Come XC ski in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. AG is the OCXC organizer for this outing. Feel free to email me or sign via meetup. You can sign up here and pay for the bus using the link below. Sign ups are on the right-side of the page.
The bus is $10 for members and applicants and $15 for guests. Since we are a large group, we get a group rate for trail passes. The trail fee is $13. Windsor, MA forecast calls for snow today, tomorrow, potential for significant snow accumulation on Thursday and snow showers on Saturday, the day we ski.
Notchview is at 2,000 feet with an added 300' depending on the trails you ski. Check out their website. http://www.thetrustees.org/places-to-visit/berkshires/notchview.html

Directions to I90 East - Exit 11E Schodack Landing Park-n-ride CDTA lot -
PS - Water will be supplied on ride home. You may bring soda, beer and wine for your consumption. The OC tradition is that many people bring snacks/cookies to share on ride home. I will bring a variety of Dutch & Swiss chocolate from my trip a couple of months ago. I will survey people as to where they want to ski on Sat. 2/22 since we've already been to Oseola. Also, I will be collecting money for this bus too. It would really help if people paid by Pay Pal before Thurs at 6pm so I know if we have enough when I go to the OC meeting. - Thanks - AG
