All accommodations have easy access to activities and deliver picturesque views and cozy amenities like heated pools and hot tubs. The mountain itself features 67 trails, including plenty of greens and several double black diamonds, 13 chairlifts, freestyle areas of terrain parks, and 320 skiable acres. Hunter offers lessons in addition to an alpine ski team, snowboard competition team, and development competition freestyle program. The mountain is part of the Epic Pass (which includes access to national and international destinations for the season, including Vail, Whistler Blackcomb, Park City, Okemo, and Stowe).


For novice skaters, brush up on your stick skills during Sticktime at the Westchester Skating Academy in Elmsford. Private lessons are also available by appointment. All ages are welcome from beginner to advanced players, and full equipment is required. Sticktime costs $13 per 30-minute session, $25 per 60-minute sessions, and $37 per 90-minute session.

Ice-Skating & Figure Skating

Ice skating is back in motion at Playland Ice in Rye. The rink holds public skate sessions on Fridays from 1:20 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. and Sundays 1:40 p.m. to 3:10 p.m., but make sure you register before you head over.

Another fun and popular rink in Westchester is the Hommocks Park Ice in Mamaroneck, where visitors can enjoy the Friday Night Skate from 7:45 p.m. to 9:45 p.m.

Snowshoeing & Cross-Country Skiing

Grab your gear and enjoy the calming winter air while gliding or stepping through the county’s sprawling landscapes and snow-capped vistas. One prime spot for those who love to explore atop a pair of skis or snowshoes is Croton-on-Hudson’s Croton Point Park. With 508 acres on a peninsula situated alongside the Hudson River, this popular spot boasts both superb views and plenty of historical significance.

The Kitchawan Preserve, a 208-acre natural preserve along Route 134 in Ossining, is a cross-country skier’s paradise, with the North County Trailway running across its eastern border. Those who snowshoe will find plenty of stonewalls, open fields, and dense woodland to explore.

Sledding & Snow Tubing

Wondering where you can sled or snow tube in the county? Your local public golf course is a great place to start, as many welcome kids looking to hit the hills. Yonkers’ Sprain Lake Golf Course and Dunwoodie Golf Course are both superb choices, as is Saxon Woods Golf Course in White Plains. In addition, Westchester County lists three local parks as amenable to snow tubers and sledders: Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, Croton Gorge Park, and Lasdon Park & Arboretum. Keep your eye out: You may find a prime sledding spot at a local public school or municipal area as well. We have a soft spot for Sleepy Hollow High School.
