As the weather continues to warm, so too does the activity on the lake and the mountain. We’re just a week away from Father’s Day Weekend and less than a month away from lighting up the sky for the 4th of July. Of course, there’s plenty of other activities for all ages to partake in until then. All of that and more is in this week’s Bear Prints!


The next HOA Member Roundtable is tomorrow, June 10th at 4:30pm at the Lake Club. Can’t be there in person? Join us on Zoom (meeting ID: 663 867 3637). If you have any questions, contact 

In recent weeks, we have seen a noticeable increase in bear activity around property compared to recent years. We urge everyone on property to stay vigilant and follow all necessary precautions. This includes disposing of all trash properly and ensuring trash bins are locked. Thank you!
