Very sore today!  The four of us (me, the Peyton Bros and Tom Caine’s) went to the White Hills – Barneys Brook area of the Gaff.  I had a full loop planned including Mary March Brook to show the boys around but we didn’t even get half way.  The riding was so good we couldn’t pass up the bowls and hills along the way.  We were waist deep and beyond all day!  It was more like a day on sea-doos rather than sleds!  The play spots along the sides of the plateau are just endless…..and impossible to pass by.  I’d say we had more miles from spinning tracks distance traveled!  Thanks God for our snow bungee because with about 100 stucks, at least, we wouldn’t have lasted the 12 hours or riding.  A long day indeed…..we were still on Barneys brook when we lost all light with a night ride back.  The boys were blown away by the terrain and the conditions.  It does not matter how good a rider you are, there  are countless lines that will be plenty challenging.  In all the excitement I managed to get a few good pics but if you look at Tom Caine’s (Gander) Facebook page I am sure he will have lots more.  We will soon have to plan another trip to show the boys a few more highlights the Gaff has to offer. 

We have one chalet open this weekend due to a cancelation…..I expect it will go quickly after this post.  We also have some weekday openings for next week.  We are full during Mid Winter Bivver weekend but we do have one sled rental available.
