Cross Country Ski Trails
The Olympic Cross Country ski trails of Mt. Van Hoevenberg have delighted individuals, couples and families for over 35 years. Constant trail upgrades and world class grooming on 55 km of rolling Adirondack terrain have been the hallmark of our Olympic legacy. Skiers have always found trails fit for the Olympian inside them, no matter their ability. Step into a pair of skis or snowshoes, breathe in the fresh, crisp air and follow our meticulously groomed trails through the snowy woods. Through the forest, follow the trails that have led athletes, like local Bill Demong (Gold and Silver Medalist in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games) to Olympic glory.
