February 17-19 (Friday-Sunday) – Prospect Mountain (Woodford, Vermont)
Prospect Mountain Nordic Ski Center is a ten-minute drive from Bennington, Vermont.

March 3-5 (Friday-Sunday) Lapland Lake (southern Adirondacks)
Tucked away in a unique snow basin, Lapland Lake enjoys some of the most reliable snowfalls in the East. Trip officially begins with Friday dinner but, as Lapland Lake is only three hours from Mahwah, you may want to arrive in time to ski Friday afternoon. The group will meet each morning to decide on dinner and arrange carpooling.
Lodging at motels in Johnstown, thirty minutes from Lapland Lake. Group dinners at local restaurants.
DAY TRIPS (will be scheduled when snow conditions permit)
- Beginners’ Ski Instruction Day

BEGINNER SKI CLINICS Dates to be announced. Click here for details.
We schedule very few day trips in advance because of the unpredictability of snow conditions. Most day trips are organized on short notice as snow conditions permit through the e-mail listserv “New Jersey Nordic Skiers and Snowshoers” on groups.io. These day trips are initiated by individual members of that group. They are not approved or sponsored by the New Jersey Nordic Ski Club, and all liability rests with the individuals involved.
