Annual Conference - Lake Placid, NY - April 2&3
Please join CCSAA at its Annual Conference April 2 & 3 at  the Olympic Regional Development Authority in Lake Placid NY .  The Conference is a great opportunity to not only listen to relevant speakers within our Nordic community, but to spend time with other owner/operators of cross country ski areas,  to get some great spring skiing on the silver star trails and share ideas of what works and does not work.   More Info >>>
