Scenic Lift Rides/Hiking
Come to West Mountain and enjoy a Scenic Chairlift Ride and Hiking to enjoy the views!
Our Scenic Chairlift Rides to the Mountain-Top offer stunning views of the Adirondack and Vermont mountains and the Hudson River Valley region. A scenic lift ride is the perfect way to see the beautiful region in a whisk. Once you arrive at the top of the mountain, we suggest hiking on our mixed-use cross-country trails (map below) including our “Crow’s Nest” trail that will take you to West Mountain’s Beautiful Scenic Hudson River Valley Overlook. Hikers can take the chairlift back down to the base area or they can follow our “Slideshow” trail down the mountain to the Base Lodge. Hikers are also welcome to hike on our regular ski trails with their access band. Please wear appropriate athletic footwear. It’s fun and fitness for the whole family, a group of friends, or romantic outing! We also have several games and food and beverage at the Main Base Area. We will open for Scenic Chairlift Rides in July, 2020.
