Waterton fires and Alpine Stables

As you know, the last several years, our rides have been in Waterton Lakes National Park with our outfitter, Alpine Stables.

If you’ve been following the news, you’ll know that there is a fire in Waterton, both in the park and the town that is still burning out of control. Type “Kenow fire” into Google and you can read the news. One of the casualties has been the buildings and facilities of Alpine Stables which burned to the ground last week.

Many people have asked about this (don’t worry, everyone is safe) and what action we plan to take. At this point, we don’t even know the overall extent of the damage. Parks lost much of its infrastructure and we don’t know if our camp has survived. At this point, we need to let the emergency teams do their job and respect the mandatory evacuation orders.

Two of our members, Jim & Melissa Bradbury, have started a Go Fund Me account to help out Dee and the Alpine Stable family. They have asked us to pass along this link … https://www.gofundme.com/waterton-alpine-stables-family

We’ll keep you posted of further developments.
