A Few of New York’s Great Destinations for Cross-Country Skiing

Andrew Barovick has provided legal representation as a partner at Alegria & Barovick LLP in New York City for more than four years. Outside of work, Andrew Barovick pursues a multitude of hobbies, including cross-country skiing. 

New York has several excellent cross-country skiing destinations, including Mohonk Mountain House, which is less than two hours from Manhattan. Here, individuals will find 30 miles of groomed trails for cross-country skiing. 

Those who do not mind traveling farther can check out Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center in the Adirondacks. Because it is four hours from New York City, families are encouraged to stay in little Scandinavian cottages, which come with free use of the trails. 

One of the most affordable destinations is Beaver Lake Nature Center, which charges only $3 per car for admission. The center boasts seven miles of cross-country ski trails and three miles of snowshoeing trails.

A free option is Great Bear Recreation Area, which has eight miles of single-track trails through the woods.
