ASP Update 2/12- Heart Rate Up has made the decision to to postpone the Art Roscoe Loppet until 3/1/2015.

If you have any questions about reservations please contact the Red House Rental Office at 716-354-9121.
ASP Update 2/13- The Art Roscoe Ski Trails have received about 5 inches of snow over the last 48 hours. Park staff is almost done tracking the entire trail system with the LMC groomer and double track setter. Tracks are a bit shallow but they are firm and with the cold temperatures they should hold up nicely. Temperatures are very cold but the sun is out and winds are tranquil.
ASP Update 2/20- The Art Roscoe Ski Trails have received about 3 inches of additional snow since the last tracking on 2/18/2015. The tracks are hard and in some locations very shallow. We are now very dependent on mother nature to provide fresh snow. Christian Hollow drifted very badly and we are going to attempt to track it again this afternoon. When this is completed this should make for great conditions. Currently all top trails have been tracked and bottom trails will be tracked this afternoon.
ASP Update 2/24- The Art Roscoe Ski Trails have received about 3 inches of additional snow since the last tracking on 2/20/2015. Park staff is on the trail system now renovating and setting a double track. Staff is planning to touch all trails today.
The Art Roscoe Loppet is scheduled for Sunday 3/1/2015 please visit HeartRateUp for more information.
ASP Update 2/25- The Art Roscoe Ski Trails have received about2 inches of additional snow since the last tracking on 2/24/2015. Park staff is on the trail system now renovating and setting a double track. The groomer operators say tracks are deep and solid.
The Art Roscoe Loppet is scheduled for Sunday 3/1/2015 please visit http://www.heartrateup.com/artroscoeloppet3115.html for more information.
Bjorn 2/28- Maybe the best trail conditions and day for skiing so far this year! Only upper loops were retouched yesterday and they are great. More grooming tonight for the race tomorrow.
The 10/25 work day and pot luck was a huge success/ Crews cleaned and cut back all trails but Snow Snake. The Christian Hollow snow fence was also re-set.
And the chili selection at the pot-luck was of gormet proportions!
Remember to thank the gritty skiers that help keep the trails clear.
Allegany Nordic’s capital campaign is approaching the 3-year mark and we have received contributions totaling more than most of us thought was possible. We’ve received well over $11,000 in contributions and we have contributed three pieces of grooming equipment for the park and refurbished a couple more. This is no small accomplishment and we can all be proud of this success.Please visit the CONTRIBUTE page to see the list of donors who have given generously.
More than 80 generous contributions got us to this point, many with two and some with three contributions. 15% of the dollar total came from Canada. 40% came from the greater Buffalo area.
Ten contributors have made compelling statements about why they have donated to the campaign. Click here to view their statements.
Thanks to all those who have made the campaign a success. And to those who have yet to contribute, please come forward with your financial support. Visit the CONTRIBUTE page to learn more about the equipment we hope to purchase and how to make a tax-deductible donation.
