Cross Country Skiing
Garnet Hill Lodge is an ideal base location for Adirondack backcountry skiing. The region surrounding our ski touring center offers some of the best wilderness skiing and ski mountaineering trips in New York.
The adjacent Siamese Ponds Wilderness Area contains almost 40 miles of mapped and marked trails. These routes offer day ski trips and multiple day winter wilderness adventures. In addition trails can be connected to frozen ponds, streams, and other winter only routes to provide an almost infinite variety of backcountry ski options.
Snowshoeing has become quite popular in recent years, due to exciting equipment advances, new trails, and a renewed spirit to get out and discover the outdoors in winter. Snowshoeing is easy to learn and has been around for eons. At Garnet Hill, we have a staff that is experienced with snowshoe equipment, techniques and trail routes and can have you out on the trails having a great time in no time at all.
Our snowshoe trail system at Garnet Hill is extensive with 6 different routes intertwining with our Nordic ski trails providing 15 km of onsite trail snowshoeing. When combined with the wilderness trails in the area, snowshoers can easily enjoy a whole day or even a week of winter adventure.
Ski the mountain and stay with us. Our four-season Adirondack resort is close to all the action. Garnet Hill offers great Gore Mountain lodging packages, suited for the whole family. We also provide a complimentary bus service that allows you to ski down-hill for miles and then be returned to the Ski Shop only to be able to do it all over again if you wish.
