What a busy past few days it has been. So much activity on the ground and in the sky. Despite a very concerning weekend leading up to our annual airlift resupply, the frigid weather and snow still wasn’t enough to thwart our efforts. By Tuesday afternoon, the flying was done and all supplies for the season were delivered safely. Now our crew is working diligently to organize and clean every nook and cranny of these old buildings in anticipation of the first overnight guests next Monday. A huuuuuuge shout out to everyone that participated in our airlift this week, including but not limited to our on-site staff, the team staging our goods at Luftee, and our numerous vendors and contractors. Loading this place up for a bound-to-be busy season is no small feat, and it’s not possible so many dedicated and hard working folks. Thank you!
We started out cloudy but not long after lunch the skies broke open to glorious sunshine. Temps are going to feel fantastic up top, moving between the 40s and 50s as we roll into the weekend. There is a chance for some showers on Friday, but the weekend onward looks appetizing for outdoor exploration.
Now that airlift is complete, the lodge grounds are mostly accessible to the visiting public. We do have some maintenance projects happening, specifically along the grand stair case in the heart of camp, so that section will be excluded from hikers. And even though you might see our crew moving about between buildings, we are not open or providing services just yet. We officially start cranking out pancakes and shirts on Monday, March 21st. It’s coming soon!
Have a great rest of the day.
