Guests can also be present for the Screening of the Sundance Film Festival’s critically acclaimed Vanishing of the Bees. This exclusive viewing is part of the ‘Bee Mindful’ weekend, May 3-5, and initiative which is raising awareness of Colony Collapse Disorder which threatens the bee population and our food supply. This weekend we will also be breaking ground on a wildflower garden to promote a healthy habitat for local honeybees.

Memorial Day will also have a fun and fantastic themed activity weekend taking place May 24-27. In addition to the miles of hiking and biking trails as well a lake activities, Skytop offers an exciting Adventure Center including a three-tiered zipline/challenge course, as well as a shooting and fishing center. The Skytop Tennis Center features Mohesh R. Koregaokar. Affectionately known as “Moe”, he has over 30 years of playing, touring, coaching and consulting exposure at all levels of expertise and abilities. Having served as personal coach for Andy Roddick and Venus and Serena Williams, Skytop is honored to welcome Moe to the Skytop team. Skytop also offers an award-winning championship golf course under the direction of PGA professional, Brian Boyle.

Golfers and enthusiats will love the stunning mountain vistas that surround Skytop’s 18-hole championship golf course. The course features 6,656 yards of golf that tests all levels of play through rolling hills, open meadows, waterfalls, mountain streams and woodlands. The course has a rating of 72.0 and a slope rating of 133, which distinguishes it as a challenging course since an average course usually has a rating of 117.

“The small greens are what make it more of a difficult course to score on,” said Skytop’s Director of Golf and Head Professional, Brian Boyle.  “It puts a premium on a golfer’s chipping and putting.”

For Father’s Day this year, give him an experience he will never forget with sporting clays, fly fishing, tennis or golf lesson at the lodge.

The fourth of July holiday at Skytop will see activities such as  fireworks, picnics, music and more.

All summer long Skytop is the ideal destination of choice for families – traditional family, family of friends or your family reunion. For more information on these and other fabulous theme weekends, visit www.skytop.com/theme-weekends.
