The Cafe in the Orchard Lodge will be open all day for you to purchase breakfast, lunch and snacks at your leisure. Lunch sittings may be assigned when you arrive to avoid long lineups.

Snowshoeing

If you do not ski or snowboard, please join us for some snowshoeing! Snowshoeing is a growing sport and an excellent opportunity for non-skiing guests to enjoy the great outdoors. Snowshoeing trail maps may be picked up at the Club ticket office prior to setting out on the trail. It is strongly suggested that showshoing participants carry a cell phone for communication while they are out on the trail. Although the Snowshoe trails are not patrolled by the Club’s Ski Patrol, the trails are well marked to make certain guest safety has been considered. Please be advised that downloading passengers on the chairlifts is not permitted at any time.
