This Week at the Lodge ...

The lodge is opening under Phase 2 of the state’s plan.  We’re restricted to 50% capacity in seating, which means only 49 people in the lounge area, and no bar seating.  But we can have 112 in the ballroom.  Only 5 people to a table.  Also, there will be no table/cocktail service, so everyone will have to get their drinks at the bar…please be patient.

Recreate Responsibly on the White Pass Scenic Byway

The White Pass Scenic Byway is one of the most scenic and easily accessible outdoor recreation areas in Washington State. Following the guidelines mandated in the recovery of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are all on our way towards restoring access to our public lands. In doing so we extend an invitation to initiate this access responsibly with respect to our land, our wildlife, and our people. 

 

This Week at the Lodge ...

Going to do some thank yous here:

Thanks to all who were able to come and get Prime Rib.  It was a great success, and we’ll be hunting down some more roasts to do another one in the future.

Thanks to the volunteers who came in and helped out.  Our kitchen, and our building really aren’t set up too well for a “to go” only meal, but they made it all work.

Thanks to all who donated at the register to help out with our bills.

Thanks to all who bought 50/50 tickets (the winner even donated the winnings back to the lodge).
