Ski Center Status:

We received 7-8" of new snow, and all trails have been groomed for classic and skate skiing.  Temperatures will stay in the twenties with sunny skies.  Saturday and Sunday warmer temperatures above freezing is forecasted.  Take advantage of the great skiing while it last.  The Lake Marcia ice is 8+" thick and safe with good skiing.  8 km designated for snowshoeing only, goes past Cedar Swamp natural area and the highest point in NJ.  PS  We would like to recieve more emails, <info@xcskihighpoint.com> from all families interested in joining our youth ski program for grades 1-8.  Thank you for making High Point Cross Country Ski Center your ski destination.  The trails open back up for hiking in April.

High Point Cross Country Ski Center has been featured on NJ Mom'’'s list of 25 Totally Unique Valentine’s Day Ideas in New Jersey" this year! Their website is njmom.com.

New this season is miscellaneous grooming machinery for classic and skate skiing, ski rentals for all ages, snowshoes, and "Fat Bikes" for trial use only on the 8 km Monument (snowshoe) Trail.  

We will offer our rental gear for sale at a range of $150-350 (ski equipment) and $50-150 (snowshoes) depending on models of the boots, skis, poles, and snowshoes.  (Ask for Hans) 

We put down a lot more wood chips this summer and fall to be able to operate with minimal amounts of snow.  (Save this web page in your favorites to see trail report updates in the morning or at night depending on what "Mother Nature" sends our way.) Click to see" video from last season when all of our trails had super conditions.
