What a year on the Canal Trail

Friday, March 27th, 2009

Although there may be a few more days left, it does seem that the cross country season is winding to a close. It was still pretty darn good this afternoon (3/25) is getting thin is a few spots between the top of the gorge and Pixley Falls.

It has been simply unbelievable on the canal trail this year thanks to BREIA’s efforts.

I must apologize for not being very rigorous in signing in when I skied so if I could remedy that by letting you know now, you can up your usage rates. I was on the canal trail 72 times (and probably signed in 3 times). My wife was with me for 48 of those times (including the 3 that I signed us in).

So once more, thank you for maintaining all the BREIA trails. It was simply wonderful all ski season.

What a great place

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

I moved from Upstate NY to Indiana after college for work. My Mom still lives in Trenton Falls so we spend a lot of time back there during the year. I discovered the BREIA trails about three years ago; although my Mom tells me that she and my Dad used to ski there years ago. It is one of the greatest treasures of the North Country. On a cold, crisp, winter morning there is no better experience than skiing up to the Egypt Road warming hut with a fire going in the wood stove, warming yourself by the stove, and then heading off to ski down along the creek. In Indiana we have nothing like the BREIA trails although I wish we did. Life would be a lot more enjoyable.

Great Ski Trip

I came up with a group of students from Hobart and William Smith
Colleges. We had a very enjoyable day on the BREIA trails (Egypt
Road). The trails were very impressive, and our group, primarily made
up of beginners, had a great first experience cross country skiing.

Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful resource! We will
definitely be back soon!
