Brookhaven Expands Winter Recreation

PORTER CORNERS — The Town of Greenfield has made big improvements to its Brookhaven Winter Park, a free ski and snowshoe park located at 333 Alpine Meadows Rd. in Porter Corners. The park will feature 20 kilometers of groomed cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails as well as a full-service restaurant for after-ski refreshments.

The town added all new-trail markings, a map that can be easily accessed through a QR code from a mobile phone, and many new wooded and open terrain trails of varying lengths and difficulty. The trails will be groomed three times a week by a team of resident volunteers led by Steve Schrieber of Greenfield. Daily updates on trail conditions will be provided on Facebook @Brookhaven Winter Park.

The View at Brookhaven is a full-service restaurant and bar specializing in home-cooked meals. The restaurant will be open Wednesday through Sunday from noon until 8 p.m. and will offer “from scratch” menu items such as soups, burgers and a selection of meats smoked on-site. The restaurant is owned by Rich and Jody Sheldon, operators of the successful Saratoga Strike Zone, and Joe and Lindsay Stanislowsky of South Glens Falls.

“We are delighted that the word is getting out about the many special places in Greenfield,” said Recreation Director Rebecca Sewell. “Brookhaven Winter Park offers nearby Adirondack terrain for no cost.”

This winter the Town of Greenfield will hold a number of events at Brookhaven including a learn-to-ski program, a snowshoe race Feb. 5 and a cross-country ski race Feb. 12. To sign up for the races visit runreg.com and skireg.com.
