— Steve Ovitt of Wilderness Property Management Inc. (WPM) will present two seminars on Winter Outdoor Recreation on public trails in the Southern Adirondacks.

Attendees can choose between one of two seminars, on Saturday, Jan. 12 or Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the Tannery Pond Community Center. Both seminars will start at 7 p.m.

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.

The program will cover 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.

In addition to providing users with information from beginner to extreme, the program will give local businesses and their employees the ability to reasonably assess skill levels of customers and match them up with the right recreational activity for an enjoyable experience. The recreational opportunities described will cover the spectrum of difficulty and experience to include trail features and snow conditions that determine the difficulty of a backcountry ski, snowshoe or trek.

Registration is recommended, but not necessary. Contact the Gore Mountain Region Chamber at 251-2612 or info@gorechamber.com to reserve seating. The seminars are free, thanks to generous sponsorship from: Warren County, First Wilderness Corridor, the Town of Johnsburg, and Gore Mountain Region Chamber of Commerce.
