There are no weather stations at our lodges, so we rely on Churchill forecasts as a gauge. However, conditions can vary drastically between town and our lodges and no matter how carefully we plan, weather can quickly throw us off course. Conditions change quickly and constantly in the north, so leading up to and on changeover days, our lodge manager is in constant communication with our staff on the ground in Churchill.
We know it’s frustrating to hear from someone on our team that your flight to the lodge is delayed due to low visibility at the lodge. Perplexing, too, when you’re standing on the tarmac in Churchill and the skies are mostly clear. Unfortunately, scenarios like this do happen, and most of the time delays are minor.
We do our best to transfer guests to and from the lodge as efficiently as possible, but sometimes we’re at the mercy of mother nature. Safety comes first!
