WE HAVE THE SKI EXPERIENCE
Saranac Lake has its own village ski center, Mt Pisgah Ski Area. We have mountains in our town, and plenty of “small town” in our mountains! Pisgah has something to offer a broad range of winter snow seekers. There’s recreational downhill skiing and snowboarding with snowmaking to keep the slopes in tune all winter. Join us day and night, that's right, Pisgah has night skiing, too. There’s a high caliber terrain park and gate training for alpine racers.
Looking for activities for beginners or small children, or just looking for an easy day? We have what you want! Snowshoe trails, cross-country skiing from beginner to intermediate trails, 30 acres of gorgeous glade skiing, and lessons for beginners are all at your fingertips. Not to mention - Pisgah has snow tubing under the lights.
For a full-day ski resort with all of the amenities, head to Whiteface a few minutes outside the Village of Lake Placid. The Olympic Mountain, Whiteface features the greatest vertical drop in the East - all 3,166 feet of it! Part of the 46 High Peaks, Whiteface Mountain hosts various lodges, dining and Apres ski, beginner to expert terrain, including glade skiing, the slides and a full snow sports school and park for the littlest skiers. Whiteface also offers two terrain parks and an airbag set up for extra thrills. Check out our ski and stay packages and book your stay in Saranac Lake!
