The phone at Potts Sleigh Rides in Bonshaw, west of Charlottetown, has been ringing off the hook with the recent snow. The first sleigh rides will be next week.

Owner Elaine Potts said the family is happy to get the extra business before Christmas.

"I've had quite a few bookings for next week. It's overwhelming that's for sure," said Potts.

"When the snow comes, they book quick. [It] feels good. We're in the business, so [it] keeps you busy answering the phones."

Potts Sleigh Rides has been in business for 42 years.
