Powder… oodles and oodles of powder. That’s what central New York ski slopes are known for. Slopes along the Tug Hill Plateau have the distinction of record snowfall east of the Rocky Mountains (374” is the record to date) and the Adirondacks offer olympic quality mountains for all levels. There’s alpine, free style, telemark and snowboarding runs of all shapes and sizes in our area and many Wellnesste guests love to enjoy the central New York area’s ski and snowboard slopes.
