We have a new mountain manager for Scottish Lakes and he is an old friend! Eric Messerschmidt will manage High Camp this winter along with Chris. His debut weekend is Thanksgiving! Late November at 5000 feet is a great time to greet winter, as an almost guaranteed blanket of early season snow means sledding, snowshoeing and limited ski touring. Maybe even more important than the early winter recreational opportunities, a Thanksgiving holiday retreat at High Camp is simply a great chance to disconnect from all the craziness of normal life for a few days

The weekend offers an opportunity to spend some quality off-the-grid time relaxing with friends and family in a gorgeous high mountain setting. Dream a bit about quiet conversations in front of a flickering fire with gentle snow falling outside. Or perhaps you would rather just curl up with a good book or maybe get involved in a spirited board game. Now add to that vision the aroma of a fresh turkey baking in the lodge oven! How can you resist?

An organized Thanksgiving pot-luck is in the works. High Camp will provide the turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy which should do just fine in our large Garland oven in the lodge. The good news is that the Garland also has six gas burners, meaning lots of room to cook numerous delectable side dishes. The plan is simple! Once it has been determined who wants to partake of this special Thanksgiving pot-luck, an email invitation for guests to sign up for their special contribution to the event…..cranberry sauce, rolls, side dishes, salad, wine and pies…you get the picture!

Oh and one other thing to consider. Sorry no football.
