What better way to start the new year than to try a new sport? On Wednesday, Jan. 3, Allegany Nordic and the Environmental Education Department have teamed up to host an evening cross country ski on the Art Roscoe trails of Allegany State Park followed by a social in the Summit Warming Hut. Cross country skiing is an excellent low impact exercise, easy to learn, and a lifetime sport. Allegany Nordic will be on hand to help and give tips to new comers. All levels are welcome as we head into the woods for an evening ski on Sweetwater Trail. Bring a headlamp, your sense of adventure and something to share for the social.  Rental equipment will be available for a special price of $10 at the Summit Warming Hut from 5- 6 p.m. Come early to get fitted properly. The program starts at 6 p.m. with a short clinic.

The Outdoor Adventure Series is a great way to learn about all the fun activities offered within Allegany State Park- Western New York’s Playground. Check our Facebook page for more Outdoor Adventure Series programs coming up in 2018.

Please register for this event before 3 p.m. the day of the program. For more information, contact the Environmental Education/ Recreation Department at (716)354-9101 ext. 236 or AlleganySP@parks.ny.gov.
