Mt. Pisgah Recreation Center
Mt. Pisgah is an all season, family friendly mountain that's owned and operated by the Village of Saranac Lake with support from the Friends of Mount Pisgah.
In the winter, Pisgah becomes a classic small-town Adirondack ski and snowboard hill. The mountain's six trails- one easy, two more difficult, and three most difficult- are all served by a single T-bar lift. The easy trails here are perfect for beginners of all ages to perfect their turns. Pisgah also has a tubing hill, snowshoeing trails, and a large base lodge. As it gets dark out early, night skiing, riding, and tubing is a popular attraction.
Be prepared for your visit:
- Food and beverage service will be available in the lodge this winter season and is being provided by ADKstreeteats.
- Acquire your rentals for skiing and riding ahead of your visit at a local retailer.
- Day and ½ day tickets for skiing and snowboarding and 2-hour tickets for tubing can be purchased over the phone or in person at the ticket window for the current day or future dates.
- Please stay home if you are feeling sick!
Thank you for your cooperation keeping our community safe!
Friends of Mt. Pisgah / Saranac Lake Ski Club
This group has been assisting the Village with operation of Mount Pisgah for over the past five decades. It is a volunteer-based group that takes on property maintenance, ski lesson sign ups, lodge rentals, and new projects.
In 1989 this group brought snowmaking to the top of the mountain. In 1997 a new lodge was constructed that is still used today for events year-round. To help create more year-round opportunities at Mount Pisgah, the group fundraised and recieved NYS grant money to add a tubing hill, tennis and basketball courts, as well as a parking lot. More recently, projects were completed with the Village of Saranac Lake staff to add a replacement t-bar, new bike trails, paved walking trails, and a new water line.
The club is membership driven and offers opportunities, such as after school ski lessons, special children's Candy Bar Races, Winter Carnival White Stag Ski Race, Top of the Mountain Race, and the Golden Ski Race. Each year a high school intersectional race for NYS Sections III and VII is held at the mountain.
Friends of Mt. Pisgah Capitol Campaign
In January 2024 Friends of Mt. Pisgah launched a $150,000 Capital Campaign to support necessary upgrades to snowmaking that Parks Manager, Andy Testo,
