TRAIL NEWS FALL 2013
Here is the short list…
We have basically doubled the size of the parking lot. Last year, most Saturdays and some Sundays parking spilled out into the road, which is a good problem to have.
More skate skis and combi-boots are being added to the rental department. We continue to invest each year in rentals to accommodate more people and to provide the best possible ski experience to new skiers.
Two years ago, we added a new Ski-Do Skandic and liked it so much we will be picking up another new sled this November. There is also an order in for a new
Yellowstone Track System compactor drag . This drag has a comb at the back and
will be able to level, pack and leave corduroy in one pass.
Here is some big news. The Pennsylvania Nordic Championships are being held at Wilderness this season on Saturday, February 1st with a 9 AM start time. There will be three adult and three children races. The format for adults is a 5.5 km classic, 8.5 km skate and 17 km skate. The children will have 1k, 2k and 3k events. Registration will be found on the PACCSA’s website (Pennsylvania Cross County Ski Association). The trails will remain open to the public with some special considerations to accommodate this event. Racing should be over at noon with the possibility of combined youth programs in the afternoon.
Other than that, we have put a new entrance on the rental building and Ryan is in the process of putting on an addition at the lodge to accommodate his family.
And we now have a dog “Swix”, full of black wax and very friendly, and a duck “Duck, Duck”, who will eat out of your hands.
Trails look good. Work progresses toward winter.
