Pisgah Winter Trails Map

Winter Operations

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: 

  • Acquire your rentals for skiing and riding ahead of your visit at a local retailer. 


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.
