Ski Areas > US North East > Cockaigne, New York




  I went skiing here about ten years ago or so and I fell down and it hurt real bad I remember. But other than that it was great. Says Derek.

Cockaigne has a much lower than average ratio of challenging slopes and a much higher than average percentage of green and blue ski trails. This ski hill has 100 acres of skiable terrain, and it's all blanketed by good snow. Cockaigne is a cozier than average ski resort boasting a smaller size than average drop compared
    to other east coast ski resorts. The 15 ski trails at this ski mountain are totally fun. The 430 foot elevation difference is naturally not that much to brag about, but Cockaigne makes up for it by other means. Cockaigne has a comparatively
modest selection of ski trails and a modest amount of ski lifts. Cockaigne has the biggest drop among ski resorts in a 33 mile radius. Great exercise and just hanging out with your skiing friends outdoes anything. The snowboarding and the skiing in this part of the country is so much fun the whole ski season. This ski resort obtains heavier snowfall than the local average each snow season. The snow here becomes truly deep, 23 feet per year, and that is an enormously  
good depth. The 4 good ski lifts here will get you up the mountain efficiently. This is a great site for everyone with scores of intermediate or beginner slopes for beginners. You may have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the bottom of the hill if you want to spend a night, but do reserve a room prior to departure because it is a very popular destination. New York gets very delightful in winter; it is so delightful for skiing and snowboarding. Loads of skiers from Jamestown-Dunkirk-Fredonia like to ski here.
