It seems a little late to be wishing anyone Happy New Year right now but here we are, midway through the first month of 2015 and we are just coming up for air. Amid the blur of the last few weeks, between ice and snow storms and groomers and chainsaws working overtime, we have taken a moment to look up and understand what a wonderful season this is turning out to be.
If we could describe the energy that has surrounded us over the last few weeks or the overall vibe from the flow of friends, guests and returning crews to the Lodge it would simply be “celebratory”! The BBQ and Smokehouse is in full regale, our new and seasoned taps are flowing freely and the work to get everything moving in the same direction is paying off.
The storms that have cycled through have left our glorious mountains and lakes gleaming with a shimmering white blanket of snow, but it has been challenging to say the least. The buzz of excitement for riding and the overall giddiness of the riders has been met with such determination, that it makes for light hearts when all is said and done. The clearing and grooming to get things underway has been worth every hour of labor when you stop and realize the joy this safe passage creates for so many. A labor of love no doubt.
We are so pleased with the growing support in our fifth year of being open and have felt surrounded by the outpouring from afar and from our local community at large. This season and all it entails couldn’t happen without all of the consistent efforts and constant vigilance of our ever loyal staff and returning crews, all who have made Lake Parlin Lodge and Cabins a mecca retreat for everyone in this little piece of frozen heaven.
Until then, ride safe, stay healthy and thank you ALL for a great start to 2015!
