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.

Quick Trip to High Camp »

The snow just hasn’t stopped. So of course, neither have the turns. Or cell phones.

I was asleep when my phone lit up with a message early one morning from a buddy down a few hours south in Leavenworth. “The group has a weekend booked at High Camp – you want in? We leave tomorrow at 9.” No one in their right mind says no to that offer, especially this season. Fortunately for me, waking up to check my phone rather than sleeping through it was the right call, because after some last minute schedule switching, I found myself on a couch in Leavenworth with a pile of food and beer in the middle of the living room. If I was happy then, words can’t describe the feeling of the next two days.

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.

Spring Transport »

Family weekend in April and we have our “kid snowmobile” team. It is sunny and beautiful and the kids are happy!

As the big snow winter of 2016-17 comes to an end I think back on spring thaws of the past. Many years we have had warm spring weather late in our ski season that caused the snowmobile route to melt out. It would be OK if the melt was gradually up hill, but of course that is not the case. Our upper road can melt out in portions, some higher up which is a nightmare for transportation. But this year we are still snowmobiling the last 4 miles on a really good snow pack!
