With an amazing Thanksgiving weekend behind us and the end of hunting season around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to sit down by the fire with a cup of coffee and express a few words of gratitude. With the help and support from our friends and members of the community, we successfully served a hot turkey dinner with all the trimmings to 35 people and kicked off an unforgettable weekend for our campers of football, snow and bow-hunting. We could not have accomplished it without the help of all the potato peelers, dish washers, turkey fryers, roll bakers and empty tummies. So, from our home to yours, THANK YOU for being a part of the memories made this season!
Traditionally, at this time of year, Elk Ridge would be getting ready to go into hibernation for the rest of winter. Chinook Pass has closed for the season and the Nile Valley will be changing from a bustling headquarters for hunting into a dormant winter refuge. This year, however, will be different. As new, full-time residents of Elk Ridge Campground, we are excited to spread the news that we will be staying open all year; We are open!
We are already booking reservations for Christmas and New Years, and are hoping for continued snow to fall to provide play space for outdoor adventurers and snow sport enthusiasts.
Additionally, we are “open” for scheduling massage appointments at our campground! We have transformed one of our cabins (“Mom’s Place”) into a tranquil space for me to do what I do best and Saturday marked the grand opening of the Spa at Elk Ridge. As a massage practitioner of 15 years, I am excited to bring my practice to our home and provide massage therapy to our campground guests and residents of Nile Valley. Currently, I am working with other talented professionals to create spa weekend getaways, bridal packages, health retreats and more. So…… please be looking for updates and announcements on on our Facebook page (facebook.com/spaatelkridge) and website (elkridgecampground.com).
“We are open” is a phrase with great significance this year. We are open this winter when Elk Ridge is normally closed. Our spa is now open and available for appointments. And lastly, we are open to your ideas and suggestions. Please let us know the winter activities you like to do so we can provide a getaway for you and your family to come to Elk Ridge and play.
Happy Trails (and holidays),
