Lew & Mark – CBS
Chalet Rental – Snowmobile Tour

March 28, 2013
Thanks again Paul,
Mark, Des, Andrew. Joe and I had the repeat pleasure of free riding with our friend Paul Rose, the owner of Riverfront and the Ambassador of snowmobiling in Central Newfoundland, truly a great Father and Son multi-generational experience that will not be forgotten. Having made the mandatory West Coast pilgrimage two weeks ago my sledding’ Buddy Des and I asked each other why drive the extra kilometers when you can experience the greatest terrain you could ever ask to ride minutes from the best accommodations anywhere in Atlantic Canada. Listen to Paul’s Blog his report on Snow Conditions are truly accurate, 8" of fresh spring powder today, the season is not done in Central wow!
Thanks from all of us.

Awesome riding at Hodges! March 28th

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

It’s Thursday evening now and we are just getting back from Hodges.  Actually most of them didn’t want to leave and stayed back for another couple hours.  This group has been here before and know how different it can be just 10 km North.  Still they were blown away by the difference…it’s like someone turned on the snow switch at about 1000ft up.  Here at the chalets there is no fresh snow and we had to pick around exposed dirt here and there to get in.  However, 20 minutes later we were carving 6 inches or fresh powder on a bottomless base of snow.  As said on previous posts there are a few places where the wind took most of the snow off of the tops of hills but as you can see from the pictures it is still winter wonderland here.  The same group is headed to the Gaff Topsails (White Hills area) tomorrow.  If Hodges blew them away with the riding the Gaff surely will.  Expect a testimonial later this evening on the blog from them about todays trip.  We had a few stucks today climbing around the hills!  Enjoy the pics!
