow Conditions March 27th, 2011

Monday, March 28th, 2011

The conditions in Central are in some ways better than they have been all winter.  The powder in the backcountry is steady building up steadily.  I have to say that there is more on Hodges than there has been all winter with the exception of the top.  Have a look at the video taken coming down there trail (sorry for my unsteady handheld camera work).  For those of you who have never been to Hodges before take note that I am rolling downhill and braking for much of the video.  This will give you an idea how steep it is.  Yesterday we were through Hodges Pass as well.  For those who I have taken through there this season, take note how much more snow there is on this trip, and no getting stuck even though there is lots of powder!

Excellent Sledding!!!

Not much explaination needed for this post!  These were taken yesterday on the Gaff Topsails where we found a few new playspots.  We were able to clip along at 50 – 60 KM per hour for most of the day.  We saw too many caribou to count along with three moose on Mary March Brook.  Can’t wait to get back there soon!

Hodges Tour March 19th, 2011

Just returned from the Hodges tour and conditions were awesome.  About 3 inches of snow fell at the chalets but well over a foot fell just four KMs north of the chalets on Cornfield Road.  Powder on the trails around Hodges was almost two feet deep for most of the ways.  Hodges Hill and Hodges Pass both had enough powder to challenge even the Expedition.  We all had a ball!  Its still snowing in there too!  The attached picture was taken on the North side of Hodges.

Only one way in!

Hello all,

Just a note to update you on the snow conditions on the Gaff Topsails.  There is lots of snow and ice to last a good while yet.  Upper Mary March Brook is solid and good to go.  We didn’t run down the brook today but I was on the upper section (wish I had my Phazer!).  The lower section is running in places but that’s OK because you can get off it anytime you want anyways and all the fun is on the upper section.   We saw several small herds of caribou and yet another Arctic Hare today.  Both species are bouncing back!  I took a bunch of pictures but it was stormy so they didn’t turn out well.  I couldn’t resist posting the picture of one of the cabins at the Summit though.  You can’t see him but there is a man looking out a small trapdoor in the peek of the roof.  It is the only way he can get in and out of him cabin as it is nearly buried!  One more storm and I’d say the only thing showing will be the smoke stack…if that!  There is still lots of snow North of the chalets so if you are wondering, don’t worry.  Winter is not over yet!  I will be posting again after the Hodges tour tommorrow with some pics!

Lots of snow!

Hello everyone. Despite the couple warm days we had there is still lots of snow here. Check this picture out taken at Hodges Pass three days ago. My legs are straight and I still wasn’t touching the ground. I was back there this morning to check it out and the going is awesome…a foot or so of powder wouldn’t go astray though. We have been flat out with the chalets and tours since late January. Thanks to everyone who came out so far.

Lots of snow!
