Matt Canale has worked with wood for as long as he can remember. Like with most kids at a young age, he found joy in the simplest of things - swinging a hammer and pounding nails into a board. But while most adolescents leave that passion at a hammer and nail, Canale’s passion for woodworking grew. Graduating from his grandfather’s basement to helping his handyman father around their house, he ultimately found a career path in it.

The 2016/17 U.S. Air Force Snocross National returns to Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino in Salamanca, NY, February 3-4. For years, crowds have been treated to the sights, sounds and smells (race fuel!) of this exciting event, so let’s fill you in on the back story ...

As one may notice, the majority of focal points in this publication tend to revolve around the ski and snowboard culture, that is so passionately supported by Ellicottville and its surrounding communities. We’d be remiss however, not to spotlight some of the other exciting happenings occurring just outside the village, which draw visitors into our communities from near and far.  One of said activities, is the 2016/17 U.S.

It’s easy to see why Ellicottville is such a fun place to come and play. Two resorts, a town alive with food and drink, and plenty of people you can share the stoke with. If you’re a seasonal (or even regular) visitor to 14731, you understand that this place - not just Ellicottville, but the entire region - thrives on being outside. Just a short drive over Chapel Hill or down Route 417 lies an entire area you may not know existed. These Enchanted Mountains contain much more than machine groomed packed powder, and we’re encouraging you to get out of your comfort zone and explore.

Flash sales at big box stores. Christmas dinner planning. Last minute shopping. Too often, society attempts to reinforce this notion that Christmas revolves strictly around the giving and receiving of material possessions. We live in a consumer world, where drones deliver packages to you that you ordered from your cell phone. It’s easy to get lost in the noise. But this holiday season, the crew at SNOWED-IN implores you to think about the concept of giving a little differently. As a proud alumnus of St. Bonaventure University, I’m taking advantage of this platform to tell you about an incredible, admirable endeavor of the University - The Warming House.

It’s easy to get lost in the noise of the holiday season.

NEW YORK’S AMISH TRAIL

Arthur J. Roscoe first came to Allegany State Park in 1925 after graduating from Syracuse University. In 1930 he got a permanent job as a Park Forester. In 1956 he was promoted to Assistant Regional Director. He held that position until he retired in 1968. During his time at the Park, Mr. Roscoe was instrumental in the development of skiing activities at the State Park and as a result, in 1979, he was honored by the Park when it dedicated the cross country ski trail system in his honor.

Normally, I don’t inject myself into storylines, but with this particular article I feel compelled to make an exception.  My father, Nelson Hegeman, was an avid skier in his youth.  He instructed downhill skiing at Glenwood Acres and Kissing Bridge and later, after relocating to Cattaraugus County, spent many hours each winter x-country skiing at Allegany State Park where he was able to bask in the solitude and serenity of the park in all of its snow-covered glory.  I was about two and a half years old when I was first introduced to skiing; my first memory of being on s
