Here in November we can feel the approach of winter and soon we'll be blanketed in white. The snow level in the Cascades across the way is creeping down lower and lower with each new snow fall. Temperatures are dropping here at the lodge getting ready to welcome the snows.
The time gas come to say adieu to autumn. The gardens are winterized and cozy fires are a treat in the fireplace once more. The meadow had its annual mow so the sledding hill be at top speed in the months ahead! Mother Nature can bring it on!
The first three weekends of December is the Lighting Festival in the village below for those guests interested in enjoying the music, entertainment and late afternoon lighting to set the holiday mood. For others, they prefer to stay away from the crowds and relish the serenity and recreation here on the mountain. If you are in need of a break from the holiday demands, consider a visit to renew yourself and your special someone here in early winter.
Experience the beauty of winter on the mountain arriving from our base parking lot via our heated snowcat or the monster van. Enjoy Chef Ron's freshly prepared cuisine for all meals while here at the resort. Also included in your lodging is 40 miles of pristine trails into the national forest, snowshoes, back country cross country ski equipment and sleds and inner tubes for our amazing 1,700' sledding hill! Enjoy a soak in the hot tub in the snow after a day of activities and cuddle by the massive fireplace in the lodge. Or if you prefer a day of r&r relax in a comfy place and pick up a good book, listen to music, play a game or do a puzzle. Whatever you desire for your special vacation.
There is limited availability for the Christmas and New Year dates if you want an intimate holiday high atop a mountain this year. If you can't get away until after the new year there is scattered space for the winter season of January, February and early March. Check out online availability or give us a call at 800-414-2378.
We look forward to sharing the beauty of winter here at Mountain Home Lodge.
