is a variety of slopes and trails enabling the beginner skier to feel
confident, and bring some excitement to the novice and intermediate skiers.

and Drew rate Alpine "snowboard friendly" snowboarding is usually
available on all trails. Snowmobiling (when natural snow is available)
is a nice touch.
snowmaking system covers 100 percent of the mountain with more than 4,000
tons of snow 6 to 18 inches deep on most of the trails in a day.
Mountain has some of the best rates, and programs for beginners and is
convenient to NY and NJ skiers. There's also a fine tubing run for those
who don't ski or board, when the snow's right.
Mountain on Route 447 between Analomink and Canadensis, nine miles from
