Summerstown Trails remain open for snowshoeing, skiing

sean Feb 23, 2017 - 3:26pm

According to Jean-Pierre Tibi of FOTST, the trails in the Summerstown Forest remain open for snowshoeing and skiing, though the mild weather is taking its toll on the snow.

Today, a group of students from CCVS will be taking advantage of the facilities.

Tibi is optimistic that the base will survive the mild weather and forecast rain, as the trails have been hard-packed by hundreds of school kids in recent weeks. The snow in the forest itself is quickly disappearing.

Last Monday, for Family Day, the Summerstown Forest hosted several hundred visitors, including 278 who took advantage of the free equipment rental. Tibi believes that many of these individuals were first-time visitors.

FOTST has a moonlight outing for members planned for March 10. The evening will wrap up with everyone retiring to Jack's Pub in Williamstown.
