WE HAVE SNOW!
Justin braving the stairs this morning
The stairs yesterday.
After a somewhat lacking morning yesterday we were drowned in Mother Winter's blessing, this morning we measured 7" of the stuff. The temps barely got above 25 and the overnight low was 11.
Today is the first day of the season and boy oh boy is it a day. To all the guests and hikers who are venturing up here today please use caution! The trails and slick, icy, and covered in snow. Waterproof, warm, wick, and shoes traction devices are so strongly suggested it's not funny.
We ask that all guests please call the reservation office ( 865-429-5704) to let us know if you guys are either coming up or staying down!
