Welcoming the New Year in the Adirondacks


The weather is cooperating with my and most everyone’s intention to start the new year off right. We received three inches of snow overnight, and as you can see from the weather dog, it is still snowing. The forecast calls for a winter storm heading our way this Tuesday through Wednesday. Hooray! We needed a fresh layer on the wonderful but rock solid base we had. I have to admit, yesterday’s ski at Mount Van Hoevenberg was pretty scratchy and fast. As usual, there were no complaints, only smiles. My ski friend and I were happy simply because we were outside in the lovely Adirondack Mountains, despite the less than perfect conditions. Anyway, back to the impending new year….
Saranac Lake is having their First Night celebration which was a big hit last year. The Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) has “joined forces with the Lake Placid-Wilmington Connecting Youth to Communities (CYC) and the Reiss Foundation to offer Skate Into ’08. This is a safe, alcohol-free and fun way to ring in the new year on Monday, December 31 from 10:30 pm – 12:30 am on the Olympic Speed Skating Oval. For more information on Skate Into ’08, please contact the ORDA Skating Office at (518) 523-1655 x 223.”
For those of you planning to get it going with a fitness program in ’08, you can check out one of my favorite places in Lake Placid; Lake Placid Health and Fitness - the gym. Have fun tonight - party hearty, but party healthy!
