Snow Ridge Ski Resort

Snow Ridge logoSnow Ridge Ski Resort is located in Turin, NY on the Tug Hill plateau. It offers 6 lifts and 22 trails with some modest and often excellent sidecountry too.

The hill’s location and elevation — downwind from Lake Ontario and more than 1000 feet up on the Tug — puts it in an ideal position for snowfall and the Ridge claims an average of 230 inches each year. And that’s a conservative number, it is not marketing.

The ski area can be divided into at least five distinct areas: North Slope, South Slope, Snow Pocket, The Ravine and what we call “The Ridge.” Regardless of what lifts are spinning it can all be accessed if you are willing to hike a little bit.

Snow Ridge is a crucial part of a New York powderhound’s quiver of go-to ski areas. Often — and especially in bad years — it’s one of the best places in the state to score untracked powder. If you’re not a vert snob, and you value deep powder without much competition, Snow Ridge should be on your radar.
