The Waning Days of the Fall 2009 Season

Last Friday marked the end of Fall 2009 for our seasonal staff here at the Spruce Knob Mountain Center. Since September 1, we have served over 1,000 people with our programs and facilities. So far this fall we have run 22 programs with public and private schools and provided programs and facilities for a wide variety of adult groups and organizations. We’ve got three more weeks for our residential staff to run programs and hope that the good weather can last just a bit longer.

Our school course season has gradually been extending on both ends, beginning earlier in the spring and wrapping up later in the fall, sandwiched on either end by severe winter weather. Last year, during this very week, we were chaining up the vans and skiing due to a 10 inch snow storm. This year, daytime highs are reaching the 50’s and 60’s and night time lows are in the 30’s.

We want to praise and thank all of our staff members for working so hard to provide safe, educational, and enjoyable programs to all of our schools and adult participants.

Can you make some trail recommendations for skiing around Spruce Knob?
