River Rat BashWell it was a chilly May long weekend but Mountain Madness Tours braved the cold conditions and got out to Grande Cache for some epic white-water rafting in the snow with Wild Blue Yonder.
It was Wild Blue Yonder’s annual River Rat Bash event. Around 100 people from all over Alberta turned up for some white-water rafting and a hilarious night of entertainment consisting of a mouth watering steak BBQ and a nice big fire to warm us all up. Local Edmonton comedian Kevin McGrath then got everyone rolling on the floor with laughter until after midnight.
After a well deserved sleep – in, we checked out Sulphur Gates. This lookout gives you a bird’s eye view of the junction of the Sulphur and Smoky rivers, the surrounding cliffs and snow capped mountains in the distance.
From there we went on a horse drawn chariot ride through some forest trails up the side of a mountain and back. Some quality relaxing with a view of the surrounding mountains was then in order as we sat around a fire at the horse ranch drinking hot chocolate before returning to Edmonton later that evening.
What a great weekend.
This is an annual event, so book in early for next year’s River Rat Bash on May long weekend.

Just like Jasper but without the crowds.
