Laurel Ridge Work Day & Ski Swap on Saturday, November 9th!
Join PACCSA on Saturday, November 9th for some pre-season fun! We'll be kicking off the day at 10:00 AM with an all-day Ski Swap in the upper warming hut. If you have ill-fitting ski equipment/clothing that needs a new home, or are hunting for some reasonably priced gear, this is your chance! This Ski Swap is a totally free event for anyone interested.
After you check out the Ski Swap, help PACCSA, the Laurel Ridge Ski Concession and DCNR get the Laurel Ridge trail system ready for snow! We'll be doing trail work from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM with a focus on clearing the trails of fallen debris, cutting back invasive saplings, and stacking firewood. There are a lot of trails at Laurel Ridge, so we can use all of the help we can get! All volunteers for the Laurel Ridge trail clear will receive one free ski pass for the 2019/2020 season. In addition, upon the conclusion of the trail clear, the Laurel Ridge Ski Concession will be hosting a picnic with hotdogs and drinks.
Please bring work gloves and hand tools such as loppers, clippers, bow saws, and rakes. If you don't have any of these tools, don't worry! There will be plenty of extras. Dress appropriately for the weather, and since PACCSA work days take place during hunting season, it's always wise to wear bright, visible clothing. Finally, if you're not already registered as a DCNR Conservation Volunteer, please do so online by clicking here.
With everyone's help, we'll have all of the trails clean and clear for the season's first big snowfall!
