Thank everyone for a tremendous experience… »

February 28th, 2017

We were just there and I want to thank everyone for a tremendous experience. I’ve wanted to come for about ten years, but kept waiting for my kids to be old enough to enjoy the skiing. My family was dubious about following me on this adventure, but they all loved it. The drivers (Raven, Tami and Katlynne) got us there in style and comfort.

Our Stay at High Camp »

January 7th, 2017

Hi Chris,

Just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for the nice time we had. And Happy New year!

It was a nice first visit for me. Everyone was so nice and helpful. I’d love to come back for more fun in the snow. I’d also like to come back up for some volunteer work to help out where needed. And then there’s the picture of the fish that’s an image beckoning me to do some fishing up there.

The closest lake to High Camp doesn’t have a name »

It is easy for me to ski what I know, to return time and time again to my favorite places in the mountains. I think I’ve skied McCue Ridge, for example, in every imaginable snow condition and seen countless sunrises from the high point. I love returning to places and getting to know them intimately, sharing them with friends and describing to guests how to follow my tracks and experience them too. But it is also so refreshing to go somewhere new. Yesterday I visited two lakes I’d never been to before. One of them I didn’t even know it existed despite the fact that they are both only a couple miles away from camp. In fact, the larger of the two is the closest lake to High Camp.

High Camp Happenings

Kelly »

The High Camp Community has lost a dear friend in Kelly Tjaden. We will miss his smile and adventurous personality. Kelly was connected with Scottish Lakes from the times of Bill and Peg Stark when he was a forest ranger in the area. His memory of those days was skiing up to camp and being offered a “Yardarm”, one of Bill Stark’s signature beverages.  Over the years Kelly came as a guest, as staff and also a participant in work parties. He always brought with him a smile and lots of energy. He loved High Camp and made it a point to stay connected no matter where he resided over the past 30 years.

Around the Woodstove

Skandic Ski-doo! »

Well, we bought ourselves a new snowmobile! It is awesome…and big! As you can see in the photo the back basket is huge. The machine is strong and easy to drive. It holds 2 passengers behind the driver and more! Rich was able to take Kellie and Matt along with their dog, Clover plus their gear up all at once!

During our regular season in the winter we allow dogs at High Camp midweek. We recommend skiing in from mid mountain with your dog.

Wooden Skis and Bamboo Poles »

When I purchased my first pair of cross country skis in the early 1970’s they were made of wood with a three pin binding. I had leather boots that laced up. We used bamboo poles and wore really long wool sox to pull up under our wool knickers. I guess that dates me! But at lease it shows a long history of cross country skiing! I downhill skied in high school, but we were into the back country! So, before I ever tried cross country skiing I bought the complete set of gear. I knew I would love it! And it has been my primary winter recreation for over 40 years! My goodness….
