Walton's Grizzly Lodge Summer Camp In The Winter

Monday, January 28, 2019 - 10:30am

We are often asked, "what is camp like in the winter?" At our 5,000 foot elevation it really varies winter to winter. Some winters we receive very little snow and our lake may have a thin layer of ice. Other winters we receive as much as 10-15 feet of snow and our lake is frozen thick with several feet of ice. Whatever type of winter we have, the tempatures drop quickly when the sun goes down and we yearn for the warm summer months that surely follow.

Included here are photos taken on a tour of camp on a late January day this winter. As of now, we can report that there has been plenty of rain at camp this season, but that the amount of snow has been fairly mild. With that being said, you never know what is around the corner when it comes to mountain weather.
