A message from Chris Hanson at Scottish Lakes High Camp

This past year I have been supported by the loving arms of the Scottish Lakes High Camp community. Hugs in the parking lot, special conversations as we drive up to High Camp, emails with fond memories of times with Don have sustained me through this incredibly difficult time. The spirit of High Camp is as strong as ever; this year has gone well for the business, staff and our guests. It is amidst all this love, goodwill and support that I have made the decision to sell Scottish Lakes High Camp.

I am in no hurry to move on. I believe new ownership will be best for Scottish Lakes in the long run and I am dedicated to take the time to find the right buyers for this incredible destination and community. Scottish Lakes High Camp has a life of its own beyond ownership of the business and I have been blessed to be a steward of this amazing place for the past 20 years. This has not been an easy decision for me, but it is the right one.



The Washington Ski Touring Club is a Seattle-based, recreation-oriented club of about 360 members who organize nordic classic, skate, telemark, and backcountry touring ski trips.  We also have a monthly meeting with interesting programs on equipment, tours, weather, ski destinations, etc. (October to May).

We love to ski and encourage you to join us!  Our monthly meetings and potluck events are open to all. However, much of our website such as Multi-Day Trips, Discussion Forums, Nordic Patrol,  Weekend Weather forecasts, and our Newsletter are open only to Members.
