Cross-Country Skiing

Have Poles, Will Travel

Cross-country skiing is one of Tupper Lake's favorite winter pastimes. So don't wait! Come join us as we enjoy free access to the groomed trail network at the Tupper Lake Cross Country Ski Center, break trail on a backwoods cross-country ski adventure, and bundle up for an evening with the Adirondack Public Observatory for "Skiing with the Stars." 

Ski For A Day, A Weekend, A Week

Consider yourself warn! One day on the trails in and around Tupper Lake is never enough. Check out our lodging options and plan on spending a great weekend skiing, dining, and exploring the Adirondacks.
