Ski Center Status:

8:03 am, Fri, 24 Jan. '20:  We decided to close for skiing since the sunexposed trail sections and hills do not have sufficient snow cover.  3-4" of new snow fell during the last storm Saturday.  More snow is needed to make it the best it can be.  The forecast for the weekend is now looking like mostly rain with the majority falling Saturday.  This is the time to travel north.  Skiing is still good at Craftsberry, VT, Great Glenn, NH, Reikert, VT, and it looks like Osceola, NY may get more lake effect snow out of this front.  Quebec ski areas have great skiing, but the drive is longer, and you need to bring your passport.  Thank you for making High Point Cross Country Ski Center your ski destination.  The Waxing Wizzard from Swix can assist you with choosing the best wax:  http://www.swixsport.com/Wax-Resources/Wax-Wizard, or we will give you tips.

High Point Cross Country Ski Center has been featured on NJ Mom's list of 25 "Totally Unique Valentine’s Day Ideas in New Jersey" this year! Their website is njmom.com.

New this season is an upgraded snow making system that first will cover 2 km of trail and later be extended if Mother Nature does not cooperate, miscellaneous grooming machinery for classic and skate skiing, ski rentals for all ages, and snowshoes for the 8 km Monument (snowshoe) Trail.  

On 17 February we will start to offer our rental gear for sale at a range of $150-350 (ski equipment) and $50-150 (snowshoes) depending on models of the boots, skis, poles, and snowshoes.  (Ask for Hans) 

We put down a lot more wood chips again this summer and fall to be able to operate with minimal amounts of snow.  (Save this web page in your favorites to see morning and night trail report updates depending on what "Mother Nature" sends our way.) Click to see video from last season when all of our trails had super conditions.
