Carinthia Base Lodge: Thanksgiving Update
Friday, November 23, 2018
Happy Thanksgiving skiers and riders. We know what we're thankful for this year, and that is the opening of our new Carinthia Base Lodge. We know you've all been wondering when we'll be opening up, and we're thrilled to welcome you all to the new lodge this weekend!
At 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, we're going to be opening the first floor of the Carinthia Base Lodge, which is where all of our skier services will be located. To start we're going to open with the new Mount Snow Sports at Carinthia, as well as ticketing, and restrooms. As the month proceeds, we'll be adding in Rentals, Day Lockers, and Tuning, so keep an eye on the Snow Report for updates and service openings.
Saturday will also mark the opening of our first restaurant and bar at in the new lodge, as High Timber Lounge on the second floor will open its doors, featuring an early-season menu that takes you from a coffee bar in the morning, to tasty bites midday, and then straight on through into après. We're really excited to show off the first of three new eateries in this lodge and can't wait to welcome you all to the rest of them in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, our crews are still putting on the finishing touches on the rest of the second floor, including the made-to-order food stations in High Timber, as well as our sit-down restaurant and bar on the third floor. More on that to come later. As of now, we're shooting to open the rest of the second floor by December 15th and have the full lodge open and ready to go by the time we host the Carinthia Classic as part of the 10th Anniversary Celebration of Carinthia Parks on December 22nd.
As for an operations schedule, we plan to operate this lodge on weekends-only to start, with doors opening a half-hour before lifts start spinning. During the week, we're going to go ahead and keep the lodge closed for now in order to let the crew finish this project without having to work around our guests. We'll be opening the lodge for weekday operations as soon as we can, which is looking to be December 22nd. During this time, we will still have plenty of parking at the Carinthia Base Area and will be running lifts out of the Carinthia, but skier services will be only available in the Main Base Area on weekdays.
We can't wait to see what you all think of this new lodge and its amazing new amenities. Please comment below and let us know what you think!
