Nice place to ski

The skiing is great - some easy and some difficult trails. Great snow and a good set of employees. A fun place.

Visited again this year! Beautiful sights and great staff. Did the 20 minute hike at the peak and relaxed in the chairs while the kids picked wild raspberries. Worth it every year!

Rode the chairlift up the mountain. Enjoyed the scenery. Overlooks some of the Fulton Chain of Lakes. Can see as far as Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid. Chose to walk down the mountain (about .8 mi.) to the parking lot.

Cost $22 for two adults and 2 children. Gets up to the top in about 10 minutes and you can get out and enjoy the very scenic views of Old Forge and the Fulton Chain of Lakes. You can take the chair back down or you can walk down. We decided to walk, not that bad, less than 1 mile.... More

The chairlift ride is only $6 per person. It's a simple 10 minute ride to the top of the mountain where you will be treated to views of the Fulton Lakes and the high peaks. There are picnic tables and Adirondack Chairs for you to savor the view. You have the option to ride the chair lift or hike down... More

Love to take the lift up to the top of McCauley, soak in the views and take it all in. We try to do the lift each year when we visit In the summer. Hard to believe enough snow falls in the winter to cover the terrain, but in Old Forge, it snows. Summertime views are awesome. Fulton chain of... More

adults $6 to ride the ski lift to the top of the mountain in the off season. You can picnic at the top and stay as long as you like before taking the ride back down the mountain or hiking it. Good experiance

My wife and I are both limited on walking, but the chair lift made our visit truly special. We were able to bring our small dog, and had a bag lunch seated in Adirondack chairs at the top, just amazing.
