Our trips are conducted in a very safety conscious way. We spend time prepping the trails before a trip by removing branches and blown down trees.
We go out before a trip to check the ice if we are planning to go on the lake by using an ice chisel to find out the thickness of the ice. We often mark our trails with fir boughs so we can find our old base in case of snow storms.
There is always a snowmobile available in case of an emergency so someone could be evacuated from the bush immediately if need be.
We carry a couple fire starters at all times, a satellite phone and two-way radios for communication among the guides and snowmobile support drivers. We do check in calls once or twice a day to Mahoosuc’s home base so any emergencies from people’s homes can be relayed on to them on the trail.
We always carry a first aid kit with us.
If weather or trails are unsafe for any reason we can always adjust our itinerary to continue to conduct a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests.
Our trips are alcohol free for both guests and guides.
I can’t say enough about what a great trip this has been! It was such a pleasure to see the way a trip really should be run. You move so quietly and efficiently to accomplish setting up camp, producing wonderful meals, taking care of everyone.
