Steepest Trail In The East

Hickory Ski Center is located on 225 of the most scenic Adirondack acres in northeastern New York. It overlooks the junction of the Hudson and Schroon Rivers. Hickory has been entertaining guests of all abilities since the 1940's.

Hickory Ski Center offers skiing and snowboarding for all ability levels. Our trails range from easiest to most difficult. The trails marked easiest are flat and groomed to make it easy for beginners. The trails marked most difficult contain moguls and more advanced skiing terrain. Hickory is proud to have the 6th highest vertical drop (1230 feet) of all the ski areas in New York State. The snow is all natural.

Amenities include a snack bar, open fireplace, picnic tables, a sundeck with benches. Woods, meadows, and the sounds of a fresh water brook make for a relaxing and enjoyable break while resting on the sundeck watching the skiers.

Hickory Ski Center has been in business since 1946.
While other mountains have modernized with snow making,
lights and dozens of employees, Hickory has continued to
operate on volunteer help almost exclusively.
