Sequoia-Kings Canyon, Large Group Dining

Our Boy Scout Troop is looking for a location to have a celebratory dinner after 6 days on the trail in July. I called the Peaks Restaurant but they said they won't be able to support a group of 30. They put me on to the Wuksachi Lodge Event Coordinator who can book a conference room which they use for Weddings etc, with options for a Buffet or a set Menu.

I'm looking for suggestions ...

Shasta snowmobilers -- help inquiry

Are any snowmobilers based at Mt.Shasta interested in taking a few climbers from Bunny Flat trailhead to the OSB trailhead? The Old Ski Bowl road is projected closed a while longer.

This would be in April.


P.S. Yes, I know it's just ~2.5 miles between the two trailheads. Also, we're passing ...
