Spring is in the air

I know..... it has been a while again since I made a contribution. Things are still hoppin here as we transition from winter activities to the summer. Have the first 2007 group coming to paintball this Saturday AND our first wedding reception in the Lodge at Seven Oaks the same day.
We are adding to the fleet of canoes and buses this spring for our full service canoe/kayak/tube float business. If you have never been on a float I think you would really enjoy it....give it a try. You can make a reservation for anytime May 1 thru October and the earlier the better to make sure we have the equipment on the day you want to go. It is a popular summer activity!
Also a reminder that we are doing our normal Friday After Five in Coal Creek Lounge..... though we may take a few weeks off this spring .... we'll keep you posted on that.
Our Moto X race weekends are back to back.......last weekend of April for Moto X only and first weekend of May for Moto X and Quads! Lots of action those weekends.
See you at Seven Oaks!

Ended the Season with a SPLASH

Been a while since I updated the here goes. With the temps what they are today and tomorrow following the temps we saw over the weekend, we will very PROBABLY NOT re open for any more riding or tubing this season.

It was a great year in spite of the great challenges mother nature presented. December - warm and no snow. January begins with rain on New Years Eve and New Years Day so closed then. Had the FRIGID temps weekend in February then more sleet, rain and ice in February followed by the two biggest snow falls of the season in back to back weeks. Ended Sunday March 11 with good conditions and 60 degrees. Thru it all we worked hard to give the best conditions possible and are proud of what we were able to do.
A big thanks to our season pass holders and all of you that came as individuals, families and groups to have fun at Seven Oaks this winter.

Another big thanks to the Great Seven Oaks Winter Staff (ski and tubing lift operators, food service staff, ski and board instructors, rental staff, bar staff, snow making staff), the Seven Oaks Ski Patrol for a successful winter.

And let me publicly thank Joel, Steve and Ken who make everything happen behind the scenes and put in soooo many hours to pull off a successful season.
Saturday was Halloween day and if you were on site you saw a big part of the staff in their Halloween costumes.
Then yesterday we were coerced into having our first ever Spring Splash! Here are some photos of the event.

We are looking forward to next winter but right now .....Paintball, Canoe, Kayak, River Tube, Tent Camping, Mountain bike riding, Mt bike races and Moto X are now on our minds. See you at Seven Oaks and thanks again for visiting us.

Opened on schedule at 10 this morning. Parking lot is filling up. Did not groom the Freeway or Drop Zone.....left it powder for you. Spent two hours digging out the tubing lift from about 3 to 4 feet of snow but it is open and in use now. Here are a couple pics. Remember the last Late Nite for this season is TONIGHT. Drive careful.......some roads are crappy!
