Snow or no snow, come join us in the Eastern Sierra for the MLK Holiday weekend filled with Acro play, hot springs, snow shoeing, sledding, ice skating on frozen Lakes, hiking, eating delicious food, and time to take in some stunningly beautiful mountain scenery.
Each day will include an AcroYoga session, the option to go on an outdoor excursion, 3 nutritious chef prepared meals, cuddles & connection to old friends and new, Thai Massage, and so much more!
We will be staying at McGee Creek Lodge on Crowley Lake, 10 minutes south of famous Mammoth Mountain. This rustic wilderness lodge offers comfortable and cozy warm rooms with historic cabin styled decor. Pure natural mountain water serves the lodge which is nestled at the foot of the vast Eastern Sierra wilderness, John Muir hiking trails, and just minutes from the famous Mammoth ski slopes. McGee Creek Lodge is rich in historical tradition of the early West.

Worthy of noting, McGee Creek Lodge is (as we mentioned) 10 minutes south of Mammoth Mountain and about 30 minutes north of the town of Bishop. Mammoth is a world famous ski destination, and Bishop hosts the largest array of world class rock climbing in the country (arguably the world). If you are a climber or a skier/snowboarder, it might be worth taking an extra day to go explore these places. :)
