12/19/14- ASP J SNYDER: The Art Roscoe Ski Trails officially opened on 12/17/2014.  The upper trails have between 3 and 6 inches of wet snow that has accumulated over the last several days.  The lower trails have little to no coverage.  The ground has not had an opportunity to freeze and the wet snow is insulating the warm ground.  Park staff is on the upper trails now, Sweet Water (seems to have the most snow), Christian (shallow tracks, wet spots and open spots), Leonard’s Run (shallow snow and a lot of bare spots).  The lower trails are almost bare. 
The Summit Warming hut is now open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM every day.

Work Day Horse Power

1025141344aThe 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.

Fundraising Campaign- $12,450!

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.

October 2011- ASP staff and Allegany Nordic members stand behind the donated trail roller purchased with campaign proceeds.

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.

Diminishing financial resources and aging equipment remain significant challenges facing the cross country ski program at Allegany State Park.
