    On-site Adventures at The Emerson

    The Emerson Cross Country Ski Trail
    The Emerson Resort & Spa is proud to be a member of the Cross Country Ski Areas Association. Cross Country Skiing is easy to learn, it is healthy, family friendly, accessible and most of all affordable. Grab your ski or snowshoe rentals at our Ski Shop in the Country Store and venture out on our 1.2 mile cross country trail! Upon your return, relax by our outdoor firepit with a cup of hot chocolate from the Country Store Cafe. Sound like this is only for Emerson guests? No way! The trail is open to all visitors looking for fun in our winter playground. We’ll see you on the trail!

    Open Daily (depending on snow level) from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
    Rates: $10 area charge / $20 rental ski boots and poles or snow shoes.

    Sorry – The Emerson Ice Skating Pond is Currently Closed.
    The Emerson Ice Skating Pond

    A clear crisp moon lit night, a warm inviting fire reflecting on a frozen country pond, skaters darting to and fro in the shadow of a Red Country Barn. Children’s warming themselves with hot chocolate and toasting marshmallows completes a perfect winter night. Our outdoor skating pond is the perfect end to a great family day of skiing. Rentals are available in our ski shop and our pond is attended weather permitting and with restricted hours.

    *Please note hours & ice skating rental prices are to be announced.

    Please Note: New York statutory law (general obligation law 9-103) gives relief to property owners from liability for recreational activities like cross country skiing, snow shoeing or ice skating. Ski at your own risk.
