Our front desk crew was lucky enough to try off-roading with our friends at Alpine Adventures over the weekend. It was POURING, so we weren’t sure what to expect. The top and sides of the Pinzgauer were closed as we drove from Alpine Adventures to the off-roading course, so we did not get wet. When we got to the course, we all decided to open the sides so we could really see what was going on. The driver (Jesse) cranked up the tunes and gave us a little taste of the terrain before stopping at the start of the Skyrider zipline course. We all got out and walked across some hanging bridges and got a good view of one of the ziplines. Once back in the Pinzgauer, Jesse took us out onto the “meat” of the course. He backed us up hills so we were looking straight down into mud in front, and up to the sky in back! The 6-wheel drive vehicle handled the mud like a champ. We bumped and bounced over some pretty incredible trails. There were 3 kids onboard (I’m guessing maybe 4, 5, and 7 years old) who hooted and hollered and screamed for the driver to go faster! They were having the time of their lives! The mud was REALLY deep as it had been pouring for hours, and we eventually did get stuck. It was just a short walk out though to where the Alpine Adventures van picked us up. We enjoyed our adventure immensely and highly recommend this trip – even on a rainy day. Incidentally, I am very prone to motion sickness, and was not bothered by this at all.  Check out our off-road safari package on our “packages and specials” page and many thanks to Alpine Adventures for giving us first-hand info to pass along to our guests!
