Enjoy the outdoors? Like having fun and meeting new people of all ages?  Then come to the annual SKI-DANCE weekend  February 17th – 20th, 2023 (Friday through Monday- 3 nights) held in the Laurel Highlands region of western Pennsylvania. Ski-Dance is a volunteer-led activity sponsored by Sierra Club Potomac Region Outings (SCPRO).  

A typical day begins with breakfast followed by playing outdoors on Laurel Mountain - cross country or downhill skiing, snowshoeing, or hiking. A bit farther away is Laurel Ridge State Park (cross country skiing).  Also nearby are Seven Springs and Hidden Valley for tubing and downhill skiing. Free cross country skiing instruction will be provided!  (Click here for a map showing the various ski areas.)

There are also a variety of cultural and historical places to explore in this area (such as the Flight 93 Memorial, the Johnstown Flood Museum, and Fort Ligonier.)

During the afternoons folks play board games, read, knit, play music or simply hangout Then after dinner we gather by a roaring fire for a rousing sing along led by a master musician, Dave Wiesler, as we belt out the classics from the MTA song (poor Charlie) to Puff the Magic Dragon!

As if we haven’t had enough fun already, next we enjoy an evening of folk dances, to fabulous live music by Alexander Mitchell, Dave Wiesler, and Mat Clark, led by our high energy caller, Janine Smith. Do you have two left feet or have never done this - no worries! Janine will have you up and dancing in a jiffy with a variety of fun, accessible contras, squares, and English Country dances. All together, it’s a weekend full of opportunities for singles, friends and families of all ages to have fun, learn new activities, reconnect with old friends and make new ones.

Join us on our Facebook page for photos and to see how much fun we have!

We stay at Sequanota Camp and Conference Center in the Laurel Highlands region of western Pennsylvania (about 62 miles east of Pittsburgh).

The camp has made several modifications to enhance the safety including enhanced air purification and disinfection of common areas

There will be three types of accommodations: motel-type rooms at the Bowser Enrichment Center, traditional cabins, and, this year, a limited number of “enhanced” single cabin rooms with shared bathroom facilities (4 rooms sharing a bathroom).  

We will not be matching roommates to share rooms. If you would like to share a room, you and your roommate must agree in advance to do so and let us know on the application form. In addition, a limited number of single rooms are available in the new cabins

For the comfort and safety of all, everyone eligible to be vaccinated against Covid 19 (anyone 5 or older) will be required to be fully vaccinated (including a booster) in order to attend. We require all attendees to wear masks when indoors except when eating.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season and looking forward to seeing you all in 2023.
