The property is managed primarily by our son, Paul, who lives in the house in front of the cabin. He knows the valley better than many lifelong residents, and can guide you to the best restaurants, untracked snow stashes, mountain bike trails, fishing hot spots, and locations for wildlife viewing. He also knows the local hiking/climbing/fishing/river guides, and can arrange babysitting services, vehicle shuttles, child activities, community event tickets, etc.
