The four of us came up for an end-of-the-year blow out/AWESOME New Years and SARATOGA RESORT did not disappoint! The snowmobiling was the best we have had in the last five years. Fresh powder, no crowds & moose sightings galore (even found a shed laying right on the trail) has made this a trip to remember. We had New Year’s dinner and party right at the resort with a dip in the hot springs @ midnight! Can’t think of a better way to start 2013. We have all decided this will be a annual tradition!
Thanks for everything—Jill, Mike, Kris & Tricia
We came out for three days of riding last year with a group from IL. One of the days was the Poker Run. What a great time! The snow was amazing while we were there. Every day was filled with tons of fresh tracks and deep pow pow. Several trails had 18 inches plus of fresh snow and the weather kept it crisp and fluffy. We had a crew of seven riders with us then and this year we are bringing out another 7. After a day of hard riding I can’t wait to sample the brew of the season in the bar, soak in the springs to soothe the muscles, and get a another taste of the homemade chili.
See you in February!
I just had to comment on our recent snowmobiling experience at the Saratoga Resort The attention to detail was the most rewarding. From the moment we received our email and letter informing us of the equipment the resort provides and the personal clothing we need to consider sledding not to mention what type of sandwiches each of us preferred to have at the lunch break. When we arrived all of the equipment and clothing we requested was waiting in our room and the correct size. The guides made sure we were safe and had the knowledge to operate the snowmobiles. Not to mention we had the good fortune to be briefed by Doc Janssen on the sleds capabilities and if needed spare repair parts available on the machine. My son and his friend have commented more than once what a rush. For teenage boys to say this put a smile on my face. You can bet we will return to the resort this summer for the Atv rides on the same trails.
From my experience I will always remember the Views, Hot Springs and the Microbrew afterwards at the resort.
