It’s been a dreary start to the day, a mountain top capped in clouds and mist. But that doesn’t match the mood of excitement now that the lodge crew is returning to get things ready. We’ll be taking these next several days to clean, sanitize, and retrain the staff in our newest health and safety driven procedures. One way we’re fulfilling our commitment to visitor health is increasing the number of hand sanitizing stations available at the lodge. Our public spaces - Dining Hall, Office, and restrooms - were already equipped, but now each of our guest cabins possess them as well for convenience.
Tuesday’s high temp eventually reached 42° by late afternoon, and it never dropped below freezing during the night. Patchy snow clings to the shady places, but rising temps in the days to come will ensure clear trails by the time we open our doors. The current trails open to the public remains unchanged, with Rainbow Falls being the shortest available. Bull Head is littered with dozens of downed trees, and Trillium and Boulevard are much longer. If a day hike to the mountain is in your plans before Monday, remember that the lodge grounds are closed.
