Cross-country Ski and Snowshoe Center

During the winter months, the Paul Smith’s College VIC becomes a cross-country ski center with over 25 miles of trails for classic skiing, skate skiing, and snowshoeing. The varied terrain is great for beginners and experienced skiers, with many loop options and connector trails. The VIC often gets and retains noticeably more snow than other places in the Adirondacks, which means the VIC’s trails make great skiing when snowfall is limited.
