Jackson Hill Trail

Thursday, February 25th, 2010
According to your trail rules the only trail to skate ski is the 
Sunfield Trail at Jackson Hill. Looking at the map I cannot locate
that trail. Please advise.

Looks like the kids may have a snow day on Friday, 2/26! Any chance Egypt Rd will be groomed by Friday p.m.? Please advise. Thanks for a GREAT xc ski trail system.

Skied your trails Feb. 19-20

We came out to Boonville from Schenectady for two days of skiing. What a
treat to find so much good snow and trails so expertly groomed. We skied
most of the Egypt Road system one day and did a lot of the Jackson Hill
trails the next day, with a lunch stop in the beautiful warming hut there.
We had heard about the trails from friends and are very glad we took the
time to come out and try them. We’ll definitely be back and will tell our
skiing friends about this place.

Egypt Road Trails Great

Friday, February 19th, 2010

I drove down from Ottawa, Ontario to enjoy the BREIA trails on Feb 17. (We haven’t had snow for five weeks and our trails are all very icy.) I read on your website that all trails would be open to the public the whole day during Presidents’ Day week so I hopped into the car and headed south. You have such a wonderful resource of well groomed and well marked trails! I enjoyed lunch in your beautiful warming hut. I am surprised that there isn’t more publicity as this could be a great tourist destination that could support some local motels and B & Bs. Thanks, BREIA…keep up the good work.

My husband and I visited the Egypt Road trails this past weekend and had a wonderful time. What a generous and unique gift to the community this facility is. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate being able to enjoy these beautiful trails. Thank you so very much!

Alder Creek

Monday, February 8th, 2010
A group of us went to Alder Creek this past weekend. We were so disappointed that the wood stove had been removed from the warming hut.
It was very cold in the hut with the little heat coming out of the electric registers.
Another larger group came in behind us from Delaware. They were all commenting about the absence of the wood stove.
It was part of the whole ambience of skiing there – having the warmth of the hut waiting…
Why was it removed?
