When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.
Cost: Snowshoe Rentals: $5
Phone: 518-450-0321

Join us at the popular and highly anticipated Annual Candlelight Ski and Snowshoe at Camp Saratoga on Scout Road. Luminaries will glow along 2.5 miles of groomed trails. Along the way you will find fields and forests, warming bonfires, and plenty of hot chocolate!

The terrain is suitable for all levels and ages and includes a smaller 1 mile loop.  We will have a bake sale in the I.P Winter Lodge and donations are always appreciated. We have a limited number of snowshoes that will be available on a first-come first-served basis in the I.P. Winter Lodge off of Parking lot #2. The rental fee is $5/ person. We cannot reserve or hold any snowshoes.  If you want to be sure to have snowshoes for the event we recommend that you rent them from somewhere like the Alpine Sport Shop in Saratoga Springs or at EMS in Wilton.

Since parking is limited and we do not want to cause any damage to the trails at the Preserve & Park by having too many people show up, this year we are requiring registration for the event.  You will need to print out a ticket and show it to one of the parking attendants to be admitted to the event.  We encourage people to carpool and ONLY one ticket is needed per car.  Volunteers do not need to register, they will be able to park in the volunteer parking area at the office.

Parking will be directed by volunteers so please be patient and polite.

This event is weather permitting.

Please call or email for more information or if you are interested in volunteering for this event.
