The AMC NY-NoJ Young Members Chapter is proud to announce the 2018 Winter Weekend in Lake Placid, NY. The event was a huge success in 2016 and 2017, and now we'd like to expand it to all our Young Member chapters. Please register via Eventbrite: Nestled in the heart of New York's beautiful Adirondack Mountains, Lake Placid is one of America's top winter destinations. The city played host to the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games, and features easy access to a wide range of winter outdoor activities. Tear up the slopes at nearby Whiteface Mountain, rent a pair of ice skates to glide across Mirror Lake, strap on the Nordic skis for miles of cross-country adventures, tame the blustery High Peaks, or relax by a warm fire. This trip is yours to make! We will aim to follow our itinerary from previous years. Last year, over a dozen intrepid NY-NoJ young members drove up to Lake Placid on the Friday before MLK Jr. weekend, stayed three nights at the Cascade Cross Country Ski Lodge just outside Lake Placid, and returned on Monday with many more great memories than they had before leaving. The Cascade Cross Country Ski Lodge, our planned venue, features a half-dozen heated bunkrooms and showers. You can see more at: IMPORTANT NOTE: Please plan to arrange your own food, and please bring your own sleeping bags! We often do group dinners, but breakfast/lunch is often largely independent. If there is enough interest, we can certainly consider adding a light group breakfast at the lodge. We're looking forward to a great trip! COST ESTIMATES: REQUIRED: Three nights at the Cascade XC Ski Center: $120 OPTIONAL: One day of skiing at Whiteface Mtn: ~$90 (~$140 with ski/snowboard rentals) OPTIONAL: Single-day XC ski pass and rentals at Cascade: ~$30 Feel free to check out any other activities you might be interested in here: APPROXIMATE DRIVING TIMES TO LAKE PLACID: New York: 5 hours Boston: 5 hours Concord, NH: 4 hours Portland, ME: 6 hours Philadelphia: 6 hours Washington, DC: 8 hours
