Winter Is Still Hanging In!

April Snow fall

April snowApril snowThe last vestiges of winter are finally departing Northern Manitoba (we hope!). Yes, it’s nearly the end of May yet winter has chosen to hang on! Gangler’s Lodge winter caretaker Jamie mentioned he is seeing a see-saw pattern of melting and freezing over the last two weeks with daytime temps still hovering around April snow0º C (32º F) and nighttime temps are still below freezing. A warming trend keeps teasing us and hopefully settles in for good by next week. Our ice-out is definitely on the late side. The real story of the winter has been the amount of snowfall we’ve received. We still have areas with up to 4’ of snow with some drifts as high as 8’. We’d guesstimate this to be 40% more than normal. These mid April photos show the snowfall halfway up the cabin screens and staff door at the lodge. All of this snow should mean excellent lake levels for our summer and fall explorations.

April snowWhile checking out Blackfish Lake, Jamie got another photo and video of caribou crossing Blackfish Lake. The caribou have been plentiful in our area this winter and we hope that indicates a strong migration for our Caribou trips in the Fall.

2020 Season Update and Reservations
Gangler’s is constantly monitoring the Covid situation and the US/Canadian border closure. The latest word is the closure has been extended until June 21. Manitoba, with 1.37 million people, has maintained a low incidence of cases with under 300 cases total, and only one new case in the last 8 days. Manitoba has begun their phased-in reopening plan and now getting ready for Phase 2. Gangler’s is planning on being open this season, we’re just awaiting word of the border reopening. We have a great season planned at the North Seal thru Oct. 3 and we are looking forward to another busy Fall with our amazing Northern Lights. Our charter airline has special cleaning and traveling protocols already in place and we will have stringent policies for disinfection and monitoring guests and staff. As for social distancing – we are over 230 miles away from the closest road! You can not find a safer place and no crowds!

Travel Insurance That Delivers
The most common complaint we hear about Travel Insurance is it really doesn’t cover what they promise. And sadly, that is something many have experienced in today’s world. We have personally selected the IMG Signature travel insurance from Global Rescue. With the added upgrade “Cancel for any Reason”, the Signature plan covers many cancellations up to 100% and ‘Cancel for any Reason’ up to 75%. Yes, even a pandemic. It’s the best insurance on the market. You can rest assured of having proper coverage when traveling to Gangler’s. We also offer the supplemental Global Rescue Medical Evacuation insurance at an incredibly low price.
