Join us for our traditional season opener trip and New Years celebration at the wonderful Craftsbury Outdoor Center in Craftsbury, VT.

The trip cost of $430 per person includes 4 nights lodging, 12 meals, and trail passes for 5 days. For that you can ski out the door on a huge trail system that extends into the village of Craftsbury and on to Highland Lodge as well as to the Catamount Trail which goes north to Canada and south to Massachusetts. In addition there is an extensive system of snowshoe trails for your enjoyment.

Lessons and rentals are available. On New Year's Eve we celebrate with a midnight bonfire and complimentary champagne. Limited toiletries, clothing, beer and wine are available for purchase at the office. Best of all, you can park your car when you arrive and not need it 'til it's time to leave. Of course you can also choose to drive to visit the XC trail system at Stowe - less than an hour away.

This year we have reserved an apartment and one of the new cabins as well as the traditional dormitory rooms. Priority for the apartment and the cabin will be given to family groups and groups of 4 who want to room together.

  • The dorm rooms have 2 single beds (a few have a double bed) with the bathroom down the hall.
  • The apartment has two bedrooms with private bath as well as a small kitchen and living room.
  • The cabin has room for 4 with 2 single beds in the living room (a clever set of tracks allow them to be locked together) and 2 single beds in a loft area. It also has a bathroom and a small kitchenette.

When submitting your $150 per person deposit, please indicate whether you prefer a dorm room, the cabin or the apartment. Indicate your preferred roommate for the dorm room or preferred roommates (3) for the apartment or cabin.

Direct your questions to Dave LeRoy at dhlbbh@pa.net.

The Cazenovia trip returns by popular demand. This trip combines an old favorite ski venue, Highland Forest County Park, with two other opportunities, Stoney Pond State Forest and Green Lakes State Park. The charming village of Caz is a short drive (<10 miles) from all ski venues; it is situated on little-known Cazenovia Lake, 20 miles southeast of Syracuse.

We’ll be staying, as usual, at the Brae Loch Inn, which everyone who has attended this trip raves about. The innkeeper’s family has owned the house since its opening in 1946. All rooms have private bath and shower, color TV, individual heat control, and phones. The house is wired for Wi-Fi. The Inn serves an ample continental breakfast, with more than enough food to fuel you for a day of skiing. The offerings include fruit, yogurt, cereal, muffins, often one or two quiches, and more. Saturday dinner is also at the Inn. Lunches and dinners are not included in the trip price.

Highland Forest is in the extreme southeastern corner of Onondaga County and occupies some of the highest terrain in that county (up to 1600 ft. elevation). That means it’s in a good position to capture lake-effect snows. The trails are groomed, and there is a modest entry fee. There is more skiing here than you can do in one day, with a full variety of terrain. The park also has a food concession and a beautiful indoor eating area in a recently-built lodge.

Stoney Pond has ungroomed back-country trails in the town(ship) of Nelson, a few miles southeast of Caz. We have yet to fully explore this area. Skiing here is free, and the trails are, in general, more demanding than those at Highland, mainly because they aren’t groomed and are narrower. No food concession here; bring your own.

Green Lakes, a few miles north of Fayetteville, has level and hilly trails, and there is no parking or admission charge in the winter. The park’s trails can easily fill a day of skiing. As at Stoney Pond, bring your own food.

Lodging and gratuity are included in the cost. Meals are not included, other than two breakfasts at the Inn. Trail fees for the venues that have them also are not included.

Caz is the closest weekend ski venue outside of Pennsylvania, so take advantage of the proximity and reserve your spot. Caz is about a 5-hour drive from Harrisburg or Lancaster, up I-81 almost to Syracuse, then 20 miles east.

Join us for an outstanding weekend of skiing and relaxing at the charming 1880 House in downtown Pulaski, NY. This B&B is situated on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario where the "Lake Effect" drops more average snowfall than anywhere else east of the Rocky Mountains. Our host, Linda Tarbox, has taken excellent care of us in the past and is sure to do so this year. Linda is again offering delicious dinners both Saturday and Sunday nights. The trip cost includes "cauldrons" of Après-ski soup on the stove and a hot breakfast each morning and two dinners. The rooms are comfortable and the house decor is charming. Most of the rooms have private baths and a few have a shared bath. The 1880 House is a three-story building and the leader does consider that when making room assignments. There is a very nice living room with fireplace on the first floor which adjoins the dining room. All rooms have very comfortable twin beds that are pushed together to make a king bed for couples or split apart for solo travelers. All rooms have flat panel TVs. There is a ski-waxing room downstairs. Wi-fi service is available for guests.

The Pulaski area of the Tug Hill Plateau offers a selection of commercial and public cross-country ski venues, including the Winona Forest trails, Osceola Tug Hill Cross-Country Ski Center, Barnes Corners Ski Trails and others. Skiers of all ability levels will find what they are looking for.

Pulaski is an easy, six-hour drive, straight up I-81, about an hour above Syracuse. If you wish to extend your stay, Peg will put you in touch with Linda.

Bring your own trail lunch goodies. Trail fees are not included. Lodging, taxes and tips are included in the total cost. This trip is on Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend.

A current passport is mandatory for crossing the US-Canada border.

This season will find us staying, once again, at the Chalets Chanteclair between the charming villages of Val-David and Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts.

The Laurentians have, deservedly, become a favorite Canadian destination. With an embarrassment of beautiful groomed trail systems, we get to ski a uniquely different trail system almost every day. Ranging from rail-trail ease to thrilling mile-long descents, most of the trails boast trail-side warming huts. Trails we usually ski include Parc Dufresne XC Ski, Camping Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, the Diable Network of Parc du Mont-Tremblant, Le P'tit Train du Nord, Morin Heights and Forêt Ouareau. (Trail fees are not included.)

The modern, three-bedroom chalets we'll be staying at are in a complex named Chalets Chanteclair. The towns on both sides of our digs are delightful with many small shops and restaurants. While French is the first language in this area, most shop owners speak very good English and are most helpful. Free WiFi is available in the Chalets Chanteclair office and at many area businesses.

The cost of breakfasts and dinners, most prepared by trip participants, are included in the price for the trip. We may also choose to have a meal at a local restaurant one of the nights. Lunches are on your own.

Please join us for a delightful, 6-day week enjoying the best the legendary Laurentian Mountains have to offer!

Kick 'n Gliders are headed to Stowe, VT after a wonderful time there the last couple of years. Great snow - great people.

We'll stay again at the Commodores Inn on the south side of town. All rooms are accessed from within the building and are equipped with refrigerators as well as all the usual amenities you'd expect in a good hotel including three large jacuzzis, two saunas and an indoor pool. There is fast WiFi, of course, and a game room offers pool and table tennis.

All breakfasts and three dinners will be covered in the trip cost. The breakfasts and dinners will be a buffet at the Commodores Inn Restaurant. For the other two dinners: we can eat together at fine restaurants in Stowe or you can eat on your own which could include the Commodores Inn Restaurant. PLEASE NOTE: If you decide to eat either of these two dinners at the Commodores, you will be responsible for the cost. You are responsible for all your lunches, usually eaten on the trail. Some venues do have soup and other lunch items for sale. There is also a sports lounge adjacent to the dining room at the Commodores.

The principal ski centers in Stowe include the Stowe Mountain Resort and the Trapp Family Lodge. Both touring centers feature interconnections to public trails, linking together the largest groomed trail network in the east. Easy drives from town are both Bolton Valley Resort and Craftsbury Outdoor Center. Rentals and lessons are available at all those locations. In addition to its groomed ski center, Bolton Valley also offers an extensive backcountry ski area. Other public trails abound in the area including the Stowe Recreational Path, Weisner Woods, Sterling Forest, and the Catamount Trail. There are lots of both groomed and back country ski options.

Stowe village boasts a wide variety of shops raging from skiing apparel and equipment to gift items and Vermont-made products.

Mount Mansfield, Stowe, Smugglers Notch, and Bolton Valley promise downhill thrills for those so inclined.

A free shuttle bus service links all the major locations in the village, including our Inn, with the surrounding ski venues.

Come enjoy the Stowe experience with your fellow Kick 'n Gliders!

The attractions on this trip include abundant cross-country skiing and sledding and great food.

The Susquehannock Lodge has direct access to hundreds of cross-country ski trails right out of our back door. It is a perfect place for you to enjoy the quiet setting of Pennsylvania's Northwoods, a place where there are more deer than people. Because of its high elevation, Potter Co. is known to get good lake effect snow. Nearby Patterson Park typically has groomed trails for skate and traditional skiing. Another favorite is to park at the Forestry District Office at the top of the hill and ski the Black Forest Trail 8 miles back to the lodge. Check the Susquehannock website for additional information: http://susquehannock-lodge.com

Lodging includes next day breakfast and dinner (optional arrival night dinner: $18 must be prearranged) Arrive anytime from Thursday morning through late Friday. The final dinner on Sunday will be served at about 2 as a late lunch. If you are traveling on to Quebec and are planning for an early departure, you can leave after breakfast and subtract the $18 cost of Sunday dinner. Lunch is on our own, but optional bag lunches consisting of a sandwich, cookies, fruit and a candy bar and costing $8.50 can be ordered on site.

Here is an exciting ski weekend that offers the entire family a complete skiing and sledding experience! (Contact Gil to try one of his unique single or double runner sleds.)

Four years have passed since the Kick 'n Gliders last scheduled a trip to visit Québec City, Canada to ski and attend the winter carnival. It's time to revisit the charming city of Québec.

We'll be staying again at the Hotel Clarendon (www.hotelclarendon.com) within the walls of historic Old Québec City and within easy walking distance of all local attractions--a "European" sojourn minus the air fares. During our visit the Winter Carnival will be taking place. There is no end of things to see and do. Check out www.quebecregion.com/en/. View the preliminary announcement of the 2018 Winter Carnival at http://carnaval.qc.ca/en/.

A Full American Breakfast the first two mornings at the hotel is included. All other meals, parking and ski passes (group discount and usually senior discount for all if many seniors in group) are extra.

Duchesnay, Camp-Mercier, and Mont-Sainte-Anne afford vast networks of lovely, impeccably groomed, albeit wide green and blue trails. The Plaines d'Abraham, a city park, offers groomed trails overlooking the St. Lawrence River. A recently discovered favorite, Charlesbourg, presents us with the more intimate narrow trails that are increasingly difficult to find.

For those driving from Harrisburg the distance is 670 miles. If driving from the Susquehannock Lodge, the distance is 580 miles. If driving from Stowe, VT, the distance is 233 miles. If continuing on to Bethel, ME, the distance is 254 miles. A current passport is mandatory for crossing the US-Canada border.

Come join us as we enjoy skiing and a Winter Carnival in a setting of Old World charm.

Bethel Maine is the cross country capital of Maine and also its most beautiful mountain town, according to its own literature. In fact, Bethel is a quaint and prosperous New England town with a large town square surrounded by attractive old buildings and the home to Gould Academy. The town is located on the Androscoggin River and has many nice restaurants.

The area has a number of fine ski venues including Carters with 55 K of trails, Gould Academy with 40 K of trails, and the Bethel Inn with 35 K of trails, all of which are in or close to Bethel. The most interesting cross country venue might be the John Roderick Trail System and Broomhall Stadium in Rumford Maine. This area is 40 minutes away and has 17 K of trails used for competitive events. The Chisholm Ski Club which maintains the facilities has hosted several world class Nordic skiing events including the US Cross Country Championships in 2012 and 2010.

For downhill skiers Sunday River is located just north of Bethel. Some consider it the best ski area in the East. Significantly discounted tickets are available if purchased in advance. Mt Abrams, a much smaller and area is nearby and Wildcat is 40 minutes away.

We will be staying in the 10 room Chapman Inn (chapmaninn.com) which is in the center of town. There will likely be a maximum of two per room. The inn has a dining room where breakfast to order will be served by the inn daily and at least four meals will be served by the club. There is a lounge with a TV off the dining room which together provide a good area for socializing. There is a laundry area and internet is available for free. Towels and linens are provided.

Trip costs include five nights, five inn prepared hot breakfasts, four club prepared dinners and skiing at Gould Academy for free during our stay.

We will again be staying in condos at Stonehurst Manor at 3351 White Mountain Highway (Rt. 16), N Conway, NY, 603-356-3113, just north of the town proper. We will be staying in three three-bedroom condos that are quite homey and comfy, as well as being well equipped for meal prep and relaxation after skiing. Each unit also has 2-1/2 baths, a laundry area, and either gas or wood-burning stove/fireplace and color cable TV in the living room. Internet service is available, but not always reliable. Towels and linens are provided, and trip cost includes breakfasts and dinners for 3-4 nights prepared by participants. You are responsible for lunches usually on the trails, but some groomed venues do have lunch items available for purchase in the lodge. For meals other nights there are plenty of good restaurants in the area.

Snow is usually quite plentiful here, and there are numerous ski venues to choose from, anywhere from right out our condo doors, to a ½ hour to 45 minute drive away, with wonderfully groomed trails: Bear Notch, Bretton Woods, Jackson XC Center, Great Glen to name a few. All have reasonable trail fees. Backcountry trails abound on un-groomed public trails. I have not skied these, but several "outfitter" ski shops in the area can provide maps and give advice on trails that suit a group's needs. And for those downhillers amongst us, there is quite a selection of great downhill skiing as well. For non-skiers there are plenty of outlet stores and quaint shops in town, as well as a cool weather museum sponsored by Mt. Washington Observatory.

Come enjoy the White Mountains of New Hampshire!

We're moving to a new house this year, again on President's weekend, Feb. 16-20 (arrival Friday, departure Tuesday). The house is a short walk from the center of town, so you won't need to drive if you want après- or instead-of ski activities. Capacity is 10, but that could be lower if a lot of singles sign up. In other words, don't wait! You know how those singles can be!

As for the skiing, there are many choices for groomed and ungroomed trails in the Placid area. All levels of skiers can be accommodated (though not necessarily all at every venue). We will ski one day at Mt. Van Hoevenberg, this leader's favorite touring center. Another day is likely to be at the VIC (Visitors Information Center) at Paul Smiths, which is now run by the adjacent college of the same name. There is now a fee there, but the trail network has been enlarged and there is grooming. There are numerous back-country trails in the area, and the Fish Pond truck trail and the Raquette Falls trail may be among the choices used this year. Trail fees for the venues that have them are not included.

The trip price has been REDUCED this year to $375 pp. Breakfasts and dinners are included in the price. We have usually had good ski conditions on President's weekend, so this is a low-risk trip in terms of finding adequate snow. This trip usually fills up fast, so don't delay signing up.

Nearby, inexpensive Presidents Day weekend Saturday-Monday ski trip.

Breakfasts and dinners, prepared by trip participants, are included.

You will be responsible for your own snacks and lunches plus any trail fees.

We will stay in fairly rustic cabins in Kooser State Park. The cabins have electricity and indoor plumbing with hot water at the kitchen sink, full size refrigerator/freezer, microwave and stove/oven. Electric nonadjustable baseboard heat keeps cabin temperatures above freezing. A wood stove/fireplace in each cabin need to be tended to keep temperatures comfortable. Firewood is provided by the park. Sleeping arrangements are a mix of double beds, single beds, bunks and lofts. A modern shower/restroom facility in a separate building is centrally located in the cabin area.

More details as to what you need to bring along will be sent out the participants closer to the trip date.

We will plan on skiing at Laurel Ridge State Park's 20+ miles of groomed trails (fee area) for our full day of skiing on Sunday.

No fee skiing at Kooser and nearby Forbes State Forest provides partial day ski options for Saturday afternoon and Monday morning.

Once, again, we'll stay at the beautifully renovated North Country Manor in Boonville, NY, on the east side of Tug Hill. The Manor is a carefully restored mansion just outside town. The rooms are beautifully decorated with period furnishings. All have private or semi-private baths. There are big-screen TVs and Wi-Fi.

Breakfast is served each morning in the spacious dining room and may include specialties such as French toast, fruit salad, southwest egg bake and others. We'll probably order pizza & salad on our first night and have chili & salad another night, and we'll visit local restaurants for our other dinners. Coffee, tea and cocoa are available all day. Lunch is on your own.

Skiing opportunities abound on the east side of Tug Hill and are familiar to many of us. They include all-time favorite, Carpenter Road, as well as the three, FREE groomed trails systems operated by BREIA. There are also Confusion Flats, Whetstone Gulf State Park, Barnes Corners and others. And, you can make the easy drive to Osceola Tug Hill Ski Center where you can browse the largest selection of cross-country gear in the east between sessions skiing on the center's nicely designed trail system. While most of the trails in the area are easy to moderate in difficulty there are several thrilling/challenging ones if you choose to seek them out.

Join us for a weekend of great company, great ski trails and great lake-effect snows on the Tug Hill Plateau!

This trip is offered as either a three or four night trip. Sign up for either option.

Rocky Point Resort has been a popular destination for Kick ‘n Gliders for many years. The condos are located at the Eastern end of Fourth Lake in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. We have reserved three 3-bedroom condos for this long weekend trip.

The weekend starts when we meet for dinner Friday night. The preparation of dinner each night thereafter is a shared effort. Each night’s dinner is hosted by one of the condo's residents, with the other condos assembling there. Even though it’s usually starting to thaw here in PA, there is plenty of snow in the Adirondacks for this trip. There are skiing opportunities for everyone from beginner to advanced skiers, from the groomed trails nearby in the Fern Park area in Inlet, or the gentle slopes of nearly golf courses with groomed trails. Others may want to ski the more challenging woodland and back country trails. Everyone has a good time no matter where they ski.

After skiing we often use the pool and hot tub back at the resort to relax tired muscles and later for the traditional hors d'oeuvres gathering.

Save some time to visit local outdoor shops where you'll find excellent season-end bargains, replace worn-out equipment or buy that “got to have” item.

The three night option includes three nights lodging, two dinners with the group and three breakfasts. Bed linens and towels are supplied. The four night options includes four nights lodging, three dinners with the group, four breakfasts and linens and towels. You will need to bring trail snacks and lunch fixings as lunch is often eaten on the trail. You will also want to bring your favorite apres-ski beverages and refreshments. The condos have fireplaces, dishwashers and dryers. As mentioned above a pool and hot tub are available for our use.

The trip to Inlet is about a six hour drive from our area in Central PA.
