Sunday’s rain turned to snow overnight and it snowed all day here on Monday. Snowed some more for us on Tuesday, leaving a total of 10-12 inches of fresh snow on top of some ice.
Groomers have been out on the snowmobile trails and the cross-county trails leaving them in fair condition.
The sledding hill has plenty of snow and the ice skating rink is finally open!

Inlet has developed a master plan for Arrowhead Park, and with the help of New York State’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) we are making many improvements to the park. These improvements include new pathways from the parking lot leading towards the boardwalk and beach.
You can be a part of the improvements to Arrowhead Park by purchasing an engraved brick paver to be installed in the park’s pathways.
Frozen Fire & Lights Thank You
The Town of Inlet and the Inlet Area Business Association would like to say Thank You to all those who made the 12th Annual Frozen Fire & Lights a great success!
The beautiful winter day began with the coronation of King “French Louie” Paul Chambers & his Queen Reggie in front of a snowy Adirondack “throne” near Inlet Town Hall. Supervisor John Frey and his wife Sarah performed the honors and Mr. Frey proclaimed the weekend “French Louie Weekend.” The king & queen went through the day handing out beads to spectators and trophies and medals to all the winners of the day’s races.
Roy Reehil’s “Remembering French Louie” presentation at the Inlet Town Hall was very well attended. After the presentation, people followed Roy over to the Inlet Public Library where a book sale was taking place. Signed books of Roy’s were also available for purchase.
At Fern Park, the sledding hill was a very popular spot. The groomed ski trails and enclosed ice skating rink were also enjoyed by many, while a nice fire was burning to keep everyone warm.
The Inlet Youth Commission had a very nice turnout for their Noah’s Ark Animal Workshop held at the Inlet Town Hall where children could also get their face painted.
The 5th Annual Cardboard Sled Race was another success! We had 21 entries, handed out 10 trophies and every participant received a medal. Speed was broken down into three categories by age. Thank you to Dennis Hudson for his master of ceremonies performance and for manning the starting line at the top of the Fern Park sledding hill. Thank you to the following for their assistance with judging, timing, inspecting, registration and making sure the sleds stayed upright: Adele Burnett, Margie & Bruce O’Hara, Deb Evans, and John & Sarah Frey. We are looking forward to next year’s entries!
The Inaugural Kid’s Snowmobile Races was a great addition to the day’s activities and we are looking forward to doing this again next year. Thank you to Spot & Dede SteMarie, Ernie DuRyter and Erica & Woody Pitkat for helping during the races and the Inlet Parks Department for setting and grooming the track. Also thank you to RNE Precision for their contribution towards the trophies.
Happy Hour at The Woods Inn from 4:00-6:00 gave people a place to warm up after the races.
Around 5:30 people started gathering around the huge bonfire at Arrowhead Park, where free hot cider and Zweigle’s hot dogs were served and raffle tickets for an Ellie Sound 120 XE Kayak were sold to benefit the Inlet Historical Society. This kayak will be raffled off on September 20, 2015. Promptly at 7:00 PM began the awesome display of fireworks by American Fireworks out of Utica. After the fireworks, many wandered over to Matt’s Draft House @ Screamen Eagle for Wine & Chocolate Sampling.
