I'll be in NY that week if anyone wants to join me for XC skiing in the Tug Hill region. Local road conditions can vary greatly and finding trail heads can be challenging for those not familiar with the area so we will caravan from the hotel.
Friday - XC ski at Osceola cross country ski center.

Osceola has on-site ski rental and a substantial inventory of ski gear and clothing.
Saturday - depending on skier skills and trail conditions, we'll ski the trails in Winona forest.

This is a very remote area with trails groomed by the local club; alternate is Osceola.
