It is a 2,090-foot-tall (640 m) mountain located in Essex County, situated at the northern edge of the village of Saranac Lake. The mountain is owned privately and has a small housing development located on its southern side which includes a few dwellings scattered throughout.

There are fifteen skiable alpine acres, with plenty of green and blue trails for beginner skiers. The mountain offers a slightly more challenging vertical rise of 329 feet – perfect if you’re looking to build your skills.

To get up the mountain, skiers can take advantage of a T-bar lift which offers options for both short and long runs.
