Christmas Tree building at WL

Just wondering if one of the podcasters is going to go watch the building of the Christmas tree at Wilderness Lodge. I've seen video on youtube of this going up but a first hand report might be interesting.

I haven't seen a schedule for this but would love to see it. Any ideas on the date they do this?

Don't know on the timing. Its probably something that one of the suits at WL would have to answer. I understand from watching the video on youtube that this is done overnight.

I don't know when they put the trees up exactly. But I do remember going early in November one year and that weekend the Xmas trees were up at the Yacht and Beach. It was around November 10th that might give you a timeline.

I wonder if calling the hotel would get you any results.

I love the WL Xmas tree. It's so rustic and pretty.

We watched them assemble the chocolate merry go round at the Beach Club late one night.

I have no idea of the date.

It was the day the pastry chef had a heart attack after some guy started touching the horses intended for the carousel
