Winter snow is officially here and that means it’s the perfect time to get outside and enjoy this beautiful season. Yes, it may be cold and yes, you’ll need layers, but YES! the fun you will have exploring the region is worth the chills. The Finger Lakes Museum is proud to offer three winter activities to celebrate all this season has to offer.
They begin their winter wonderland series with cross country skiing at the Cumming Nature Center this Saturday, February 6th, then a Honeoye Lake ice fishing event on Saturday, February 13th with Alan Fess, and then finish the fun back at the Keuka Lake State Park with snowshoeing on Saturday, February 20th. If you’re worried that you don’t have the equipment, don’t fret because they have you covered. For all events that require specific items, you can purchase a ticket that includes those rentals.
Last year’s cross country skiing excursion was a hit. Won’t you join us this year? Register now and participate in this delightful exercise. Perfect for beginners as well as seasoned pros, this event is destined to be great fun.
Have you ever been able to stand on a frozen lake, surrounded by rolling hills, the bluest sky and fresh open air? Honeoye Lake is the shallowest of the eleven Finger Lakes, freezes almost every winter, and is a perfect backdrop for ice fishing. Register today and then bundle up as Alan Fess teaches you the basics.
Snowshoeing is described as floating on the snow and the winter equivalent to a warm summer hike. RV&E will be renting snowshoes for this late February event, just register and we will take care of the rest!
