Hickory Ski Center Open on All Lifts This Weekend
Hickory Ski Center has received almost 18 inches of snow during the last 7 days and will be opening all lifts on Saturday (1/22/2011) morning. With a powder and packed powder surface Hickory will be showcasing the best all natural snow ski and riding in the Adirondacks.
Hickory is open Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 9 A.M. 4 P.M. Complimenting Hickory's great natural snow will be added grooming from their new Winch Cat groomer that lays down some incredible corduroy for blasting the groomers and laying down perfect turns. If you're interested in playing in the Terrain Park, there are several new features to work out your best tricks. For those of you that prefer the challenges of wooded glades and steep terrain Hickory provides a unique opportunity to take some incredible runs on all natural terrain.
The Snow Sports School is geared up to teach lessons of all abilities from the first time skier or rider up to the advanced skier looking to refine their skills on Hickory's legendary steeps or glades. Beginner packages and private lessons are available directly from the Ski School Desk in the base lodge.
Hickory offers the unique, fun to use Snow-DAG ticket system. Once you have your Snow-DAG card, you will be able to use it every time you come to the mountain. A great feature of the Snow-DAG system is the ability to save both time and money by purchasing your lift tickets online ahead of time. Your online purchase will recharge your card and set you up for your next visit to the mountain.
HickorySki Center is located in Warrensburg, NY just 5 minutes from Interstate 97, exit 23. Hickory is a regional destination for snow sports and offers a rare opportunity to enjoy family style skiing and riding in an all natural snow environment.
