With more than 3,000 acres of rolling terrain, Notchview offers an idyllic escape for winter sport enthusiasts, especially cross-country skiers looking for a brisk outing. Seventeen kilometers of trails are groomed and track-set for classical cross-country skiing; eight kilometers are groomed for skate skiing. A separate trail system is groomed for "skijoring," or skiing with dogs. You can also go off track and explore the backcountry, or snowshoe alongside the ski trails.
Warm up in the Budd Visitor Center, featuring a masonry heater with toasty soapstone seats, a waxing area, a rental shop with both skis and snowshoes, and a stunning view of our woods and fields. Take an energy break with soup, sandwiches, baked goods, and beverages from our cafe. Along the trail, two Adirondack shelters offer skiers a chance to sit and admire the landscape.
