Today is the day! The lodge has reopened its doors, and is once again providing services to overnight guests and day hikers. Our team has been working hard in preparation for this moment, and we are eager to welcome folks back. If you are looking to make the climb in the coming weeks, come ready for a modified experience that puts visitor and staff health and safety at the forefront. All around camp, visitors will observe instructional signage that will help guide and inform them about where to go, and what safe practices to follow. Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we, like so many others, navigate these unusual times while staying true to our commitment to public health and safety.
Sunday was another stunning day to enjoy the outdoors. Fabulous temps and pleasant skies have certainly spoiled us. This week is shaping up to be a different tale, with clouds and passing showers expected through much of it. As of reporting time this morning, we had only received 0.1” of rain, so trails - especially those with stream crossings - should be manageable. Our high temp reached 65°. Current conditions have us hanging out in the 50s. The next few days will be slightly cooler before the warming trend returns by the weekend.
As is tradition, when we (re)open our doors, we unveil the season’s highly anticipated shirt design. For 2020, available in a myriad of colors, we have a two-sided design. On center chest we have a new look on our famous logo. Occupying the back is a simple but tasteful map of the mountain’s trails intermixed with artwork paying homage to the lodge’s unique qualities. Available in unisex short sleeve, long sleeve, and hoodies, as well as a women’s short sleeve option. Each style coming in a wide range of sizes. All 2020 apparel is sold exclusively atop Mt. LeConte, so hike on up and collect yours!
We’ll unveil several new merchandise items that have us excited to share soon. Stay safe and happy trails!
