Royal Mountain Ski Area, New York

Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall, Royal Mountain Has It All!

Royal Mountain Ski Area is fast becoming one of the most progressive family ski areas in New York State.

Conveinently located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, Royal is less than one hour from Albany and Utica.

Since 1999, Royal Mountain has installed 3 new chair lifts which are capable of moving over 3,000 skiers per hour up the mountain. Yearly snow making improvements now enable us to cover over 95% of the ski area with snow.

Recently more work was done on the gladed trails and the area continues to upgrade the terrain park. Major improvements are done every summer, but snow making and grooming will always be the hallmark at Royal Mountain. "Corduroy Joe" Mulyca has received rave reviews by every ski writer in the Capital District for our grooming that is second to none!

C'mon-up and see why! Royal will be open weekends, holidays and holiday weeks.
