New Season, New Program

Hello all past, current and future Friends of Rocky Mountain Escape!

We recognize that chatter from the blog has gone dark in recent months, perhaps it is merely that we are not used to having the pleasure of hosting so many wonderful people during our “shoulder” seasons? No matter, we’ve a moment to write now and alas, it is the start of a new season. Wait . . . what? 30cm of snow in 3 hours, and I just started putting our winter gear away!! Well, what would the first day of Spring be like at Rocky Mountain Escape without a little surprise from Mother Nature, eh?

So, amidst the changes that the melting snow is sure to bring, ahem . . . someday soon, we are happy to announce exploration into a new program along with our new season. Now, there has been some interest over the past several years from many of our guests and visitors who have voiced questions about the mystical world behind the scenes of the ‘Escape. Questions about what it was like to start this place up and how we maintain it today. Sometimes, those questions have led to a deeper desire to come out and see a different side of the ‘Escape, to maybe venture into the intricacies of what it would be like to host and run an ecotourism operation such as ours, or maybe just come out and have a complete disconnect for a week or two.

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to don the apron and cook on our beautiful wood stove  IMG_0482 or to pick up the splitting axe and prove one’s mettle by the strength of your back and the sweat off your brow?

Maybe you’ve a suppressed need to master the art of “roughin’ it” in the wild outdoors, completely off grid as we did during construction. Well, of course, there was outdoor plumbing and we’ve always had running water, one merely had to “run’n get it”. Okay, maybe that last bit’s not too high on anyone’s list at the moment. As for the others…

Behold; the “Friends of Rocky Mountain Escape” program.

As a Friend of Rocky Mountain Escape, you will immerse yourself in our small, relatively remote ecotourism operation. As our Special Guest, you will have the unique opportunity to experience the lifestyle inherent with hosting like-minded travelers in a mountain wilderness setting. Whether you’re looking for a week or two, or a month or maybe longer for a more intimate immersion, our Friends programs run at various times throughout the year. Each season offers different windows of opportunity with which to view and live in our world. An alternative way to “get-away” without the expense of a holiday, if you will.

If our Friends program sounds appealing to you, please contact us for further information and details.

Until next time, Happy Trails!

  1. I’d love to come again..but alas I’m gonna be a dad and have a baby girl on the way.. think it was easier felling trees with Ron in the snow at midnight… all the best..Kieran

    • Congrats, Kieran! I’m sure you will be sending me a photo or two of your new baby when she makes her way into the world, yes? You, and your family, would always be welcome up here, Kieran! I promise, no falling trees at midnight (one of us has more sense!) . . . but no guarantees that we wouldn’t be gathering firewood in the snow.
