Sat, Nov 16: New Exploring Parc Guindon in Cornwall This large municipal park is known for its network of cross country ski trails. We’re planning to hike some of the trails to become familiar with the layout in anticipation of skiing or snowshoeing there when the snow arrives. 6 km, small hills, Level 1-2. Sunday November 17 in case of bad weather. Contact John Barron (613-828-2296, johnbarron@sympatico.ca) or Marianne Hebert (315-265-0756, hebertm@potsdam.edu).

Sun, Dec 8: Higley Flow State Park Annual Ski/Snowshoe/Hike and Cookout: Bring your kids, their grandparents, and your dogs to this annual early winter event. We’ll choose ski,snowshoe, or hike depending on conditions and do 2-3 miles followed by a cookout at a lean-to. I provide hot chocolate, hot dogs and fixings. Bring a snack to share if you wish. Contact Blair Madore, madorebf@potsdam.edu, 315-261-0751.

Sat, Dec 21: Solstice Ski to Clear Pond Ski into Clear Pond in the White Hill Wild Forest in Parishville. It is 1.9 mi. from the paved road (where we park) to the pond, following a snowmobile trail. The trail continues along the north side of the pond. Depending on how far we can go, the round-trip will be 4 to 5 miles. This is a moderately strenuous trip. It will be weather dependent for skiing. We will hike if there is no snow. Contact David Trithart, dtrithar@twcny.rr.com.
