Backcountry Skiing and Snowshoeing
There are many ungroomed places to ski and snowshoe across New York including many of New York’s State Park trail systems, local town park trails, and hundreds of miles of hiking and mountain bike trails. Chances are if you have a favorite Summer trail or old woods road that you hike or bike on it could be a great ski trip in Winter. A good place to start is at one of the NY Cross Country Ski Areas – they usually have trails nearby that they would recommend and lessons and rentals for backcountry skiing or snowshoeing. Visit our Ski Area Directory. For more trail information this is a great resource for maps (mostly downloadable to a phone), and trail information – Every Trial Website. If you want to get really into the high country and backcountry skiing and snowshoeing take in the Mountain Fest 2014 sponsored by The Mountaineer in Keene.
