Powder and smiles for Theresa's Tour, 2017
Each year long-time friends of the Jackrabbit Ski Trail get together to pay homage to Theresa Klauck. Before her unexpected death in 2001, Theresa was a dedicated volunteer on the Jackrabbit, and served on the Adirondack Ski Touring Council's Board of Directors from 1992 to 1994. The bridge just north of Craig Wood was constructed and dedicated in her honor.
After a two-year pandemic hiatus, BETA is bringing back the 28th Annual "Ski-to-Swim" Party, a family-friendly FUN-raiser going back to the early days of the Jackrabbit Trail. And while the party will look a bit different, our goal is the same:
To get people out on skis.
Sunday, January 29
Jackrabbit Trail & Crowne Plaza Hotel, Lake Placid
12pm to 6pm
This one is for the kids. This year the indoor portion of the Ski-To-Swim Party at the Crowne Plaza will be reserved for kids and their parents and chaperones. BETA has grown significantly since the last pool party in 2020, which is AWESOME, but we've also OUT-grown the space. We want to honor a firm 50 person limit in the hotel's pool area. RSVP will be required and is first come, first served.
Families and friends are encouraged to join a late morning ski tour on the Jackrabbit Ski Trail and finish at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Lake Placid. Or simply come for the swimming in the afternoon. Thanks to the Lussi family and the Crowne Plaza for making their pool available for this event!
Schedule for Sunday, January 29
Youth Jackrabbit Ski Tour - 12pm to 3pm
Ski the Jackrabbit from the new Scott's Cobble Community Trails at Craig Wood to the village of Lake Placid. Enjoy a thrilling descent to River Rd and then travel on to the Lake Placid Club. Finish with a short walk through the village to the Crowne Plaza. Leave a car at the LP Club if you don't want to walk to the hotel. All skiers are responsible for their own transportation. NOTE: This ski does require comfort on downhills. And please remember, you are welcome to do your own self-guided tour on another favorite trail or section if you'd rather that!
Youth Pool Party - 3pm to 6pm
Swimming, hot-tubbing, food and hot & cold beverages at the Crowne Plaza Hotel pool atrium for kids and parents/chaperones. Of course skiing before is encouraged, but not necessary, just RSVP to the Pool Party! Please remember, space is limited so RSVP is required. You must be a current member to attend. Adults are $25 and kids are free!
**Want to participate but don't have kids? Fret not, we have an option for you. There's no pool involved, but hopefully we'll be swimming in powder by then! Check out the Adult Jackrabbit Ski Tour - SATURDAY January 28th (Yes, the day before the pool party!) Click here for details.
