Wednesday, Feb. 26 – Cross Country Ski & Yoga
Don't miss the year's last yoga and ski session! Yoga is a perfect partner to cross-country skiing. A session prior to skiing warms the muscles, joints and lungs.

Single yoga session $15. To register, call the Paul Smith's College VIC at (518) 327-6241.￼￼￼

Support the development of maple sugaring at the VIC by adopting a tree for $50.

You’ll also get a quart of maple syrup from the tree when it's ready (shipping not included). Adoption papers are available at the VIC front desk. Makes a great gift!

Wear your big winter bunny boots, but bring your dancing shoes and join us for a night of music and dance. $15 per person, $25 per couple. Dress is Adirondack outdoor casual!
