Cross Country Skiing

With hundreds of miles of groomed and ungroomed trails, Warren county offers innumerable opportunities to enjoy the Adirondack region in the winter.   Come up to the magic world of winter! Discover snowy forest trails and the winter scenery of the New York Adirondack Mountains. Early season storms quickly transform the Adirondack wilderness into a beautiful world of white mountain vistas and snowy woodland scenes.

Groomed trail systems can be found at Gore Mountain, Garnet Hill Outdoor Center and at the North Creek Ski bowl.  All together, the groomed trails represent over 60 KM of expertly groomed, fast track skiing.
