Fall Scenic Skyrides, Live Music, Craft Show, Entertainment, and Recreational Activities – October 7 & 8, 2023!
SCENIC SKYRIDES DURING PEAK FOLIAGE
Our four peaks are illuminated with a colorful autumn showcase, providing prime leaf-peeping opportunities. While this time of year does get us excited for winter, there’s plenty of foliage and activities to enjoy on the mountain before the snowmakers get to work. It’s the perfect day to welcome fall and get some fresh Adirondack air with lots of vendors, games, family activities, and live music!
Join us for scenic skyrides, hiking, mountain biking, and disc golf. Choose your skyride aboard either the open-air Adirondack Express or the enclosed Northwoods Gondola. A short hike between the lifts offers the unique opportunity to experience both rides with the same ticket. Take along one of our scavenger hunt game cards or participate in a fun hiking challenge. The last ride up on either lift is at 3:45pm. If you have a downhill biking ticket, please bring your mountain bike up on the Adirondack Express open-air chairlift.
Please note: If you bought your skyride ticket online, do not take your QR code to the lift. Online tickets must be exchanged for SKI3 skyride cards printed at the ticket windows or in Guest Services.
