Our 91st Summer Season in 2008

Opening day for Baldpate's 91st summer season in 2008 is just around the corner on Friday, May 23rd (Memorial Day weekend). As usual we will open at 11:30 AM until 8:00 PM and recommend dining reservations at 970-586-(KEYS) 5397. The Key Room is free and open daily from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM through mid October.

We are already beginning the opening process, digging out the snow, turning on the water and heat. Staff will begin to arrive soon and washing windows is always on the agenda (Any former staff member can tell you why they are called window pains-- okay, panes!)

We do still have quite a bit of snow, the handicap ramp and drive thru today have well over 3 foot of snow & ice from the past several storms. The warmer weather we hope will take care of that!

As always there are lots of little fix up jobs to do. My biggest project is an update of the lobby couches. After more than 20 years of lounging guests & staff, the cushions are showing some wear. We decided to continue our blue & green color palette into the lobby area and are anxious to show off our fresh new look.
More news soon, but for now remember the enchantment of Baldpate, we look forward to welcoming you back! for more info
