That’s right, overnight the mountain has added to its base with four more inches of fresh snow. That’s gonna give Spring Skiers an extra incentive to get out and squeeze out a few more days of what’s ben an extraordinary season.

Gore has been able to re-open The Rumor (below the headwall) for experts. This  Saturday, extra value season rates are in effect so  enjoy the snow and savings.  Then on Sunday, gear up for Maple Day offering $42 lift tickets, live music, an amazing maple menu, and plenty of NY maple products for sale (including maple cotton candy!)

Meanwhile, there’s more snow in the forecast for the weekend. Friday night, there’s  a 30% chance of snow showers, with the low around 15. North wind 3-5 mph. 
Saturday: A 30% chance of snow showers, high near 28. North-wind around 6 mph. 
Sunday: Sunny, high near 36. Light and variable wind becoming southwest around 5-8 mph. 
Monday: A 50% chance of snow showers and mixed precipitation, high near 42.


Schroon Lake Marina Hits The Road

Come and see us at the Great Upstate boat Show!

Posted by Schroon Lake Marina on Thursday, March 26, 2015

Since the frigid days of January, there has been a steady flow of big trucks making their way from Indiana to the Schroon Lake Marina.

They’ve been loaded with a variety of Sylvan, Sun Chaser and  StarCraft boats, some already spoken for and some up for grabs. And this weekend, starting today, you can see many of the new 2015 models being offered by the Schroon Lake Marina at the Great Upstate Boat Show at Glens Falls.

From the Marina’s Craig Kennedy:  “Stop over to see the only Sylvan S5 Pontoon boat in New York! And we have it in our booth at the Great Upstate Boat Show! This isn't your parent’s pontoon. It is powered by a Mercury Verado 300hp engine! Come check it out! We are also excited to add Yamaha Marine engines to our product mix. You asked for it! So here they are!”

Meanwhile, the Marina is looking for enthusiastic, hardworking summer employees and dock installers. A driver’s license and the ability to work weekends are a must. 

Where Paradox Brewery Goes, So Does Schroon

This weekend the folks at Schroon’s own Paradox Brewery have a busy few days ahead. Starting tonight, PDX will be front and center at the Night at the Brewseum – the beer and military gear event  -- in Saratoga. There’s also the Tap Takeover at The Local Pub and Teahouse. And on Saturday, there’s the Glens Falls Brewfest.

These high profile events don’t just draw attention to the fine, hand crafted brews of PDX, but rather act as a travelling PR machine for our hamlet!!!. Once folks realize Schroon is the home of PDX, that make Schroon a destination, bringing folks to our route 9 restaurants and downtown pubs, stores and restaurants on Main Street.

So a hat tip to brewery founders Paul Mrocka and his wife Joan and their investment partners. You rock. So raise a glass this weekend at PDX’s Tasting Room. Friday from 4pm -7pm, Saturday 12pm - 6pm  and Sun 12pm – 4pm.

RIP: Joan Jenks 1936 - 2015
