    Canada>Ontario->EGL->2020 > Valens Gearing Up for Winter Hang: Jan 10-12th, 2020

    EGL New Years at Valens 2020



    Seasons greetings all!

    I just wanted to invite one and all to our annual EGL New Year's "Gearing Up for Winter" hang.

    Hopefully we'll be able to do a repeat of the porkapalooza, expanding it slightly to include a scrumptious taco-fest!

    Let's hope for some good sub-zero weather and knee deep snow.

    Happy and safe holidays to you and yours and we'll see you in the new year.


    Chard

    Don’t know if we could ever top last year’s feast. I’m hoping to make it for at least one night.

    I'll have to see about changing some plans so I can make this one.

    Some good news. Looks like Ontario Parks has made some improvements. Looks like you can reserve back country sites and print receipt 2 weeks ahead of time. I'm assuming that means we won't have to wait for the office to open anymore.

    I looked that over as well Luvy, the advertising hype says all parks... which means that some of them would need to change their policies. However when I went through the list the one notable exception was that French River was not on the list. I assume that means you still can't do reservations there, I suspect we will find other exceptions as we explore the new site a bit.

    I just got off the phone with Ontario Parks Reservations and got the following info (Link to Ont Parks, last tab "Backcountry Reservation")


    • Interior permits for the following parks can be booked online and printed at home (French River Provincial Park, Lake Superior Provincial Park, Missinaibi Provincial Park (River), Spanish River & Biscotasi Lake Provinical Park, Temagami Cluster, Wabakimi Provincial Park and Woodland Caribou Provincial Park). Printed permits are sufficient "proof" of registration for Park officials.
    • The remainder of parks like Algonquin still require registering at the park office.
