Tupper Lake Brew-Ski Fest Saturday

Tupper Lake is combining my love of skiing with a micro-brew experience and I don’t even have to leave the trail. It isn’t an après ski experience, but more “pendant” skiing. I’ll be experiencing sampling of various local beers during a cross-country ski or snowshoe.

On Saturday, February 23, Tupper Lake Cross-Country Ski Center is grooming their trails for two events, Brew-Ski and its annual Ice Golf Tournament. Both activities sound fun, but my family is going to be hitting the Brew-ski trail. » Continue Reading.

Dave Gibson: Rail Trail Controversy Shows Master Plan Has Teeth

Headlined at this month’s meeting of the Adirondack Park Agency was a vote by the APA members to amend the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan (SLMP) to allow Rail Trails to be added to the definition of a Travel Corridor, and to support a rail trail in the SLMP’s Travel Corridor management guidance.

Prior to the APA decision, which like all Master Plan amendments must be ratified by the Governor, rail trails were not defined or authorized under the SLMP’s Travel Corridor overlay classification. Travel Corridors  applied only to the strip of land constituting the roadbed and right of way of state and interstate highways and the Remsen to Lake Placid railroad right of way, as well those state lands immediately adjacent to these facilities.  Such facilities had to be transportation related- not just recreational. » Continue Reading.
