continued Extensive work in and around the lodges includes a complete renovation of the Tannery Pub & Restaurant, featuring a new kitchen, reconfigured seating, improved menu options, and silverware and dinnerware replacing disposable plates and utensils. The concrete on the sundeck was completely resurfaced with an attractive natural color scheme of patio bricks, and the radiant heat system underneath that melts snow and eliminates ice was replaced. New picnic tables were added. The area between the deck and the Northwoods Gondola was filled and reseeded to provide a safe, even walk to the slopes.
The Base Lodge, the Northwoods Lodge, The Open Pit Grille, Hudson River Pump House, and smaller Base Area buildings were painted or clear-coated. All other siding was painted or stained to match the historic look of the North Creek Train Station, with colors including “Johnsburg Brown” and “Johnsburg Red,” named for their pigment mined on Crane Mountain. The Open Pit Grille was dressed up with new log siding, and the Retail Shop was attractively remodeled. New cooking equipment and a new beverage station will improve the Saddle Lodge experience, and new carpeting was added there as well.
