    You can check out the NYS website. Might help.

    As you know N.Y and Vt. got hit HARD.

    Hopefully roads will be at least passable by then.

    Take a look at a link that a friend sent me

    Most of the roads are now open. Windham and Prattsville should open soon. Rt 42 might be closed longer. Rt 23a has one lane for about 600'. Expect to see some dirt sections in places.

    The foliage should be out around Oct 10th +- a week. By then everything should be back to normal.

    Very few people up here at the moment. Most people are staying away.

    Cic 4

    30 SEP - 2 OCT, 2011

    The rivers have subsided, the major roads have been reopened for the most
    part, Hunter Mountain has been up and running successfully with a couple of
    other festivals since Hurricane Irene, we are ready to go with CIC 4. The
    only thing I am not sure about is will YOU be joining us again this year?

    We have plenty of space and would love to see you there. With the
    cancellation of the Killington Classic as a result of the storm damages, we
    are expecting a larger crowd that usual to come out for a big "fall finale
    weekend" of riding, entertainment and camping. There will also be a number
    of vendors attending the event for you to pick up those items you have been
    meaning to buy all season. MAX BMW will also be back with their off road
    schools and the BMW Demo Truck on Saturday and Sunday. We are inviting all
    brands of motorcycles. Please bring your friends. Feel free to cross post
    this announcement to any other motorcycle groups you think might enjoy this

    Best of all, IT IS STILL A FREE EVENT !!

    If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to drop me an e
    mail or give my cell phone a call.

    I hope to see you there!

    good luck with the show, Michael.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Restrooms are indoors, large, well lit, tiled walls and floors and open 24 hours. They located in the Learning Center building adjacent to the camping area.

    There are no showers on site, it's a ski area. Bring "wet wipes" or find a friend who has booked a room.

    Camping can be reserved on line at or when you arrive on site. There is no shortage of camping space. The cost is $15 per night which is less than the nearest other open choice located about 15 minutes away, the NY State North/South campground, at about $22 per night with an online $9 reservation fee.

    Hope that helps.

    BTW, some people were planning on camping at another NY State campground in the area, Devil's Tombstone. That area is closed for the season after suffering some damage from the Hurricane Irene. FYI, Devil's Tombstone area does not have any shower facilities either.

    Colors in the Catskills 4 off road activity

    Hey Ian ( and you others who like to get dirty),

    Here is something that might entice you to come join us this weekend, in addition to the free off road schools offered by TEAM MAX with personnel from the BMW Performance Center in SC, we will also be offering a chance to go riding with local Catskill off road legend, Nick the Barber! Not necessarily for the faint of heart.

    Off Road Riding Opportunity at CIC 4 !

    Local legend "Nick the Barber" will be leading a group ride Friday evening at 5 pm, Saturday at 3 pm and Sunday at 12 noon for those wanting something a little more challenging than RT 23A !

    This ride will be for Dual Sporters with knobbies and advanced riding skills. All bikes should be street legal, (or at least with good paperwork). All rides will be starting from the barbershop a couple of blocks west of the main entrance to Hunter on RT 23A, 7933 Main Street, Hunter, NY! Have fun with Nick!!

    And this is also FREE!
    Ride fast safely

    Central NY


    Planning on coming from the central NY (S of Syracuse) area, eventually taking 23 to 23A to Hunter. The road closure info states sections of that route are local traffic only. Any other suggestions to get there? Since I will be traveling there and returning home the same day I didn't want to spend too much time looking for alternate routes so I thought I would ask here. If I can get there via 23A it would be a moot point. Thanks

    You can get thru. You'll see the devastation in Prattsville on the way. We had lots of rain yesterday with some tree coming down. Spent yesterday and last night putting wires back up restoring power. Be careful riding the back roads this weekend looking for debris on the roads. We are heading up the mountain in afew hours. Heres a link to the local paper's article.
