Porcupine Lodge

Porcupine Lodge was built in the mid 50's and sits on top of Lookout Mt. Since that pod opened it has been used by ski patrol. It is now under reconstruction for public use for this coming season.

NICE to see the old girl getting some love.

Re: Porcupine Lodge

Why spend money on this?
That pod is barely ever open
How much is this really going to get used?

I love seeing this kind of stuff. Old lodges like this just ooooooze ADK's and should be restored for all to see and use.

Why not?  Maybe this is part of a plan to be opening it more often.  It doesn't have to hardly ever be open and before 15-16, they seemed to open Lookout much more often.

No...there's an 8x8 hut just off to the left of the top of lift L where ski patrol will be stationed for their watch on Lookout. That's the last I heard.

Weather permitting it should be open more. With doubling the capacity of Pump House 1 the lower mountain will get covered a lot faster, so snowmaking will be able to start earlier on Lookout then it has in past seasons.

I was looking to see what the original intent of Porcupine Lodge was and came across this article on Marble Mountain

I'd never heard of it before.
