Christmas Tree Permits & New Snow

Christmas tree permits go on sale November 17th! You must purchase permits at the Lodge or Evanston Ranger Station. Permits cost $10 and are limited to one per household. This is a great tradition to start with your family. We still have cabins available, so come plan a trip! Rent a cabin and go cut down your own Christmas tree!

We currently have about 3 inches of snow on the ground at the lodge, with more on top. Remember you can check current weather conditions by clicking on the links on our blog or in the Weather & News section on our website. We are also willing to put up a weather camera at the lodge if anyone wants to submit donations!

I know, I know, I know, the Blog postings have been too few and too far in between.
I have been busy and I have had camera problems.
I commit to keep new postings throughout the winter to keep everyone updated on snow storms, snow totals, and general weather updates.
Until Thanksgiving I will make one or two posts per week.
Today I arrived at The Cabins to find about four inches of snow. It probably won't stay until the next storm but the surrounding mountains have a good start.
As you can see from the photos, Cabin 6 is nearing completion. All exterior work is completed. We have the power connected and the propane connected to the furnace. All sheetrock is completed and all tongue and groove pine on the interior is up and looks very nice. Additional finish work including trim around the windows and doors is being done. Painting is being done and all interior stain is about completed.
Tile work in the entry way and bathrooms will start Friday and be completed this weekend. Cabinets are about 10 days out and carpet is two weeks out.
If everything continues on schedule we could have it completed and usable for Thanksgiving. We are now selling Shared Ownership in this cabin. If you want a beautiful cabin at a great value now is the time to act.
Cabin 7 has all the concrete work done. The footings and foundations are poured. The patio and the basement floor are also completed. We should start log work by the end of the month. This cabin will be sold in quartershares. We have three left.
For those of you who want weather updates go to the weather and news tab. You can click over to the national weather service for Lily Lake. This will tell you current weather and snow accumulations by hour for the past 24 hours. We also have a link to the KSL weather site that gives current conditions for Bear River Lodge. Take advantage of these great sites.
We are pondering a live weather camera. The problem is the cost of $1,000. If you want to contribute to this call Ashton at 801 798-1008 and give her a credit card contribution. As soon as we raise the $1,000 we will put up the camera. We will pay the monthly maintenance fee. So all you people who call every day of the winter, now is the time to avoid the delays and help us get this weather camera up and operable.
More later.
