We came up to the Adirondacks because there has been almost no snow in southern New York, with the exception of the Catskills. The trails here are great, but $25 to cross-country ski is a little ridiculous! Perhaps this place caters to the people on Long Island who have no problem paying $35,000 for a wedding :) We will stick to blazing our own cross-country ski trails in the future, or pay $10 for the trails that are actually better, if there is enough snow, in Fahnstock State Park, Putnam County, NY.

Just back from four days of great skiing during problematic Feb. 2020. Trails were well-constructed, immaculately groomed, and solidly maintained. First two days were a low-ebb situation, but skiing conditions were still very impressive considering. Perfect skating lanes, very usable classic tracks. Third day was snow to ice to rain, but trail conditions stayed solid. Fourth day was ice rain back to snow and skiing conditions, while different, were still very good. I'm incredibly impressed by the dedication to maintenance and grooming. A good skier can cover most or all of the terrain in a day, but the layout and character mean that repetition is fine. Changing conditions meant we were always entertained.

Seven of us stayed in the Farmhouse (Lapin) and it was fine. Tupas are pretty down-home (think 70's ski house, not log-and-glass lodge) but comfortable. Wood stove, rockers, couches. We skied, shared meals, laughed, and had a great time. Wifi, while not guaranteed at the tupas, nonetheless reached ours.

The office/lodge/shop is well-equipped, has LOTS of rental gear, and a reasonable collection of boots and skis for sale. Staff is friendly, interested, and invested in the place. We got firewood and kindling delivered and snow removal in the morning. I highly recommend.

I, a beginner-intermediate skier
and my friend an expert skier had a beautiful refreshing stay at the new studio-Owl’s Nest. The studio is a -well-appointed place to stay. It has a new propane stove and nice view of the pond. Well-groomed trails for skiing and snowshoeing and great lake views. Kathy and Dave are super attentive and kind to all needs. If you want a memorable winter ( or summer/fall) in a Finnish style respite-its here...quiet, pine sweetness and awesome sauna every night!

It doesn't get any better than this! A great getaway, and especially nice to get in some late season skiing on beautifully maintained trails and peaceful woods. Excellent food service for lunch and we stayed in a delightful cabin just a few steps from the trail. Even got in a night ski on lighted trails to the lakefront sparkling with stars.
