Ski Center Status:

7:03 am, Sunday:  We received 12"+ of snow in the last storm.  SKIING IS FANTASTIC!  HARD PACKED POWDER AND BLUE SKIES WITH TEMPERATURES STARTING IN THE TEENS AND GOING ABOVE FEEZING MID DAY:)   (Ski it while you can before it all melts next week.  All trails were machine packed and tracked.  We expect great skiing for today, but on Monday and Tuesday there is rain in the forcast.  It is not looking good for Wednesday night skiing from 4 - 8 pm next week.   (We have head lamps for rent ... or bring your own).  Plans are to start making snow when the next cold front comes through.  Thank you for making High Point Cross Country Ski Center your ski destination.  The Waxing Wizzard from Swix can assist you with choosing the best wax:  http://www.swixsport.com/Wax-Resources/Wax-Wizard, or we will give you tips.

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 an upgraded snow making system that first will cover 2 km of trail and later be extended if Mother Nature does not cooperate, miscellaneous grooming machinery for classic and skate skiing, ski rentals for all ages, and snowshoes for the 8 km Monument (snowshoe) Trail.  

On 17 February we will start to 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 again this summer and fall to be able to operate with minimal amounts of snow.  (Save this web page in your favorites to see morning and night trail report updates depending on what "Mother Nature" sends our way.) Click to see video from last season when all of our trails had super conditions.
