Since yesterday’s hike was rained out, we’ve added two excursions to today’s schedule: join Colton at 11:00 AM or 3:00 PM for an Adirondack Hike! Boat over to the beautiful Adirondack State Park in New York and explore the other side of the lake! This hike is moderate and can take up to two hours depending on the group, so wear comfortable shoes and bring water.
Or, you can swing by the Treehouse Wellness Center at 11:00 AM to get F.I.T! This fun combination of cardiovascular exercise and strength training will get your heart rate up and give you the perfect Basin Harbor calorie burn!
For some fun on the lake this afternoon, meet April for a 2:30 PM Paddle Board Yoga class! Put your balance to the ultimate test in this 45-minute session. We recommend paddle boarders with experience but all levels of yogis are welcome.
If you prefer to stay dry, join the Narrated Cruise on the EScape at 2:30 PM. The trip will take you around our part of the lake and Captain Marty will share tidbits about the natural landscape, the rich historical context of our lovely slice of Vermont, and even bring you across to see the magnificent Palisades.
Join Colton on the Red Mill Soccer Field for a game of Pick-Up Soccer! Sign your team up with the Concierge and get your head in the game starting at 2:00 PM.
