Adirondack Activities: Events for March 11-13, 2011

It is supposed to be 40 degrees this weekend. The perfect weather for making maple syrup. So enjoy the spring-like ski conditions and take a snowshoe or ski around the Adirondacks. Enjoy the sweet stuff.  So fill up on pancakes and then go snowshoeing. Enjoy spring conditions (and some discounts) at the ski resorts. Enjoy story times and live music. Those are just a few ideas for activities happening around the Adirondacks this weekend.
