SAVE THE DATE! PACCSA Summer Picnic on Saturday, August 5th!

Join PACCSA for our annual summer picnic!  This year's picnic will take place at Laurel Hill State Park on Saturday, August 5th in the groves adjacent to the beach area.  Look for our bright PACCSA and Fischer signs!  We'll be starting at 11 AM with a very brief Board meeting to elect officers for the 2017/2018 ski season.  After that we'll be grilling up some hotdogs and hamburgers and enjoying everything Laurel Hill State Park has to offer.  This event is open to all PACCSA members and their families.  

Please feel free to bring a food item to share with your ski buddies!  Also, Laurel Hill has a beach for swimming and many playgrounds for the kids. It's a great place to canoe, kayak or paddle-board and there's a concession where you can rent boats.  There are also interesting hiking and and mountain bike trails, and the fishing is great.  Some of us might also go for a rollerski, so bring 'em if you got 'em!

Northwoods and Roaring Run Trail Work on Saturday, July 29th!

Get outdoors with PACCSA and the Laurel Mountain Volunteer Group for some summer trail work on the Northwoods and Roaring Run XC ski trail systems!  

We will meet on Saturday, July 29th at the Route 31 pole building parking area (located off of Route 31 at Camp Run Rd., just east of Donagal, PA near the Hidden Valley Ski Resort).  Work will start at 10AM and end the day around 2:30PM.  Projects will include resurfacing wet areas of trail and brush-back work.  Wear sturdy shoes, long pants, and bring a good pair of work gloves. DCNR has a large selection of tools for us to use, but feel free to bring your own loppers and had trimmers if you have them.

See you on the 29th!
