Default Resort Options - Fly In

If Canada keeps the border closed for the balance of this year and if the current resort I am scheduled with will not allow roll over of my deposit till next year I will need resort options for 2021 and beyond.

Looking for fly in options if some one would have any recommendations?

Anyone booked through Showalter's fly-in this year and if yes then how are they treating you this year concerning deposits and missed reservations due to the closure?

Lesson learned is I would roll the dice and F the deposit. Get a list of outfitters and call 1-2 weeks before you leave as they might have openings. What some are doing on keeping/spending deposits sucks.

I know a lot are carrying them over so 2021 will be packed but I am sure there are open weeks.

Check out Slate Falls Outposts in Sioux Lookout. Do a search on them here on WC. Nothing but good.

Clark's, perhaps? Same thing happening with us. Not looking for a refund, at all ... just a slide to 2021 of our deposit.

I am not looking for a refund either. Have our trip rescheduled for later this year due to the closure. If the border does not open to salvage a trip this year I have asked to roll the deposit in to a trip next year. They stated if the border does not re-open this year then no refund and they would not roll it over to a trip next year.

I am not looking to bash a resort over this border closure but is there only 1 resort that is not offering roll over of deposit to next year if the border does not open this summer or fall?

With the attitude of this resort I am now looking a for another Fly-In service for future trips. I have used Showalter's in the past but I wanted to confirm that they were not pulling this BS with their current customers.

Check out Pickerel Arm Camps, have been using them for 25 years. Lots of different lake options and not so strict on weight allowances.

Can any one chime in on Pickeral Arms Camp and/or Slate Falls Outpost on specifically how they are handling deposits for scheduled trips this year that will not happen due to border closure?

Are they rolling your deposit over to a trip for next year?

Your input would be appreciated.
