January 28th Update

Monday, January 28th, 2013

While things have improved significantly I am still going to leave the conditions as good… just to be safe.  All the roads and trails are in really good shape.  The ditch banging has been steadily improving as well.   I took a bunch of young guys into Hodges in search of powder play and found plenty.  We spent about two hours of our run hill climbing between the trees last Saturday and had a ball.  I pasted one of their testimonials below.  Almost lost them though….once again due to people in Grand Falls – Windsor assuming there is no snow in the backcountry.   It’s a constant battle with that!  Anyhow I convinced then to stay and were very pleased to say the least.  I posted a picture of a truck which went off the road just in from the chalets about 500 meters.  That’s what happens when you drive on snowmobile trails LOL!  I went in and hauled them out with the back hoe all the same.    

 

“We arrived in Grandfalls January 21st, 2013 with high expectations of lots of snow , we booked the riverfront chalets and a snowmobile tour for 2 days . The conditions along the highway and in Grandfalls were very discouraging , Also we stopped into  town to pick up supply’s for our stay,and the local residents were encouraging us to go more west to find the snow as they thought the snowmobiling conditions in Grandfalls were horrible because of the amount of Snow in town ,  well let me tell you that DO NOT go by the conditions close to the highway or in the town of Grandfalls because Paul and the rest of the gang from riverfront chalets will bring you to the snow and let you have the time of your life , myself and my buddies were very thankful that we stuck  it out and gave Riverftont Chalets a chance and never ventured on further to the west coast !”
