I’ve been meaning to climb some of the Adirondack High Peaks for a few years. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have any grand illusions of becoming a 46er (Although, as a side note, that would be awesome). I simply enjoy climbing the occasional mountain. Climbing some of the highest peaks in New York State seems like a good goal.
With my parents recent purchase of a camp in South Colton, NY I figured I’d use that as a base camp. I still probably will, although in a few weeks I’ll get to use the High Peaks Resort. A short time ago they started running the Elevate Your Rate promotion which is basically a deal for 75% (+) off. They’re featuring one of the High Peaks for 46 minutes for 46 days. During that time the promotional rate will be the same as the elevation of that featured peak. For example, our peak was Mount Emmons which has an elevation of 4,020′ which turned out to be a daily price of $40.20 which is pretty darn good.
My experience thus far has been via Twitter and I’m thoroughly Impressed. There has been a great amount of communication from them and I’ve felt they’re really going the extra mile. We didn’t get the dates we really wanted (due to availability) and I let them know. They promptly look into it and got back to me within an hour with an explanation why those dates were blocked out. They tried to see if there was any room available but unfortunately there was not. That’s OK, the dates we got work fine anyway, and now we get to go with my friend Anthony and his wife Meg! I really didn’t expect that kind of service at $40.20/night, and that’s just through twitter. I’m excited to see what kind of service they offer in person.
We’re definitely looking forward to the trip.
