Cross-country ski

Ski the Coast

During the winter season, the Lake Champlain hiking trails, waterways, and fields freeze and become covered in snow, making them perfect for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Grab your skis or snowshoes and explore the extensive Lake Champlain trail system.

Choose your trail

Head to one of the region's state parks for open terrain, or ski or snowshoe on frozen Lake Champlain. For groomed cross-country ski trails, check out Roger's Rock in Ticonderoga. Whatever surface you seek, you'll be surrounded by the peaceful snow-covered landscape while breathing in the fresh Adirondack air.
