Ski Center Status

The ski center is currently closed, but will open pre season for the 1st. annual Ski Swap on 19 November. Thank you to all for a great and memorable last season. We look forward to your return this upcoming winter!


Last season end report: 9:30 am, Wednesday 16 March '22: Most of the snow has melted and skiing has come to an end. (High Point temperatures are usually 10 F colder than New York City, and 5 F colder than the local towns.) We are finalizing installation of snowmaking for the 2022/2023 season and plan to start at the first weather window with cold temperatures around Thanksgiving.

We cannot take reservations for our services 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 if you dislike weekend crowds. Stay tuned for updates.

The operation is based out of the new ski lodge, (Interpretive/Nature Center). Park and walk up the driveway to the lodge for trail passes, rentals, and lessons. Operational floor space is quadrupled compared to the old ski lodge we used for the first 25 years since 1995. Please read all signs and follow directions. Bring backpacks to enjoy snacks and drinks while on the trails.

Season passes are good for the following year if our season falls short of 30 days of operation (46 days and 31 days the last two seasons on natural snow). With new snowmaking we estimate doubling our days of operation this winter. We have been open for night skiing on Wednesdays again. Bring your headlamp or rent one in the lodge. Ski packages are for sale including skis, bindings, boots, and poles, (all new) in the price range from $345 - $385+. Email us with interest in purchases of ski equipment: <hans@xcskihighpoint.com>. 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 <hans@xcskihighpoint.com>. Best, Hans
