The final full day of the season is here! Today marks the last of any visitor services being offered for both overnight guests and day hikers. Come tomorrow morning we shut everything down, lock everything up, and bid farewell until next spring. If you happen to be in the vicinity tomorrow and notice any ground tremors or shifting of tectonic plates, do not fear. It’s likely just the crew stampeding down the mountain like a herd of bison ready to celebrate the season’s culmination and spend some hard earned time with their families and friends. Tomorrow is also the last opportunity to catch our lovable pack llamas on trail before they hang up their halters for the winter.
The weather for these remaining 24 hours of the season look fabulous. More sunshine and mostly clear skies are expected today and tomorrow, with temps continuing to climb out of this chilly basement we’ve been in. Temps in the low 30s this morning should ascend into the mid 40s this afternoon. The sun should feel delightful on the skin, but a light breeze will keep the coolness of the air ever present. The ice is holding firm to various patches on trail, particularly the higher up one gets, so continue to pack the traction devices.
