Mid-Week Skiing with Gary Schorr
The 2022-2023 ski season has wrapped up. Next season, those retired or who can take time off from work will enjoy trips to our local ski areas on weekdays when the crowds are smaller. We normally carpool to several areas upstate including Hunter, Windham, Belleayre, and Catamount; however, due to the Covid 19 situation, carpooling still may not be appropriate for everyone. Those wishing to carpool meet at 6am in Christopher Morley Park, just off exit 36 of the LIE. Email Gary at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive notices of these mid-week ski day trips.

Cross Country Skiing
