I don’t know about you, but I always dreamed of going on a honeymoon that would last forever. Sadly, the reality often differs and is filled with lots of dull days and nights instead of magical moments. However, it’s not always the case and there are ways to make the most of your stay and give yourself the romantic experience of a lifetime. One of the best things you can do on your wedding day is to groom the cross country ski trails at your leisure park. There are a series of tasks that will help you make the most of your time and have some fun. Once you’ve completed them, you’ll be able to hit the snow and satisfy your craving for an outdoor adventure. Here’s a guide to help you with that.
Collect The Trash
Whether you’ve owned the park for a long time or recently bought it, you’ll need to take care of the trash generated by the visitors. There are a few ways to go about this. You can either hire some professionals to come and collect the trash for you, or you can purchase a small front loader to handle it yourself. The key is in keeping the trails clean and tidy. Throwing away any trash that’s been left on the ground is a good start. Also, make sure that you remove any graffiti that’s been scrawled on the walls or fences as this will make the place look untidy and trashy. Finally, if there’s been a major snowfall and the trails have become sloppy, it might be a good idea to clear them.
Mountain Bikes Are A Must
If your resort is filled with beginners and families, you might want to consider getting a mountain bike. These bikes are perfect for tackling the trails and are a ton of fun to ride. They also give you the freedom to explore the resort and find new trails that you can groom. Mountain bikes are great for those who want to keep the trails neat and tidy because they don’t leave as much debris lying around as other bikes. They’re also great if you want to take a sneaky corner at full speed without having to worry about losing control.
Get The Right Gear
It’s important that you get the right gear for the job. You don’t want to end up buying expensive equipment that is completely inappropriate for the task at hand. For instance, if you’re just starting out, a good pair of cross country skis will cost you thousands of dollars. It is highly unlikely that you’ll be able to afford them if you already have a mountain bike. Alternatively, if you’re an experienced cross country skier, a single ski pass at the local ski resort will cost you hundreds of dollars. This is practically useless if you don’t have a jacket and gloves to match.
Skiing Is Backwards
It’s a good idea to start skiing backwards. This means getting into the habit of skiing down the mountain instead of up it. This will help you get the most out of your ski experience and make the most of the snowfall. When skiing towards the mountain, you’re dragging your skis through the snow, leaving a large track behind you. This makes it easier for other people to follow your footsteps and build up more snow on the trail. When skiing down the mountain, the snow will cover your tracks, making it harder for other people to follow you. This is why it’s usually better to go in the opposite direction. Start by taking the blue trail behind the lodge and working your way down. This will eventually lead you to the black trail (which is much longer and steeper). You can then work your way back up to the lodge or continue down the mountain and find the green trail leading to the bottom of the valley.
If you’re looking for an easy way to make some extra cash, why not try brushing for tourists? Basically, you’ll be collecting money from strangers who want to spend their holiday enjoying the snow. This is probably one of the least demanding tasks that you can do during your honeymoon. All you need is a brush, a bucket, and some high spirits. Start by putting up some signs informing passers-by that you’re looking for work. Once you’ve got a few customers, you can start charging them for brushing their skis and snowboards. The key is in keeping the customers happy by giving them good service. You can also ask other snow resort owners for referrals if you’re looking for work elsewhere.
Cut The Trees
When building a new snow resort, the first thing you’ll need to do is to cut down the trees. This will help you achieve two things: sunlight and fresh air. You need sunlight to grow crops such as vegetables and fruit for your restaurant. It’s also important that you have plenty of fresh air circulating inside your lodge. When you cut down the trees, you’ll immediately see and feel the difference it makes. You can also ask the foresters to cut down some trees for you if this is a job that’s been preventing you from concentrating on other things. The key is in making sure that they know what you want and that it’s something that can be done quickly. You don’t want to end up with rotten vegetables because of a lack of sunlight. You can also ask other chefs or owners of restaurants for suggestions on what trees to cut down depending on what grows well in your area.
Snowboards Are A Must
Unless you want to spend your honeymoon in a luxurious resort that doesn’t offer any of the necessary equipment, getting a snowboard is essential. These are the gadgets you’ll need to shred the snow and have some excitement-filled adventures. They can also be a ton of fun to ride if you’re not experienced. You’ll find all kinds of tricks, maneuvers, and flips that you can do on a snowboard. It’s important to get the right equipment and tools before you start. This will make all the difference and give you the best possible experience. This is one purchase that’s definitely worth making before your wedding day so that you can have some fun after you tie the knot.
Make Some Extra Money
There are many ways to make some extra money during your honeymoon. You can either offer your services as a masseuse or spa owner, sell homemade treats at the lodge restaurant, or become a tour guide. You can also ask other resort owners for referrals if you want to try out a new job.
The point is in keeping busy so that you don’t have time to think about your situation. Enjoy your wedding day and try to have as much fun as possible. There will be plenty of time for you to reflect on what happened later. For now, it’s time to rejoice and make the most of your newlywed days.
