Mt. Van Hoevenberg Cross Country Ski Center is set to open for the 2018/19 Season on Saturday, November 17. Thanks in part to recent efforts by Mother Nature, and to the truly genius benefits of the TechnoAlpin Snowfactory, the ski center’s earliest-ever planned opening comes after members of the US Para-Nordic ski team held their week-long training camp at Van Ho.

The Olympic Cross Country ski trails of Mt. Van Hoevenberg have delighted individuals, couples and families for over 35 years. Constant trail upgrades and world class grooming on 50 km of rolling Adirondack terrain have been the hallmark of our Olympic legacy. Skiers have always found trails fit for the Olympian inside them, no matter their ability. Step into a pair of skis or snowshoes, breathe in the fresh, crisp air and follow our meticulously groomed trails through the snowy woods. Through the forest, follow the trails that have led athletes, like local Bill Demong (Gold and Silver Medalist in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games) to Olympic glory.
