Imagine staring at the stars and seeing a meteor shower in a beautiful, dark, mountain top setting! 

Join us for this unique and amazing Perseid Meteor Shower viewing & mountain top camping experience. Your experience starts at 4pm at the base of the Timber Chair, check in, load your gear and then it’s up the chairlift to your camping area in the alpine to set up your camp site for the evening (hosts are available to assist).

After a guided hike you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner at Lost Boys Cafe, followed by some special meteor shower programming including an educational talk from our camp host on what the Perseid Meteor shower is and what causes it, followed by a special photography session with professional photographer Matt Kuhn. Matt will share a few tips on night photography, what gear is needed & how to capture the meteors. Following dinner and the education sessions, head out onto the Lost Boys deck or back to your campsite to view the meteor shower which is set to peak between dusk and dawn.

The next morning, enjoy a delicious breakfast at Lost Boys Cafe before camp clean up and loading the Timber chairlift back to the base.
