Rental equipment, lessons, and well groomed, extensive x-ctry ski trails are available on this mountain resort which is just north of Gore Mtn downhill ski center. We stayed at the lodge years ago in the summer - as a family - and enjoyed it here but just tried the ski trails for the first time and am looking forward to a repeat visit. This is the 2nd visit this year to a Nordic center, and in comparison to the Vt locale, the trails at Garnet Hill are more challenging. There is the easy Old Faithful trail which we stuck to initially but there's plenty of more difficult and expert trails available to make all skiing levels happy. The ski shop has gloves and equipment to purchase; the cafe which is under the same roof had self-serve chili, soup, and sandwiches, chips, etc. and a wood stove for winter warmth. This is a piece of the Adirondacks which is well worth the visit. Events are available and noted on their website.
