Gore Mountain Region - Purely Adirondack

Winter Outdoor Recreational Opportunities Seminars

In response to requests from the local community for more information on local trail systems and outdoor recreational opportunities they offer, the Chamber has worked with Steve Ovitt of Wilderness Property Management to provide seminars on winter and summer non-vehicle outdoor recreation seminars.

The first of these seminars, for Winter Outdoor Recreation will be held on Saturday, Jan. 12 and Tuesday, Jan. 15. Both start at 7 p.m. at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek. These seminars will provide information and increase the awareness of Adirondack business owners, employees and the public to non-motorized winter outdoor recreation located on public trails in the Southeastern Adirondacks, Upper Hudson River Drainage area.

The program will include backcountry/cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and winter mountaineering and focus on 50-plus miles of backcountry trails accessible from the North Creek Ski Bowl Park, Thirteenth Lake/North River, Bakers Mills and some of the trails located in Chestertown, Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Thurman and Newcomb. They will cover the experience level of the user from easy to extreme.

Registration is recommended, but not necessary. Contact the Chamber at 251-2612 or info@gorechamber.com.

Seminars are free and open to the public. The program is being sponsored by: Warren County, First Wilderness Heritage Corridor, the Town of Johnsburg, and Gore Mountain Region Chamber of Commerce. Summer Outdoor Recreational Opportunities Seminars will be planned for this spring to include hiking and mountain biking.
