At the Lodge, we are now transitioning to the 2022-2023 winter season. The leaves have all fallen from the trees (as we pick them up around the Lodge), the first snow has fallen (albeit, melted away), and the Outdoor Activities Center has transitioned to it’s winter location (in the Banquet room).
This means we are focusing on making sure the cross-country ski trails and snowshoe trails are cleaned up (doing some stump grinding and removing of downed limbs), the rental equipment is in good order (snowshoes and Alta Skis), and the crew rejuvenated after a strong summer/fall season. In addition, we are working on fixing and upgrading our grooming equipment (Gator groomer, Ginzu repairs). We are going to be ready for the winter season at the Lodge.
….and experience the snow activities: downhill skiing (at Mt. Bohemia and Mont Ripley), cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snow biking, ice climbing, and snowmobiling at multiple areas around the Keweenaw.
In addition, there is stargazing — which happens year-round.
