Scenic View Trail 12/15/2013

New Arctic Cat 1/22/2014 

Thank you all skiers and snowshoers who visited High Point XC Ski Center, and all volunteers who helped with the operation. We are CLOSED for the season, but if we receive more snow i.e. tomorrow, feel free to ski. The weekend, 22-23 March was the last days open for the lodge this season. The snow cover is best described as "spring condition", and after yesterday we got several bare spots.  Snow cover is still pretty good in Cedar Swamp.   

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.  We will pack away the gear this weekend 29 and 30 March and Saturday morning before 12, noon is the last time to purchase. (Ask for Hans) 

When snowshoeing on the trails groomed for skiing we ask the snowshoers to stay on the edge of the trail to avoid damaging the groomed tracks. No hiking is allowed on the groomed ski trails, but dogs are allowed for skijoring.  We ask the skier to keep the dog out of the tracks.  Dogs must be on a leash in the part at all times.  (Feel free to share photos by emailing us at hpk@warwick.net. The Cedar Swamp Trail is recommended for beginners, the Scenic View Trail has more rolling terrain to challenge the more experienced skier, and the Steeny Kill Trail will offer a longer back-country ski experience with the most change in elevation.  Wildlife sightings are most likely on the Cedar Swamp Trail. The ultimate view of NJ, PA, and NY is from the Monument Trail on snowshoes or Scenic View Trail on skis. Check back for condition updates. 

We will 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.
