Promoting Self- Powered Recreation
Responsible, sustainable recreation for the Adirondacks!
This Is Our Story
APSA a not-for-profit corporation formed to study, protect, promote, and enhance low impact human powered snow sports on public lands in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. The APSA has been meeting with the APA and DEC as well as governmental and environmental Leaders to develop standards for ski touring trails within naturally occurring openings under a mature canopy on pitches that would require a minimal amount of maintenance to create safe and reasonable access.
The APSA strongly believes that by utilizing carefully planned out criteria for site selection and route designs which integrate the natural terrain features and contours while avoiding areas of specific environmental concern the ultimate goal of Resource Protection can be achieved in both Wilderness and Wild Forest Areas of the Forest Preserve. low impact ski touring trails selectively located throughout the Adirondack Park would help to sustain our local communities through Eco-Tourism opportunities while providing a healthy wilderness activity for all to enjoy.
