Happy New Year!
We are excited to be looking forward to the 2012 canoe season. This is the time of year we start booking permits and trips for our guests.
This year there are some changes to the BWCA permit lottery system. The BWCA permit lottery is the first chance at booking permits for Moose Lake and Fall Lake entry points only. This is a big change from the past when you could enter the lottery for all entry points. The Moose Lake and Fall Lake entry points have a few different type of permits that can be reserved. You can book a overnight paddle, Day Use Motor of Over night Motor permit. The motor permits are in high demand so they kept the lottery to help spread the permits out among those that are interested in them. To enter the lottery an application must submitted between Dec 19th and Jan. 19th. Spirit of the Wilderness is here to help you with all your permit booking needs.
All other permits can be reserved starting January 25th, 2012 at 9 am. If you would like Spirit of the Wilderness ot book your permit, please call us sooner than later so we can make sure to get the entry point and date you are requesting. Some entry points are in high demand and we want to be able to help you with getting these booked.
We are currently getting a little snow this afternoon. What a nice way to start the new year. Soon we will have enough snow for the cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and dog sledding. There is almost enough snow for snowmobiling, for those that like to enjoy the area outside the BWCA.
Hope 2012 is good for you.
