Ski Center Status

The ski center is closed. Thank you to all for a great and memorable season. We look forward to your return next year!

9:30 am, Wednesday 16 March '22: Most of the snow has melted and skiing is not a good option. Two black bears have been spotted in Cedar Swamp all winter. (High Point temperatures are usually 10 F colder than New York City, and 5 F colder than the local towns.)

We cannot take reservations in the State park. All our services are "first come first serve" in the ski lodge. The parking lot closest to the lodge is for 80 cars, and parking for handicapped skiers ONLY is next to the lodge. Overflow is in the old lot for an additional 160 cars. The best idea is to ski during the week or on Wednesday nights to avoid weekend crowds. Stay tuned for updates.

The operation is now based out of the new ski lodge, (Interpretive/Nature Center). Park and walk up the driveway to get trail passes, rentals, and lessons. Public floor space is increased compared to the old ski lodge we used for the last 25 years and critical for a safer pandemic environment during check-in. The traffic flow inside the lodge is one way. Please read all signs and follow directions. We ask all our customers to limit their stay in the lodge on weekends and holidays, and keep social distancing. Bring backpacks to store your footwear when renting equipment to save a trip back to the car for storage and to enjoy snacks while on the trails.

Season passes are good for the following year if our season falls short of 30 days of operation (46 days last winter and 31 days so far this season). We have been open for night skiing on Wednesdays again. Bring your headlamp or rent one in the lodge. We have ski packages for sale, skis, bindings, boots, and poles, (all new) in the price range from $345 - $385. Email us with interest in purchases of ski equipment: It's a mix of Whitewoods, Salomon, Fischer, Madshus, and Swix equipment.

Thank you for making High Point Cross Country Ski Center your ski destination, and feel free to share any of your favorite photos by emailing <>. Best, Hans
