Welcome to Spring! Although its sure looking and feeling a lot like winter up here…
Despite having some snow still, the snowmobile trails are closed for the winter and therefore we are now closed on Sundays until Mother’s Day.
We’re quickly turning our thoughts to the upcoming boating season so let Sally know about any requests you have for your toys! If you’re thinking about adding to the fleet this year, we’d be happy to help you find the perfect fit for you and the family.
The ice is still pretty thick but if you’re out playing, stay away from any open or running water – stay safe and play wisely! Sir Sam’s ski hill is now open weekends only, but the Haliburton Forest is still open for winter activities.
We hope everyone had a great March Break!
Shhh its a secret! But we want to wish a very happy birthday to Richard today (this is what happens when we have access to the website). After listening to insistence that this milestone was not going to happen, Leah still managed to surprise him with a great cake Saturday night! Happy Birthday – we hope you have the best year yet!
In cottage news, what a change in temperature from the weekend! It was another beautiful weekend to be up at the cottage with lots of snow on the lakes and in the forest, and snowmobile trails in good condition. This week looks a lot like the temperatures from last week again but warming up in time for the weekend so come on up and enjoy a bit of winter wonderland here.
Have a great week!
A month later and we finally have great conditions for snowmobiling!! The trails are open and there are lots of people travelling the lakes. The crew here even got out for a weekend ride last weekend! Please be aware that there are areas of very deep slush. Mississagua Lake has been staked from the old Trapper’s Inn bay. The BDSC hosted its annual “Enjoy your Ride” Trail BBQ this past weekend at the 509 and E108 junction…it was a bit chilly and probably gave the BBQers a good test to see if they could keep the food warm!
We have been very busy not only with sleds but also getting started on boat repairs to help ensure a smooth start to the summer season that will be here before we know it. If you have any requests for work to be done to your water toys, please let Sally know so that we can get everyone back in the water in a timely fashion.
Our hours for the rest of February and March are 9-4, seven days a week while the snowmobile trails are open. Once they close, we will be closed again on Sundays.
If you aren’t one for snowmobiling but want to get out and enjoy this beautiful, snowy season, the area has lots to offer with ski hills around us, lakes with permitted ice fishing (please check local regulations), community center activities and ice rink thanks to our wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to keep it in such good condition, and lots of areas to explore via cross-country ski or snowshoe that are hard to get to during other times of the year.
Finally, the snow has gotten quite heavy and is piling up on roofs quickly. Please contact us if you have any concerns and we can help you make arrangements to have someone clear your roof.
All the best and we look forward to seeing everyone out enjoying this great season!
