Welcome to SkiFest 2018! Registration opens Monday, February 5th @ 8 a.m.!
Call the Mountaineer at 518.576.2281 to register by phone. Registration fees for clinics and tours must be paid in full at the time of registration. Full refunds will be allowed for cancellations up to a week in advance. During the final week we will only give a refund if we are able to fill your spot (barring special circumstances).
Before registering, be sure to go over the Ability Levels guidelines to select an appropriate tour for your ability, fitness and experience. This is extremely important–for your sake and the sake of others please be honest about your ability. Note that this refers in part to backcountry ability–an expert skier who has never skinned before does not belong in the advanced tour.
This is a benefit event for the NYSEF youth nordic ski programs and the Adirondack Ski Touring Council, accordingly there will be no cancellations due to weather or conditions.
Guides & instructors will select the best route and objectives for the day based on current weather and conditions, and as with the Mountainfest this is an ‘any mountain weather event’.
If you have questions please contact the staff at the Mountaineer.
