It is another busy weekend in lovely Lake Placid. The Village is bustling with visitors and locals alike; skiers and winter sports enthusiasts trying to stay warm in the sub-zero temperatures. The coup de grace for the weekend however, is the world-famous full moon cross-country ski party to be held tonight, Saturday, at Art Jubin’s Cascade Ski Touring Center in Lake Placid. For the uninitiated, the full moon parties are a North Country tradition of unparalleled fun. As the name implies, the parties happen on full moon weekends. Revelers can ski to kegs of beer and bonfires placed along the touring center’s lit cross-country ski trails. When tired of braving the cold, skiers head to the warm and hopping bar for dancing to live music by Johnny and the Triumphs with Delia! Be forewarned however, the bouncer on duty for full moon night at Knicker’s, SSS, takes grief from no party animal. SSS will be assisted by Mr. Smolka this month; together this duo is downright menacing and intimidating. If you are coming to the Cascade Ski Touring Full Moon Party, bring your dancing shoes AND your I.D.!
