Tupper Lake, NY — This village’s annual Brew-Ski returns this Saturday, Feb. 23, and participants can expect plenty of fresh snow this year. With a several-inch base and more expected before Saturday, the James C. Frenette Sr. Recreational Trails, located at the Tupper Lake Golf Course, will provide participants an optimal Brew-Ski experience.
For $10, embark on a craft-beer-and-skiing tour and glide along the growing network of groomed trails, stopping along the way to sample the region’s best brews. The 2019 Tupper Lake Brew-Ski will highlight eight local breweries that will be serving their craft beers along the one-and-a-half miles of beautifully maintained ski trails at the Tupper Lake Golf Course. Kids 12 and under are free.
Breweries will bring their hops to the snow at several tasting stations along the trails, pouring samples as skiers and snow showers gather and mingle at fire pits along the way.
The event will include the following North Country and Adirondack breweries: Raquette River Brewing, Big Tupper Brewing; Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, Big Slide Brewery and Public House, Blue Line Brewery, Oval Craft Brewing, Valcour Brewing Company, and Great Adirondack Brewing Company.
High Peaks Cyclery will be on site with free ski and snowshoe rentals, as well as fat tire bikes.
MAC’s Safe Ride will operate from noon-4 p.m. to provide transportation to participants.
This year, there will be more kid-friendly activities including a hot chocolate bar, The Wild Center pass giveaways, an adjacent sledding hill, and kids’ ski and snowshoe rentals.
Also occurring simultaneously is the Fire & Ice Golf Tournament from noon-4 p.m on the golf course. Three-person teams will play two rounds at the five-hole course. The cost is $60 per team with the proceeds benefiting the Lion’s Club community projects.
