Ski the Ridge Trail in the Susquehannock Forest

Update:  I  am planning to ski this trail in January with a different group (from Buffalo).  At this time, I don't feel I have the navigational skills to lead a group on this 7 Mile trail. After practicing with a map and compass I hope to be able to do that.  Thank you for all interest expressed.  I know that the lodge is already full for this weekend. 


The Susquehannock Lodge: Spacious accommodations with a "cozy" feel

Let's cross country ski the Ridge Trail in 2015. I have skied it twice. We stage cars at the Visitor Center on Rt. 6 in Ulysses, PA and ski to the Susquehannock Lodge where hot meal and drinks await us. The trail is 6-7 miles but a section of it is a gradual downhill that is the sweetest run I've ever done in cross country. Let's plan for next winter. The Susquehannock Lodge is a bed & breakfast with plenty of cozy rooms and a spacious dining area and living room that is ideal for groups of about 30 people. The more advance notice we give, we can reserve the lodge for NEPA only.

    It appears that this is not going to happen and you say the lodge is full. I changed my RSVP to no. Bummer.

    I have never cross country skied before. Will this be too difficult for a first timer?

    Thank you for all the interest. In 2015, the last weekend in Jan would work for me. As the time approaches, I'll post a new event. It would fun to bring a couple friends and meet you all to ski.

      LOL! You'll love this.....I went out yesterday to run "in the sun on dry roads". About 5min into the run I spied a couple skiing and chatted with them about the conditions right now (I thought not the greatest) and wished them fun. About 15mins later I was back at my car trading my sneakers for my skis. It was a great afternoon for skiing!

      Wow, that is great!! I've only been out a few times this year:(. I'd love to join you as it is my all-time favorite trail (even with the great trails in WNY).

      Cari, Wonderful. I love to see new people in the sport. It is super fun, safe and so good for us. Getting the equipment is What stalls people. And worry about being cold. I hope to make it out to an event in 2014. If you have any questions about gear, outdoor clothing and getting started in skiing, please ask. Maureen

      Let me know how plans play out as it gets closer. I'll still consider it but my work schedule changes a lot.
