Looking Back and Looking Forward
Just yesterday owner Gaylen Byker and local skier and long-time Stokely volunteer Ronn Hann lead a group of 26 adventurous skiers/snowshoers on a wilderness expedition they will not soon forget. Gaylen and Ronn portered their snowshoes to the Hakon Lein Cabin, followed by trail groomer Alex on his Bombardier 180 and finally the skiers. Nothing like a perfectly groomed trail to ski up to the Hakon Lein Cabin!
After a snack Ronn guided them to the breathtaking Ice Cliff Frozen Waterfalls. They ended with lunch at the Cabin and then a downhill ski back to the lodge. Guests comments: "Best ever trip to Hakon Lein Cabin." "The natural beauty was astounding with the snow covered trees and ice formations."
For a wonderful Valentine’s weekend, you must take in the Wine-Tasting event on Saturday, February 15. Vinnie Greico a wine expert wrote in his column in the Sault Star:
"Gifted winemaker Thomas Bachelder, a Burgundy specialist, will be at Stokely for the event to pour some of his wines. They will be accompanied by the Jackson-Triggs Grand Reserve Sparkling Wine and the Inniskillin Vidal Ice Wine. Thomas, who makes wine not only in Ontario but also in France and Oregon, is a wizard with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. At $35 per person for the tasting with appetizers, (excluding tax and gratuities), you are in for an exceptional experience – to purchase a bottle of each of the wines yourselves would cost more than $200! Stay for dinner, and the cost for the tasting and dinner is $80, and well worth it. Wines will be available for purchase to accompany dinner."
Wine tasting and Stokely appetizers begin at 5:00. Call Stokely at 705-649-3421
or 866 786-5359 for reservations.
