Audubon Offers Cross-Country Ski Outing

The Jamestown Audubon Center & Sanctuary has planned a cross country ski outing in Allegany State Park.

Allegany’s Art Roscoe Ski Area has 24 miles of maintained cross country ski trails. Because of its elevation, the area often has snow when other places in the region do not. Several loops provide opportunities for novice through advanced skiers.

Audubon’s van will leave from the center at 10 a.m. Saturday and return at 4 p.m. With a capacity of 10 people, once the Audubon van is full, others may join if they provide their own transportation.

The cost is $25 or $15 for Friends of the Nature Center. The fee will be reduced by $5 for those providing their own transportation as long as the Audubon van is full.

Reservations are required by Thursday and can be made by calling 569-2345, emailing or using the online form at

Hollyloft Ski and Bike is offering a special discounted rental price of $10 for the event. Call 483-2330 to order and pick up on Friday by 8 p.m. Audubon can return the equipment.
