Axel and his team would like to warmly thank all our guests who have visited our apartments and resort over the past year! It was our pleasure to welcome every one of you.
Last year was a special year in many ways. The entire world and economy were affected by COVID-19 so it was a big step for us and our Red Cariboo Resort as well as for the Red Cariboo Apartments as almost all of the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted progressively. This was an important development to return to pre-pandemic normality. Anyway, due to the remoteness of Anahim Lake and the less infrastructure and population density, we didn´t notice many of the virus restrictions.
During the long, hard winter, which extended into June with lots of snow, rain, and an extremely late thaw period, our construction team continued to work diligently on completing the interior of our cabins. In addition, we have continued to train our horses so that our guests will go on relaxed rides in all seasons in the future and enjoy this incredible adventure the most. We want to create as many unique memories as possible!
Apparently, not only do our horses know that we feed them extremely tasty hay but also a cow moose and her calf who visited us and our horses almost daily while we fed and happily helped themselves to the hay from the horses. In recent years, it has almost been a tradition for the moose to say "HI" to us each winter.
Of course, we also tried out our winter activity equipment and went ice fishing, snowshoe hiking, and cross-country skiing.
Our team also went on a long hike to a remote hut to spend the night, dragging the luggage and equipment on sleds. We developed new directions and maps of our locations, which should make it easier for our guests to find their way around. Cozy hours, wearing thick and snug winter clothing by the open fire, sometimes even on the frozen river, rounded off our winter experiences.
