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.

This ski resort has 4 lifts, and they make for a calming ride up the slope. There's 100 acres of skiable terrain, and it's all in great shape. This is a cozier than average ski hill featuring a pretty cozy altitude difference compared to other east coast ski resorts. Cockaigne has a modest collection of ski runs
    and quite few ski lifts. The astonishing 23 feet of seasonal snowfall is an incredibly great coverage. When this section of New York is covered in wonderful snow; it is the most grand time of the year for snowboarding and skiing.
This ski area has a much lower than average ratio of black and red slopes and a much higher than average ratio of green and blue ski runs. You may have to settle for a hotel a bit far away from the bottom area if you want to stay for the night, and if you make reservations before you go, you're all set. This ski hill has 15 slopes, and they are totally amusing. You have to go 33 miles to get to a ski resort featuring a greater altitude difference. Cockaigne  
gets higher snowfall than the local average each season. The 430 foot altitude difference is of course not that much to brag about, but Cockaigne has so many other pleasant characteristics. Some people prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, there are loads of good sites for that around here. Great exercise and getting out of the house for a while are good motives to come. Many skiers from Jamestown-Dunkirk-Fredonia like to ski here. This is a family friendly ski resort with a lot of beginner and intermediate trails. The skiing and the snowboarding in this region is loads of fun every day of the winter season.
