We have scheduled winter weekend trips again this year! Since the Tuesday trips are popular, why not try some on Saturdays as well? We will be running the trips similar to last year. This includes some minor COVID restrictions (masks if not socially distanced, so participants who are concerned about COVID are welcome).

Outing locations are chosen based on what we can learn about snow conditions each week. Any of the locations used Tuesdays are possible. Last year we had many “traction gear” hikes when the snow did not cooperate. If the weather is bad, Saturday trips may be rescheduled for Sunday at 10:30am.

In order to attend an outing, you will need to register by contacting the leader for the day you wish to attend. Their name, email address, phone number and the outing location will be sent to all who are on our Trip Outing email list by either the Sunday or Monday, or a few days prior to Saturday. To be included on our email list for more information about future events, email your name and phone number to Andy at [email protected] (for Saturday trips), or to Roy and Sue at [email protected] (518-466-8544) (for Tuesday trips). Tuesday meeting time at the trailhead is usually 9:30am, but check that week’s update email!  Saturday trips will meet at 10:30am unless otherwise noted. We will also post trip information in the ECOS Members’ Group on Facebook.

The outings will be on the easy to intermediate level but no one will be left behind, as faster skier and snowshoers will be accommodated. Please bring your own water and snacks, and dress in layers. It is imperative that ECOS members stay with the group. There will be no official carpooling.
