A Message from the President…

Author: Jim Pippin

Happy mud season.  I hope some of you were able to take advantage of some skiing in central NY or the ADKs last week after the nor’easter passed through.  Mt. Van Hoevenberg reopened for the weekend to accommodate skiers for one last spin around their trails.  Overall, I think here in Rochester we had a great ski season.  The weather held up well and ended up providing consistent skiing here locally from January and on.  Thank you to Darren and all the groomers who worked hard out there to provide us with all the great grooming.

This April newsletter is a “Recap” edition.  Darren Leach provides us with a nice recap of the season’s grooming operations and Jason Hettenbaugh from Rochester Nordic Racing (RNR) provides a very comprehensive rundown of some of the great results that our local Rochester youth racers accomplished this year.

We have also started our annual off-season planning, off-season trail work preparations and installation of the signs that we proposed to the State and the County last year.  Approvals are still pending.  More about that in future newsletters once details are sorted out.

Thank you all for your continued support this year.  Enjoy the rest of your spring and we will be in touch over the summer.  Please reach out to me if you have any question, concerns, or comments.

President, RXCSF
