New Cross Country Ski Trails at Paul Smiths VIC

Postby CampADK » Wed Feb 15, 2012 5:35 pm

For those who like to cross country ski in the winter in/around Fish Creek...

Paul Smith's took over the Visitors Interpretive Center Last year from the state last year which has resulted in some great news!
This year they have expanded the ski trail system and purchased a groomer. A trail fee now in place helps to cover the cost.

Read all about it here.

We typically get over there about once a year to ski. Hoping to make it over the last week in February to check out some new trails!

I read your other post about snowy Lake Placid. How much landed there? Did you make it to the VIC? We got about 9 inches in St Law Co. We are on vacation in another week and hope to find some snow to ski on. Not sure if ours will melt between now and then.

Yes were here till next Friday in LP. We're both recovering from colds but there is a chance we may make it to the VIC tomorrow or another day. I'm anxious to see how and where they expanded the trails. The outer loop we used to ski is really long and once your on it, you have to complete the whole thing.

It's still snowing and has been windy all day. They are still behind on depth of snow however in Lake Placid. Supposed to snow through till tomorrow morning I think.

Did meet a couple camping actually here in Lake Placid. I'll have more on that in another post.
