On 3/10/18, with lots of fresh powder, how disappointing to encounter sub par grooming on all trails used. On occasion there were vestiges of corduroy, and once even vestiges of tracks on a lone trail. Snow shoers are free to roam, damaging what ever slight packing exists, dangerous on the many narrow trails, which also lack any direction, so that skiers of all levels need to be very careful . The site is gorgeous, and the staff very nice, although the lodge is extremely uncomfortable, and rest rooms are outhouses with plumbing. On the day I was there, the trees were laden with snow. But branches and twigs everywhere, along with the poor grooming, and also heavy hanging branches diminished the experience. There is a central wide trail that bizarrely was packed on the sides, with mounds of snow in the middle- an atypical situation. I skied here about 10 years ago or so, and my recollection is that the grooming was pretty good, and grooming is key to a good classic experience.

We tried the XC trails on Sunday morning following a Friday storm. Most trails seemed not to have been groomed since Saturday and the trail conditions were mostly mediocre despite the new snow. That said, the woods were lovely and the trails numerous enough that it did not feel crowded. But for serious skiing, head further north. Also, the place is not set up for skate skiing.

Response from mtntrailsxc, MtnTrailsXC at Mountain Trails Cross Country Ski Center

We're happy you enjoyed the area. It's unfortunate to hear the conditions weren't exactly up to your expectations. We are mostly a classic nordic ski area but open a few skating lanes when conditions permit. This was an exceptionally large and intense storm, leaving over 2 feet of wet snow on Friday. Due to the storm there were major power outages for days all over upstate New York including our town. The town water main also broke due to the storm which made for a very interesting weekend to open. Most of the local business including the major ski areas in the region couldn't open at all on some days this weekend due to the storm. This included Hunter Mountain and Belleayre. We were happy to have been one of the few who opened! If you are in the area in the future, we hope to see you again. We are expecting a large storm Wednesday and this should set us up nice for the weekend on top of our deep base. Thank you for the feedback. We always do our best to make the best ski conditions for our skiers.

The place is vast and well groomed. we had our kids 4 and 6 take the ski lessons and they had a good time. We rented equipment from them and they were are all good. They had a nice homemade chilli and other snacks at the snack.The family that runs the place are some of the nicest people we ever met. We accidentally left our son's hat at the place and they shipped it to us in New Jersey and paid for it out of their pocket (thanks a lot guys). We sure will visit often.

This was our third time visiting as we have a weekend home about 35 minutes away. It is a beautiful hemlock forest with trails groomed for all level skiiers, but even the green trails can be tricky. It's a fun sport and they have equipment to rent, or bring your own. Lovely, helpful people. If the snow keeps coming, we'll keep going. You can also snow shoe through the woods which is also lots of fun! After all that exercise, stop into Tannersville for a bite to eat! I recommend Last Chance Tavern, but there are other choices too.
