Winter Outing

January 17-19, 2020 (MLK Weekend)

Come out and play in the East’s heaviest snows for a weekend of XC skiing, snowshoeing, and camaraderie at the annual ADK Tug Hill Winter Outing, hosted by the ADK Iroquois Chapter! Explore the numerous groomed and backcountry trails that are within minutes of the clubhouse. Accommodations are at the Mad River Club, a rustic yet comfortable building with a large basement. There is indoor plumbing, electricity, wood stove heat and a large well equipped kitchen. Sleeping will be on the floor. You will need to bring sleeping bag and pad or small cot. If you prefer privacy, a soft bed and your own shower, a list of local accommodations is available. The Mad River Club is located 5 miles east of I-81 via the Sandy Creek-Lacona exit. The exit off of I-81 is 40 miles north of Syracuse and 35 miles south of Watertown.

The full weekend package includes floor space for your sleeping bag and pad, snack Friday evening, breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and a gourmet dinner on Saturday followed by activities. Cost is $100 for the full weekend with or w/out floor space, or $50 for skiing and banquet only on Saturday. All but $20 is refundable up to December 31st.
