Cross-country Skiing In New York State

From day trips on local trails to rugged wilderness, New York has something for every cross-country skier.


The cross-country ski centers and trails in the Hudson Valley, the Palisades, the Taconic Hills and the Catskills are all within easy reach of the New York Metropolitan area, both by car and by train. This region of varied landscapes offers a wide range of cross-country skiing opportunities, from wooded trails in the state parks of the Taconic and Palisades to the magnificent vistas on the Shawangunks and in the Catskills Mountains. The terrain of Long Island is perfect for cross-country skiing. A number of parks offer cross-country ski opportunities.

Adirondacks/North Country Region

The Adirondack Park, and the Tug Hill Plateau are two key cross-country areas in the North Country. The Adirondack Park contains breathtaking mountain scenery, two dozen cross-country ski centers and unlimited back-country trails. To the west of the park is the Tug Hill Plateau, of the east end of Lake Ontario, which boasts more snow than any other part of the country east of the Rocky Mountains, more than 20 feet in the average winter. The Capital Saratoga area is home to several private, state and environmental touring centers, and at the same time close to performing arts centers, museums and other cultural activities.

Central-Finger Lakes Region

There are cross-country ski centers for family enjoyment all across the broad heartland of the state. In state and country parks, and in the Finger Lakes National Forest near Watkins Glen with its 40 kilometers of trails, snow covered paths wind through scenery of spectacular rural beauty and border the gorges and falls of the Finger Lakes valleys.

Greater Niagara Region

The snow in the Greater Niagara Region often comes early off the lakes, covering the Allegheny plateau, including Allegany State Park, the largest four season park in the state system. Its 100 winter cabins are popular for weekend and week-long stays. The greater Niagara Region has deep woodlands, wide open spaces and many places or families to vacation.
