Otis Notice

Hey All – Despite a few snow cat grooming challenges early on, we had a great day of skiing at Otis this past week and there is a surprising amount of snow on the hill! I am planning on running the lift again this coming Saturday if you have any interest in getting out. I am also reminding everyone about the opportunity to ice climb this weekend. If interest is there please let me know so we can plan accordingly. We need a critical mass of 3-4 to pull it off and the sooner you let me know of your interest, the better.

Also remember that the Adirondack Backcountry Ski Festival will have demos and food and an avalanche beacon park on the following Saturday, the 16th. Its free to attend and is always a great event.

AND there is also the Deershead Mile coming up on April 13th, so get that on your calendar as well. Details here: https://runsignup.com/Race/NY/Elizabethtown/DeersHeadMile

Hoping everyone is enjoying the snow and getting out there!

Otis Notice Plus

Hi All – Hoping to run the lift this weekend and will shoot for Saturday since I think Whiteface has a program on Sunday. Aiming for the usual 10A to Dusk assuming I can get everything running that morning! There are two other Otis-related activities worth noting also:

Ed Palen of Rock & River has graciously offered once again to run a FREE youth/parent Ice Climbing Clinic at Otis on March 9. Gear is included and I need an approximate head count to see if we can hit critical mass to pull it off. Ideally, age 14 and up seems to be the sweet spot for the sport, but Ed tells me a strong 12-13 year old could also have some fun. Let me know if interested and I’ll start a separate thread with details.

The Backcountry SkiFest is also coming up on the 15th-17th and, snow gods willing, we will run the lift for Mountaineer’s Demo Day on the 16th all day. Info here at: https://www.mountaineer.com/ski-fest/events/

Hoping we see you some where along the line. Let me know of interest and questions around the ice climbing event.

Cheers - Jeff
