Sat, Dec 14: Indian Creek Snowshoe Let’s celebrate winter with an easy snowshoe or
hike of about 2 miles at Indian Creek Nature Center,
just outside of Rensselaer Falls. We’ll finish with
s’mores and cocoa (provided). A fun event for the
kids (bring extra mittens). We have snowshoes to
lend. Level 1. Contact Ann Spencer 315-379-1383.
Sat, Dec 14: Whiteface Toll Road Cross Country Ski This was an annual event for the
chapter for many years. Whiteface often has snow
when the low country is bare. This is a very strenuous
climb of 5 miles one-way. Ability to ski in crusty
and wind-swept snow is essential. Conditions can
be harsh, and participants must dress for cold and
wind. Level 5. Contact David Trithart 315-265-8117
Sat, Dec 21: Mt. Marcy on the Solstice At 5,344 feet this is the highest of the High
Peaks. This one is for experienced winter climbers.
Dress in layers, balaclava, goggles, gloves/mittens,
micro spikes/crampons, snowshoes, insulated water
source and a determined spirit! With a long exposed
summit windchill can be big factor. Heavy snow and
or high winds will cancel. Level 5. Contact Brian Baston 315-600-1282 or email@example.com.
