Suggestions and Resources for Winter Fitness and Wellness Activities!
The North Country Guide link provides info on places to ski and snowshoe and it may be worth pointing out that Friends of Higley State Park constructed a lodge at the park which is open 8 to 3 daily, and Tues and Thurs evenings. They also offer ski and snowshoe rentals every day from 8 am-3 pm. The Higley trails are groomed daily. The Robert Moses Nature Center in Massena offers free cross country ski and snow shoes for use on their trails.
You also may want to double check with the Outdoor Studies Program for signing out cross-country skis and snowshoes! They are located in the lower level of Newell by the climbing wall. Their link is listed below.
Please look for announcements on schedule changes for open skating at Appleton Arena, but typically the schedule is Monday-Thursday Open Skate: 11:45 AM -12:45 PM and Open Hockey: 12:45 PM-1:45 PM.
Both the Canton Pavillion and Pine Street Arena in Potsdam have open skating hours with ice skates available for rent. Lastly, Titus Mountain is a only a little over an hour away from Canton and offers downhill skiing, snow boarding, and snow tubing at reasonable prices.
