A Fantastic End to an Amazing First Guiding Season!

A snow- and smile-filled expedition to Ishpatina Ridge!

We’ve just finished up our official first full season of guiding winter trips, and couldn’t have asked for a better way to finish! In the first week of March, we received a great blast of beautiful wintery weather, with cold, clear nights, some beautifully sunny days, lots of wind and piles of snow (20+cm the first night alone!). We even had a temporary 2-day meltdown, which led to lots of drastically changing, constantly interesting conditions! In 8 days we traveled over 60kms across 7 lakes and portages, winding sections of the Montreal River, and the final 3-km bushwhack to the highest point in Ontario! Despite waist-high snow back in the bush, every member of our little group of 6 made it to the top, including first-time winter campers, and 68 years young Louis from Parry Sound!  Congratulations to all participants, and thanks for making our final trip of the season so memorable!

Photos coming soon!
