AAC Winter Outing Now Open to Members

New York Section Winter Outing
Adirondack Rock & River, Keene, New York
January 20-22, 2012

One of our most popular seasonal events, always a sell-out, is our Annual Winter Outing at Rock and River, now in its second decade.
All sort of winter sports are at our doorstep: xc skiing on the Jack Rabbit Trail or at Mt. Van Hoevenberg, ice Climbing at Chapel Pond and elsewhere,
Snowshoeing and Hiking in the High Peaks, Downhill at Whiteface, among other activities too numerous to mention.

As in past years, we have booked the entire facility for the exclusive use of NY Section members and guests. There will be an optional clinic and instruction for beginning ice climbers on Saturday, with all equipment provided, at R&R's private ice climbing park. More advanced instruction or guide services are
also available.

A highlight of the weekend is our Saturday Happy Hour by a roaring fire followed by a buffet dinner and a slide show or two. This year we will feature a
presentation by AAC NE Regional Coordinator and a professional guide, Sarah Garlick, who recently returned from exploratory rock climbing and a first ascent
in Northern Mozambique with Majka Burhardt. Also joining us as a special guest is Kaji Sherpa, who once held the speed record on Everest( 21 hours)

We have very limited accommodations still available at R&R; more is available at local inns or motels. We also welcome members and guests for Saturday
cocktails , dinner and the show only, up to the seating capacity of the dining room.

For more specific details and charges, including availability of rides from Manhattan, please contact Phil Erard at philiperard@nysalpineclub.org
or call 917-617-5891
