Backcountry skiers wanted

sue-on-phelps-web2If you like to ski the backcountry, the Adirondack Ski Touring Council wants your help maintaining trails for skiing.

The council will be trimming brush and branches on the Van Hoevenberg Trail to Mount Marcy this Saturday. Volunteers are to meet at the High Peaks Information Center at Heart Lake at 8 a.m. Tools will be available, but if you have either a pair of long-handled clippers or a pole saw, bring it.

Next Saturday, ASTC volunteers will perform similar duty on the Wright Peak Ski Trail. Meet at the same time, same place.

Plans also are in the works for trimming along the Connery Pond Trail on Oct. 31 and Old Mountain Road on Nov. 7.

If you have questions, call Tony Goodwin at 518-523-1365.
