Check-in after 2:00 p.m.
Check-in: Available from 2:00-4:00 p.m. You will find complimentary coffee, tea, and snacks in an area conducive to mingling. A short walk around the lake is a great way to unwind after your travels. Introductions: 4:30-5:30 p.m. After hellos, a short slide presentation provides an overview of L’Auberge du Mont as well a "virtual hike.” Wine is not sold on the premises, but there is a good selection at the local store and you may bring your own. We do not organize a "happy hour" before meals, but participants are welcome to organize something if desired. We can provide a corkscrew and wine glasses!
In the dining room at 6:00 p.m, our cafeteria style dinner includes a salad bar, soup, choice of two main dishes, vegetables, dessert, coffee, tea, juice, water.
Orientation: The Group Leader will officially welcome everyone and lead introductions. We will review the program theme, the up-to-date daily schedule and any changes, discuss safety guidelines, emergency procedures, roles and responsibilities, and answer any questions you may have. We will also let you know how to make the Auberge du Mont your "home away from home" for the week regarding laundry, phone, newspapers, Internet, etc. Indicated times are approximate; program activities and schedules may need to change due to local circumstances. In the event of changes, we will alert you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding. We have set aside some free time in the schedule for your personal independent exploration. The Group Leader will often be available during free time to accompany informal excursions, activities, or meals that have been excluded from the program cost. You are welcome to join if you like, with any associated costs on your own. Continue getting to know your fellow participants, settle in, and get a good night’s sleep for the day ahead.
