Something fun to think about now that we may see some snow in the Hudson Valley this weekend. The Open Space Institute is happy to announce that they are now partnered with the Shawangunk Nordic Ski Association (SNSA). They will now maintain cross country ski paths on the River-to-Ridge trail in New Paltz.

This partnership will result in better trail conditions for skiers. The grooming they provide will result in consistent trail conditions and improve access to the public during winter months. According to information provided by the Open Space Institute under this partnership the OSI will be providing the necessary equipment need to maintain the trails and the SNSA will provide the rest.

Winter trails on the River-to-Ridge Trail will run from the Carmine Liberta Bridge in New Paltz to Butterville Road and will be maintained as weather permits. The River-to-Ridge Trail is open year-round from dawn to dusk and admission is free to all trail users. Parking is available at the River-to-Ridge Trail head at 41 Springtown Road in New Paltz. Since the trail is a multi-use trail open year-round to a large variety of activities and trail equipment, the public is reminded to please stay on the trail, be respectful of other users, and yield as warranted.
