CAPITAL CAMPAIGN INITIATED
Diminishing financial resources and aging equipment are significant challenges facing the cross country ski program at Allegany State Park. For five years skiers have not paid any fees to enjoy the Art Roscoe Trails and now is the time for us to step forward. The Allegany Nordic Steering Committee and park management are in agreement that new equipment is the most important thing Allegany Nordic can provide to keep trail grooming a part of the skiing experience at ASP.
The future of the skiing program on the Art Roscoe Trails depends in large part on the availability of good grooming equipment. Existing equipment is aging and does not offer flexibility under diverse conditions. Reductions in park staff and budget have impacted the skiing experience at ASP.
Our steering committee and park officials are in agreement that Allegany Nordic can most positively impact the skiing experience through grooming equipment purchases. Please make a generous contribution to this capital campaign.
To facilitate our fundraising effort, we have established a non-endowed account with the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation. The Foundation, which is a 501(c)3 charity, will receive our donations and purchase the equipment on the club’s behalf.
It is very easy to make a donation. All that is required is to:
1) Make your check payable to “Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation” with “Allegany Nordic” in the memo line
2) Complete the CRCF contribution form
3) Mail the check and the form to:
PO Box 206
Olean, NY 14760
You can also contribute online through the CRCF website. Be sure to designate Allegany Nordic as the recipient of your gift.

AN DONATES SINGLE TRACKSETTER- JANUARY 2013
This renovator/tracksetter gives the park flexibility to groom with a Scandic when the Cat may not be appropriate, when one fresh track will suffice mid-week, etc. It is a wood frame with steel components and HDPE tracksetters.
