Victor, NY— On Saturday, June 27 at 9:00 am, a community of cross country runners will gather again at Ganondagan State Historic Site to take on the demanding “Charlie’s Old Goat Run.” This challenging seven-mile (plus or minus) trail race leads runners through hills, streams, rocky outcroppings, slippery mud boardwalks, forests, and lush meadows. It showcases the camaraderie and beauty of off-road running while giving back to the community. Part of the proceeds help maintain Ganondagan’s trails that are free and open to the public year round. 

The staff and guests of Bristol Mountain will gather at 10am on Friday, February 27th, to celebrate the 100 day milestone this season.  “Ask any season passholder and you will hear the excitement in their voices when they talk about how great the snow conditions have been this season”, remarked Marketing Director, Drew Broderick.  "We were lucky to get off to an early start this season, opening one week before Thanksgiving, which is our target date.  We have lots of natural snow mixed in with our man-made snow. That, combined with colder temperatures, has made for really great conditions”, exclaims Broderick.
