After a brief stop in the small Roerich Museum (free), with its magnificent paintings by the artist of nature scenes from the Himalayas, we will visit Morningside Heights.

Go With The Snow! - MLK Weekend Skiing on the Tug Hill Plateau, NY

Date: Friday, January 18 - Monday, January 21

Enjoy great cross country skiing on the Tug Hill's lake effect snow, skiing state forest trails or at a rustic, well-run local nordic center. Stay three nights in a shared house with full kitchen, linens provided, etc. Great opportunity to try 'nordic backcountry' skiing on gently rolling terrain. Not open to beginners, but intermediates and up are welcome. For the skiing, we will divide into two groups, with advanced skiers in one group (longer tours, faster pace, more difficult terrain) and intermediates in the other (shorter distance, more leisurely pace, less difficult terrain). Each group will have its own leader. It is strongly recommended that all participants have at least some winter hiking experience in deep snow (and enjoy it). For those who prefer groomed-track skiing, there are two excellent nordic centers in the area. There is a small local downhill ski area that often offers real powder skiing. It's also possible to drive to the western Adirondack Park for a day of wilderness skiing (if conditions permit and there is interest among participants). If there's enough snow, it's often possible to get in a few telemark turns along the way. If you're interested in learning the turn, or if you love turning your 'backcountry' cross country skis in natural powder snow, this could be what you're looking for. This would be an option for *advanced* level skiers only. Contact leader for information, or to register for the trip.

Little Moose Mountain Sled/Backpack via the Northville - Placid Trail

Date: Friday, January 18 - Monday, January 21

Join us on this 4 day 32 mile backpack into one of the most remote areas of New York. Little Moose Mountain is #75 on the Adirondack 100 highest list with an elevation of 3,620'. This area is located in the Little Moose Wilderness. There is no trail nor is there a herd path for most of the climb. Day 1 is an approach via Cedar River Road (from Indian Lake) which is not plowed beyond the 4 mile point before Wakely Dam. Total distance day 1 will be about 8 miles with 5-1/2 of that on Cedar River Road which is a snowmobile trail in the winter and likely groomed. Day 2 is a round trip of about 8 miles to break out a trail to the summit. We will do this from the Northville Placid Trail where it connects to the Wilson Ridge Trail via a connector trail. Day 3 is about 8 miles round trip to either continue to break out the trail to Little Moose Mountain or head south on the N-P toward Cedar Lake as far as we want and and return to camp. Optional route is to take the Otter Creek Trail to the Lost Pond Trail and return. Day 4 is hike out about 8 miles. Note that this is a scouting trip for the portion off the N-P. We have not done this part previously. Our focus on this trip is more about teaching safe wilderness winter camping and hiking skills than bagging the summit. We may have to melt snow for water. We have had winter trips where we spent all 4 days breaking trail in beautiful surroundings but never got close to a summit. This trip requires previous winter camping experience in cold temperatures. All participants will need snowshoes, a winter sleeping bag rated to at least -20 degrees F and have winter boots with a removable liner. No single layer or leather boots will be approved. Under other on the registration form, please list what sleeping bag and boots you have or that you need our advice on what to get. Leaders will be using mountaineering sleds and we have some spare sleds we can loan out.

AMC Young Members Winter Weekend 2019

Date: Friday, January 18 - Monday, January 21

PLEASE BUY TICKETS ON EVENTBRITE HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/amc-young-members-winter-weekend-2019-lake-placid-ny-tickets-51942223589 The AMC NY-NoJ Young Members Chapter is proud to announce the 2019 Winter Weekend in Lake Placid, NY. The event was a huge success in 2016, 2017, and 2018. Nestled in the heart of New York's beautiful Adirondack Mountains, Lake Placid is one of America's top winter destinations. The city played host to the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games, and features easy access to a wide range of winter outdoor activities. Tear up the slopes at nearby Whiteface Mountain, rent a pair of ice skates to glide across Mirror Lake, strap on the Nordic skis for miles of cross-country adventures, tame the blustery High Peaks, or relax by a warm fire. This trip is yours to make! We will aim to follow our itinerary from previous years. Last year, over 30 intrepid NY-NoJ young members drove up to Lake Placid on the Friday before MLK Jr. weekend, stayed three nights at the Cascade Cross Country Ski Lodge just outside Lake Placid, and returned on Monday with many more great memories than they had before leaving. The Cascade Cross Country Ski Lodge, our planned venue, features a half-dozen heated bunkrooms and showers. You can see more at: http://www.cascadeski.com/. We're looking forward to a great trip! IMPORTANT NOTE: Please plan to arrange your own food, and please bring your own sleeping bags! Your ticket price includes a light breakfast, and we usually do group dinners, but lunch is often largely independent. ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE/DISCLAIMER: Due to the prohibitive costs of trip insurance and the unlikelihood of a "storm of the century" scenario where we would need to cancel the trip entirely, you assume the risk of last-minute, weather-related cancellation without a refund when you buy your ticket. Again, it is highly unlikely that we will need to cancel, but given the winter weather, it needs to be an option for the safety of those attending. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact the organizer.

Wakely Mountain Sled/Backpack via the Northville - Placid Trail

Date: Friday, February 15 - Monday, February 18

Wakely Mountain is #66 on the Adirondack 100 highest list at 3670' and has a fire tower on top. It is located 1 mile before reaching the Wakely Dam entrance to the Moose River Plains. Our 4 day trip covering about 24 miles will will consist of the following itinerary. Day 1 travel on a snowmobile trail 3 miles and then head north on the N-P up to a mile to find a camping spot. Day 2 Climb Wakely Mountain and return to camp. Figure 4 miles each way. Day 3, continue breaking out the trail to Wakely Mountain or head north on the N-P as far as we want and return. Figure 4 miles each way. Day 4, hike out 4 miles. Please note that this is a scouting trip for the leaders. We have not climbed Wakely Mountain before or been north on the N-P. Our focus on this trip is more about teaching safe wilderness winter camping and hiking skills than bagging the summit. We may have to melt snow for water. We have had winter trips where we spent all 4 days breaking trail in beautiful surroundings but never got close to a summit. This trip requires previous winter camping experience in cold temperatures. All participants will need snowshoes, a winter sleeping bag rated to at least -20 degrees F and have winter boots with a removable liner. No single layer or leather boots will be approved. Under other on the registration form, please list what sleeping bag and boots you have or that you need our advice on what to get. Leaders will be using mountaineering sleds and we have some spare sleds we can loan out.
