Join us for some skiing on the Westwind Trail if there is enough snow, if not we’ll be snowshoeing/hiking along some other trails at Highland. Westwind is 4 miles of a nice trail with some hills up and down that are not super long nor super steep There is a cut-off for beginners who have skied enough to go on their own that will make the trail more like 2 miles. Plan for up to 3 hours depending on our speed.
Dress in layers and bring water.
There are ski rentals available but a 4 mile trek is hard if you have never skied before. If you have always wanted to try cross country skiing, do let me know (contact info will be at the bottom of your confirmation email when you RSVP). If there are a couple of you, then you could rent skis and ski around the shorter trails near Skyline Lodge together.
I will email you on Thursday or Friday exactly what we can do depending on the snow amount. There is food and snacks in the lodge. The chili is very good.
Address: 1254 Highland Park Rd, Fabius, NY
Note: There is a $3 parking fee for those who do not have a season pass.
