Snowshoeing Azure Mountain

Snowshoeing Azure Mountain

Feb 4, 10:00am

Blue Mountain Road,Waverly,12980,US Map

Novice Snowshoe adventure up Azure Mountain with Dr. Blair Madore, ADK Mountain Club Laurentian Chapter Vice-Chair, Eduction.

The view from this mountain top is incredible and boasts a fire tower, too. The trail is short (1 mile each way) but steep (over 900 feet of elevation) making for a doable but exciting snowshoe trek for novices and more experienced people alike.
Be sure to dress warm (no cotton), wear a polypropylene liner (something like Under Armour) and then a lightweight breathable shirt (some sort of poly blend) and then a sweater of wool or fleece and, if you have them, wear waterproof winter boots.
If you don't have equipment, contact us in advance and we should be able to help you.
Contact Blair Madore at 315-261-0751 or madorebf@potsdam.edu for details. This is a joint PPL on the Outside event with Laurentian Chapter, Adirondack Mountain Club.

Snowshoeing Clear Pond

Snowshoeing Clear Pond

Mar 4, 9:30am

Clear Pond Road,Parishville,13672,US Map

Join Dr. Blair Madore as he leads a gentle and fun introduction to snowshoeing at Clear Pond.

Join Dr. Madore, ADK Mountain Club Trail Coordinator, Laurentian Chapter Vice Chair, Education, as we will explore and snowshoe about two miles on an unplowed forest road to the edge of Clear Pond, once the home of Boy Scout Camp Vigor. Then, we will journey around Clear Pond for a total of about 5.5 miles. It's suitable for novices who are reasonably fit.
The Clear Pond wild forest south of Parishville is a spectacular area with several glacial lakes connected by primitive trails. This wild forest offers a real feeling of remoteness even though it's not far from Parishville.
Be sure to dress warm (no cotton), wear a polypropylene liner (something like Under Armour) and then a lightweight breathable shirt (some sort of poly blend) and then a sweater of wool or fleece and, if you have them, wear waterproof winter boots.
If you don't have equipment, contact us in advance and we should be able to help you.
