Adirondack Cabin Fever 2013 - 3
See Us For ALL Your Winter events, pursuits abound in Warren County Motor Sports Needs! LAKE GEORGE — While frigid weather routinely curtails activities elsewhere, the southern Adirondacks are renowned for their wealth of winter activities, tailored for all ages and interests. Whether it’s several high profile winter carnivals, skiing, snowmobiling, guided winter hiking or ice fishing — or just browsing in quaint shops or world-famous art galleries — Warren County has a lot in store for visitors and residents alike. Top area events in the region are headed up by the Lake George Winter Carnival, which for 52 years has been offering a wide variety of activities on each of the weekends in February. This year ’s Lake George Winter Carnival offers a full roster of events, including motor vehicles racing on ice, as well as more reflective pursuits. Every weekend, the family fun includes children’s games, balloon and helicopter rides, ATV wagon excursions, a giant tubing slide, an alpaca zoo, and cook-offs of savory food. Featured each Saturday are a bonfire on the beach with entertainment and s’mores, followed by fireworks. Fun contests over the carnival weekends include a tavern competition and Glacier Golf, several scavenger hunts and flag football. This year, Snowmobile racing is back at the Lake George carnival, but instead of competing on the frozen lake surface, the sleds will be flying off berms and careening around curves in Snocross events on Feb. 9 and 10 — a favorite of fans in the northeast. Other motorized races follow for the next three weeks. Professional and amateur motorcycle and ATV racers will be competing on ice on Feb. 16 and 17. The next weekend brings the annual automobile races on ice, which includes sports cars and weird modified vehicles. For a detailed schedule of events, see: www.lakegeorgewintercarnival.com or call 240-0809. While the motorized races prevail at Lake George, the new Brant Lake Winter Carnival, to be held Saturday Feb. 9 on the ice in front off Jimbo’s Club, offers more participatory action. The event begins with a fun adult snowshoe softball showdown at 11 a.m. and continues with a myriad of activities all day. Such offerings include a curling sport demonstration, an outhouse race, a broomball tournament, flag hockey, Frisbee golf, ice bowling, putter golf, and a hockey shoot-out. Plans also call for an expo of vintage snowmobiles and a chainsaw artist. Children’s activities include an ice fishing tourney and instruction, snow sculpting, a snowman building contest and a parent-child sled race. Cross-country skiing, ice skating and self-guided snowshoeing tours will be available on the lake. Plenty of food will be available nearby. During the early evening hours, the Ray Alexander Jazz Trio will be playing inside Jimbo’s. One of Warrensburg’s top winter attractions is Hickory Ski Center for that classic

Adirondack Cabin Fever 2013 - 9
Safety first for outdoor enthusiasts in wintertime W
inter is a special time of year for sportsmen. The great outdoors beckons men and women in the wintertime, when skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and sledding are just a few of the many cold weather activities to entice athletes out of their homes. Though winter sports can help fend off cabin fever, those who don't exercise certain safety precautions might find themselves dealing with another kind of fever. Cold weather can leave men, women and children susceptible to illness or injury if they aren't careful. The following are a few safety tips for winter sportsmen who want to make the most of the coming winter sports season.
Clothing Inadequate clothing is one of the easiest ways a winter sportsmen can fall victim to illness or injury . But the right clothing can go a long way toward ensuring this winter sports season is fun and illness- and injury-free. * Wear protective head gear. Protective headgear can help sportsmen avoid colds and head injuries. When venturing outdoors in the winter, always wear a protective wool ski cap. Most body heat is lost through the head, but wool caps help your body retain warmth on cold days and nights. In addition, sportsmen should always wear protective headgear when skiing, sledding, snowboarding or playing ice hockey. Even the most experienced sportsmen can suffer a head injury when playing a winter sport, but the appropriate headgear can prevent head injuries to veteran and novice athletes alike. * Dress in layers. Dressing in layers is another way to stay warm and prevent illness in the winter months. Kids are especially susceptible to cold weather, so parents should dress them in one more layer than they dress themselves. When wearing scarves, sportsmen should tuck their scarves in so they don't get tangled with sporting equipment. * Remove drawstrings from kids' clothing. Drawstrings on winter hats, overcoats and pants can prove harmful to children. These drawstrings can easily get tangled and lead to strangulation. Parents should remove all drawstrings from kids' winter clothing before kids participate in winter sports.
Ice skating & hockey Winter is a great time to go ice skating or play some
hockey. However, ice sports like skating and hockey can be especially dangerous, and it's wise for adults and children to be as cautious as possible when getting in some ice time. * Beware of thin ice. Ice that forms on moving waters, including rivers and creeks, is never safe enough to skate on. Such waters should always be avoided no matter how thick the ice may appear. When going ice skating or playing hockey outdoors, only do so on waters that are supervised and have been tested and approved for skating. * Skate with the crowd and never skate alone. Skating alone might give you all the room in the world to perform a figure eight, but skating alone leaves you with no backup should the ice break and you fall in or if you injure yourself in a fall. When skating, never skate against the crowd.
Skiing and snowboarding
Sledders, be they children or adults, should always sled feet-first or sitting up.
Skiing and snowboarding are immensely popular in the winter, but that popularity should not overshadow how dangerous these activities can be. * Get instruction. Ski resorts typically require guests with no previous skiing or snowboarding experience to get lessons before they can take to the slopes. These lessons are a must for novice skiers and snowboarders and even those athletes with no recent experience on the slopes. * Be especially cautious when entering or exiting the ski lift. Ski lifts pose a significant injury risk, so skiers and snowboarders should always be attentive when entering or exiting the lift. * Don't allow young children to snowboard. Many of today's youngsters prefer snowboarding to skiing. However, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children seven years of age and younger should not snowboard. * Don't be in a hurry. Skiing or snowboarding too fast increases the chance you will lose control and cause injury to yourself or others. Go at a slower, more relaxed pace and take in all of the beautiful scenery along the way.
Sledding Sledding is a great way to have some fun in the winter snow. But even though sledding is often seen as a carefree activity, it can be risky as well. * Never sled near traffic. Sledding near traffic is a definite no-no, as it risks the lives of sledders and motorists alike. Always make sure you sled in an insulated area far away from roadways. * Sled feet-first or sitting up. Sledding feet-first or sitting up greatly reduces a sledder's risk of suffering a head or neck injury. Never sled while lying down head first. * Never sled on ice. Sledding on ice can cause injuries and make it difficult to control a sled. When sledding, only do so on packed snow. * Do not allow a sled to be pulled by a vehicle. Being pulled by a vehicle while on a sled might seem like fun, but it's nearly impossible for oncoming traffic to see a sledder behind a vehicle, and it's very easy for the sled to fishtail into oncoming traffic.

NORTH CREEK — The Gore Mountain Region Chamber of Commerce recently hired former state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Forest Ranger Steve Ovitt to show local business owners how to match tourists to appropriate winter outdoor recreation activities. Ovitt gave two presentations earlier this winter at the Tannery Pond Community Center which were free and open to the public. Retired from the DEC for almost two years, he now owns/operates Wilderness Property Management, based in Wevertown. He compiled a list of more than two dozen local backcountry skiing, snowshoeing and mountaineering destinations to send visitors looking for a real deal Adirondack experience in the woods. Ovitt explained in a phone interview that he started his presentation with a definition of abilities. “Once we have that, then we go into a discussion of all these trails in the southeastern Adirondacks and the Hudson River drainage,” Ovitt said. “And from there, I go into a section that matches the outdoor enthusiast with the experience.” Ovitt is happiest in the woods. His enthusiasm is infectious, and he loves to share his skills and knowledge of backcountry destinations in the southeastern Adirondacks. He’s an adjunct professor at SUNY Adirondack, teaching backcountry skills and skiing. He is also on the Advisory Board for the Adventure Sports Program at SUNY Adirondack and is a founding director of Adirondack Treks, a youth venturing organization. “For trip planning, you have to assess the
group members if you’re going to go somewhere and do something,” Ovitt said. “You’ve got to look at attitude, knowledge, fitness, equipment and the group as a whole.” His advice for local business owners is simple. “Pretty much anybody can do this in a very short conversation by looking at the individual and asking a few questions,” Ovitt said. “If you were working at a local business at the front desk and they said they wanted to go hike somewhere, or snowshoe or ski, and they were asking where to go. If you talk to them for a couple of minutes, you could assess this and evaluate the individual and then match the person and the group’s ability with a comparably rated trail so the people have a great experience.” The goal is to get people to enjoy themselves in the woods so they travel back to the North Creek region for more. “If somebody’s going out snowshoeing for the first time, and they have to rent snowshoes and they really don’t know how, and somebody sends them to Crane Mountain, well they’re probably never going to go snowshoeing again and they’re going to hate it,” Ovitt said. “But if you send them up the Ski Bowl Connector or the first mile of the Schafer Trail or Old Farm Road, they’re going to love it and they’re going to want to come back and do it again.” Documents from Ovitt’s presentation can be found online at www.wildernesspropertymanagement.com. Or call him at (518) 251-4330.

Adirondack Cabin Fever 2013 - 15
Quell cabin fever to avoid wintertime doldrums S
ome people love winter while others can't wait for the warm air of spring to make its triumphant return. For the latter, cabin fever can become a problem as winter progresses. Cabin fever is the feeling people get when they are relegated to spending long periods of time indoors. Because winter weather can be harsh, cabin fever most often occurs in the winter, when the weather outside discourages people from spending time outdoors or opening their windows to let fresh air in. Though there's nothing men and women can do about the weather, they can take steps to quell cabin fever and avoid the wintertime blues.
Around the House There are plenty of ways to make a cabin less conducive to cabin fever. * Let the sunshine in. Cold air outside makes it foolish and potentially unhealthy to open the windows. But homeowners can still let the sunshine outside those windows in. Pull the curtains back and open the blinds to let as much light as possible into a home throughout the winter months. * Work by the window. More and more people now telecommute to work, which can make them more susceptible to cabin fever during the winter months. Choose an airy room with lots of windows to house your home office. You'll want your desk to face the windows during the workday so you can benefit from the midday sun. * Improve your home's aroma. While the validity of aromatherapy remains open for debate, improving a home's aroma during the winter months can remove the musty smell that forms when a home has been poorly ventilated for weeks or even months. Supporters of aromatherapy suggest that some essential oils, including lavender and peppermint, improve one's mood.
Embrace Activity Many people feel winter is a time to hibernate, which can make them more susceptible to cabin fever. But even when the weather outside isn't conducive to a backyard pool party, men and women can still stay active to fend off cabin fever. * Exercise regularly. Regular exercise has both physical and mental benefits, the latter of which can be especially valuable to those hoping to quell cabin fever. Exercise releases certain neurotransmitters in the brain that alleviate pain and improve mood. Regular exercise during the winter months can reduce the risk of developing cabin fever while making the months more enjoyable as well. * Get outdoors. Men and women don't have to spend hours in a gym each day to stay active during the winter months. It's still possible to spend ample time outdoors when the weather is cold. Walk or run when the conditions allow or embrace an activity such as skiing or snowboarding to get off the couch and spend some quality time outside. * Shovel the driveway. If your body allows, shovel your own driveway when it snows. When done correctly, shoveling is great exercise, and you may even cherish the time you get to spend outdoors. If cabin fever is proving especially problematic, you might be suffering from a condition known as seasonal affective disorder, or SAD. SAD is a mood disorder that occurs at the same time every year, most often in the winter, and may be a result of reduced serotonin production related to decreased exposure to sunlight. Also known as seasonal depression, SAD can mimic depression, and men and women who suspect they might be suffering from SAD should consult a physician. Right: Embracing outdoor activities like skiing is one way to quell cabin fever this winter.
Keep the nip of frostbite away this winter season F
rostbite is relatively common and can occur to anyone who is exposed to extreme cold. Awareness of frostbite and how to prevent it can help people who hope to spend ample time outdoors this winter avoid this potentially painful condition.
What is frostbite? Frostbite is the freezing of body tissue, most notably the skin. Certain areas of the body are more susceptible to frostbite, including the nose, ears, toes, and fingers. Those who have circulation issues or diabetes may be more vulnerable to frostbite and will have to be extra diligent in covering up when venturing outdoors. Many cases of frostbite occur in persons who work outdoors in the cold, including soldiers stationed in cold climates. The homeless and winter outdoor enthusiasts are also susceptible, as is anyone who spends time outdoors when the temperatures are very cold.
Symptoms of frostbite Frostbite is a serious injury to the body that is caused by freezing tissues. It can create a loss of feeling in the affected areas and even the loss of fingers, toes and limbs. Cases of frostbite vary in severity. They can range from mild frostnip, which is just a temporary cessation of feeling in extremities, to superficial frostbite, where only the outer skin is affected, to deep frostbite, the most severe type of frostbite wherein the underlying tissues also freeze, possibly resulting in permanent damage or even amputation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, frostbite can initiate with redness or pain in any area of the skin. As it progresses, the skin may take on a grayish-yellow hue. Numbness may set in, and the skin could feel very firm or even waxy. Progressed frostbite will appear black, and blistering may be present. A person experiencing frostbite is typically unaware that the condition

Committed to the past... looking toward the future...
is occurring because of the numbness. It often takes the trained eye of another person to point out frostbite.
Treating frostbite Depending on how long the skin has been exposed to extreme weather, frostbite treatment can vary. At the onset, individuals experiencing the primary symptoms of frostbite, including redness, tingling or numbing, can benefit from moving into a warm room. Removal of wet and cold clothing is also adviseable. The affected tissues should be warmed gently with warm water. The water should be comfortable to the touch in areas not affected by the frostbite. Do not use hot water! If warm, water is unavailable, use body heat to warm the body. This can be done by tucking cold hands under armpits or sitting on them with dry legs. It is unadvisable to use a dry heating source, like heating pads or a campfire, to thaw frostbitten skin. Also, avoid massaging or disturbing the tissue on frostbitten skin, which can cause further damage. Prompt medical attention should be sought to determine the severity of the frostbite. A combination of warm therapy and hydration could help salvage damaged tissues.
Preventing frostbite The easiest way to ward off symptoms of frostbite is to be diligent in preventing it from beginning. This includes wearing several layers of clothing. The innermost layer of clothing should be something that wicks moisture away from the body. Mittens provide more protection than gloves, and wool socks can add an extra layer of warmth to feet and toes. Ears and the face can be covered by scarves or special hat-and-mask combinations. Increasing physical activity will help keep warm blood pumping through tissue and help a person to stay warm. Avoid smoking tobacco because it can constrict blood vessels and increase one's risk for frostbite. On the same
Bundling up against the cold is essential to preventing frostbite, especially for children, the elderly and those with circulation issues.

token, do not drink alcohol because it may create the sensation of warmth and may lead a person to think he or she is warm, even if frostbite is occurring. Keeping a few chemical hand warmers available as well as keeping an extra blanket tucked in a car trunk can help one avoid a cold-weather emergency and reduce the risk for frostbite.

Keep busy with fun snow day activities F
Origins of the Winter Olympics
very four years, athletes and sporting enthusiasts gather to participate in the Winter Olympics, overseen by the International Olympic Committee. Although in recent years the winter games stagger with the Summer Olympics every two years, these two events were once combined into one Olympic games. Beforehand, the winter games ceased to exist. The first time winter sports were included in the Olympic games was in 1924 in Chamonix, France. Prior to that, individuals had presented the idea for winter games to be included, but the IOC wasn't sure the inclusion would protect the integrity of the games in general. Also, there were concerns over a lack of facilities for winter sports. Eventually, the IOC decided that the host nation of the 1924 Summer Olympics would host a separate "International Winter Sports Week." The competition proved to be a success, with 50 athletes from 16 nations competed in 16 events. The following year, in 1925, the IOC decided that winter events should be made in their own separate Olympic Winter Games. The last winter games to be held took place in 2010 in Vancouver. The next winter games will occur in Sochi, Russia -making this the first time a Russian city will host the Winter Olympics. To date there are seven categories of Winter Olympic sports. These include biathlon, skating, luge, skiing, ice hockey, curling, and bobsleigh. There are several subsets within sleighing and skiing. According to the IOC, for a sport to make it onto the Olympic roster, it must be administered by an International Federation, which ensures that
the sport's activities follow the Olympic Charter. If it is widely practiced around the world and meets a number of criteria established by the IOC session, a recognized sport may be added to the Olympic programme on the recommendation of the IOC's Olympic Programme Commission. A sport's popularity may or may not play a role in its inclusion on the Olympic program. Although the Olympics have been watched and celebrated for decades, the inclusion of winter games is a relatively recent phenomenon.

ew things are as eagerly anticipated by children as birthdays, holiday presents and, of course, snow days. When the meteorologist predicts several inches of snow, most kids go to sleep to visions of sledding, snowball fights and building snow forts. Should the school district close for the day, cheers can be heard throughout the neighborhood. Although children may revel in the idea of days off from school due to snow, parents may not be as enthusiastic. Entertaining children when they typically should be in class can take creativity, especially when the weather is inhospitable. To alleviate bouts of cabin fever or prevent cases of hypothermia, there are many fun things parents can consider. And don't tell the children, but some are educational, too. * Put out bird seed or a suet block and feed the neighborhood birds. Compare the different species that come to grab an easy meal. Artistic kids can sketch what they see by looking out the window. * Shovel a shallow path in the snow around the yard to create a snow maze. Build snow blinds, behind which kids can hide. * Gather winter nature items, like pine cones and icicles. Look for frozen "fossils." * Brew a thermos full of hot chocolate and go sit out with the neighbors who are probably going a bit stir crazy as well. * Check in on elderly friends and neighbors and offer to shovel their driveways and walkways, if necessary. * Pretend you are on a North Pole expedition and hike through the neighborhood in a quest to reach the summit of a mountain or to find a hidden treasure. * Use spray bottles or squirt bottles filled with water and food coloring to draw masterpieces in the snow. * Gather a clean patch of snow and pour maple syrup onto it. Allow to harden and then enjoy homemade maple candies. * Explore and look for winter plants and other foliage that survive the chill. * Grab skates and head to an ice rink or solid (and safe) pond. * Decorate an outdoor tree with streamers and popcorn garland. * If it's too chilly for a picnic in the snow, place a blanket on the family room floor and enjoy an indoor picnic. * Rent a movie and cuddle on the couch under blankets. * Have a marathon video game battle. * Put on some tunes and dance around the house. * Play a classic game, such as Twister(R) or Monopoly(R). * Take out modeling clay or dough and create different play figures or ornaments. * Whip up a hearty meal together, giving kids free reign over the ingredients. * Play with toy trucks and cars in the snow. * Engage in a snowball fight. * Find the tallest hill in the area and test your bravery on the back of a sled. * Chase the dog around the backyard. Dogs often like to play in the snow, too. * Sit in sunny windows and read books silently or to the group. * Make sock puppets and put on a show. * Catch up on beauty sleep by taking a nice nap under a warm quilt. * Bake a batch of brownies or cookies. Snow days don't have to be restless mornings and afternoons spent locked indoors. There are many different and fun ways to pass the hours.
