Skiing and Snowshoeing

We have beautiful, groomed, remote trails, where you’ll feel like you’re truly getting away.

About our winter operations:

Tug Hill Outfitters is located on the southern end of the Tug Hill Plateau, in Williamstown, NY. We have ~3.5 miles of privately owned, groomed cross country ski and snowshoe trails.

We do not provide cross country ski rentals, you must bring your own skis. We have a limited number of snowshoe rentals available (10 pairs) in a variety of sizes, please bring your own gear. Our facilities are limited to a porta potty and outdoor changing privy. We’re just getting started and a heated changing area is on our wish list!

We’re not a big operation, but we have well groomed, beautiful, remote trails, where you’ll feel like you’re truly getting away.

When we’re not open, or if you need a place that offers ski rentals, we highly recommend our neighbors to the north:

Osceola Ski & Sport Resort

Owners, Dustin & Christina Hite, recently built a beautiful ski center complete with a cozy new lodge, ski & snowshoe rentals. They are friendly and very knowledgeable about all things XC skiing. You’ll find us there on most Sunday’s skiing while our son is in their group kids lesson, which we highly recommend!

Osceola Tug Hill XC Ski Center

Built on longstanding tradition, this ski center has been a staple for decades. The ski center is under new ownership, Kristin & Tom, very friendly ski enthusiasts turned business owners, who have been making some exciting changes with upgrades to their grooming equipment and renovations to the ski lodge.
