NORTH HARMONY - A blanket of freshly fallen snow was welcomed by those who participated in the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy's cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing tour.
On Saturday, members and patrons of the CWC gathered at the Loomis Goose Creek wetland preserve to tour the land.

The Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will host a cross country skiing and snow shoeing tour of its Loomis Goose Creek Wetland Preserve on Saturday from 2-3 p.m.
Participants and friends are invited to re-gather afterwards at the Southern Tier Brewing Company.
This preserve is 30 acres in size with 25 acres of wetlands, 450 feet of lakeshore and 3,000 feet of the wild west bank of Goose Creek. The moving creek waters help keep the area more ice-free and available for waterfowl use for extended periods when the rest of the lake is ice covered. The third largest wetland on Chautauqua Lake, the site is also one of the most important fish and wildlife habitats remaining on the lake, providing habitat for kingfishers, heron, mallards,…

The New York State Snowmobile Association is reminding snowmobilers that local trails are not considered officially open until a local club has inspected and cleared trails for the 2012-13 season.
Although the snowmobile season won't begin until after the hunting season ends in late December, association members are encouraging all snowmobilers to use the time to join their local clubs and register their sled.
"Our recent economic impact study shows that our sport contributes $868 million to the state economy," said Dominic Jacangelo, association executive director. "We work with local municipalities and landowners to provide riding options for our members…

Chautauqua County sits directly in the path of lake effect snow storms that gather strength over Lake Erie and drop more than 200 inches of snow annually. More often than not, the region welcomes the holidays with a carpet of white and the season with a frozen crystal wonderland.

With annual snowfall that rivals Colorado ski towns, southwestern New York offers plenty of opportunity for downhill snow sports. Near Findley Lake, the Peek’n Peak Resort and Spa provides an excellent backdrop for true beginners all the way to expert level skiers and snowboarders with 27 slopes, eight chairlifts, three progression terrain parks and a halfpipe. There’s even a tubing…

Summer is summer. Spring is spring. Winter is winter.
But one season is so gorgeous, so resplendent, that two words define it. Hint! Think "autumn leaves" and "fall foliage." Then, think about how often you've enjoyed both at Peek'n Peak Resort and Spa's annual Fall Fest near Findley Lake, N.Y.
The event will celebrate its 25th anniversary this month. You'll find usual festival staples, like the ever-popular pumpkin launch. Did a young Billy Corgan check that out years ago? You have to wonder because visitors sure enjoy smashing pumpkins.
You can ride the ski lift to get an aerial view of fall foliage. Fall Fest also includes a craft show, farmer's market, children's activities, horse and carriage rides…
