Northfield Mountain, Cross Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

Trail passes are required and available at the ticket window.

Northfield Mountain has more than 25 miles of trails designed specifically for cross country skiing and groomed for both classical and free-style skiing. Our trails offer some of the finest Nordic skiing in the region, from beginner trails to the demanding 800-foot vertical climb of Tenth Mountain Trail. Hikers, dogs and other pets are excluded from our trails during the ski season. Trail use will be for cross country skiing or snowshoeing only and all guests are required to display a valid trail pass each day.

Trails will be open for use from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

From December to March if snow cover is completely absent, too icy, thin, or inconsistent for safe skiing, the trails may be open for hiking and walking with specific recommendations for traction devices to be worn. Once there is adequate snowfall, we will groom and open the trails for cross-country skiing.
