Mount Pisgah is one of three small mountains that surround Saranac Lake (the others being Baker Mountain and Dewey Mountain). 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. On the summit of the mountain lies a set of communication towers, while the village ski area is located on its northern side.
The gentle slopes, friendly staff and inviting atmosphere of the ski resort make it a perfect place for families to hit the slopes together and enjoy skiing and tubing. 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. And for those night owls, there’s even a night skiing option with lights illuminating the slopes. So whatever your skill level and preferred time of day, you’re sure to find something here to fit your skiing needs. Happy Skiing!
