Downhill Skiing at Mt. Pisgah Recreation Center

Pisgah, as it’s known in Saranac Lake, is a classic “small town” Adirondack skiing spot.

Downhill skiing

The gentle slopes, dedicated staff, and welcoming atmosphere make it especially inviting for family skiing and tubing.

Many green and blue trails for beginners out of the 15 skiable alpine acres. Vertical rise of 329 feet. The lift is a T-bar which allows skiers to choose the length of their run. Bonus: Lights for night skiing!

This comes with all the thrills including taking you back up to the top with a rope tow. Two runs for inner tube “races” but we aren’t telling you which one is faster.
