What if I am Arriving Late?

Sometimes circumstances can prevent us from making it to The Mountain “on time”. We at The Mountain encourage you not to stress and to travel safely. In order to accommodate late arrivals we ask that you call The Mountain Office at 828.526.5838 to let us know that you will be running late. If you are calling on the day of arrival please try to do so before 2pm, as the office staff is often busy attending to other guests and is unable to answer the phone in the late afternoon on arrival days. If you call later and no one answers please leave a voicemail.

 

If you are coming to The Mountain as an Adult or Group Retreat participant, here is what arriving late looks like:

You – call ahead to let us know your estimated time of arrival.

We – will let you know where you are being housed and what the evening event schedule is.

When you arrive – there will be a welcome packet for you in the window box just next to the door of the Main Office. This welcome packet will have a map highlighting your lodging and any other information sheets that were distributed at check-in. If you are not familiar with campus you can view our Map of the top of The Mountain.

You – find a staff member at Breakfast or in the Main Office the next morning and inform us that you did arrive and all is well.

 

If you are coming to The Mountain as a Youth Program, CON or MountainCamp participant, here is what arriving late looks like:

You – call ahead to let us know your estimated time of arrival.

We – will let you know the plan  for meeting you/your party when you arrive.

 

What if I have trouble finding my way or have other difficulties?

We hope that we can make a late check-in as easy as possible for you, but sometimes it can be difficult to navigate new terrain in the dark. If you find that you are in need of assistance, you may use a campus phone (there is one located inside of the window box just next to the door of  the Main Office) to dial extension 205, outside of office hours. Dialing 205 will ring an on-site staff member at home. You may also call The Mountain’s main phone number, 828.526.5838, and then ext. 205 from a cell phone.
