Terrain Parks - Mt Peter

Rider's Guide

The resort is rather small which makes it incredibly easy to get around. In total, the ski area is 70 acres and contains 11 trails which evenly distributed for beginners, intermediates and advanced skiers and snowboarders. There is more than 500 feet of vertical from summit to base. The resort gets an average of 55” of snow each year, and 100% snowmaking helps to ensure the best conditions despite weather patterns. Most notably, Mount Peter is best known for its incredible free first-time ski and snowboard lessons. Also, it’s one of the closest resorts to New York City.

Parks and Pipes

There is one terrain park at the resort which houses features of various sizes perfect for both beginners and more advanced riders and freestyle skiers. There are manmade and natural jumps, jibs, rails, and boxes for all ages to enjoy. The terrain park is located between the green run Snowfields and the black run River Bottom, which is accessed by Sam’s Chair.

Out of Bounds

The Hudson Valley boasts tons of great outdoor activities as well as indoor activities throughout the winter, plus it is accessible by both car, train and bus from New York City, one of the greatest cities in the world. In the Valley, visitors will find lots of historic and cultural attractions, including the Crailo State Historic Site, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Home and Boscobel Mansion. In addition to a rich history the area has snow tubing parks, ice skating, ice fishing, snowshoeing, sleigh rides and cross country skiing.

Hangout & Hookup

Visitors seeking an active nightlife should be warned that there isn’t a whole lot of après ski options at Mount Peter. The good news however, is that the surrounding towns offer a few pubs and restaurants featuring full-service bars. Since the resort is only about an hour from Manhattan, a day trip to the resort is a fantastic idea for those seeking some daytime excitement on the slopes as well as evening excitement in the city that never sleeps.
