Winter Activities

Part of what makes Mohonk Mountain House so popular is its winter activities. During the colder months, you can experience the trails on foot or by snowshoe and cross country skis. These snow-covered trails offer a winter wonderland like no other, especially when you can get a view of the scenic resort. Ice skating is another famous winter activity offered by the resort which brings many visitors to the property each year.

If you prefer to spend the colder days inside, you can look forward to cozy days by the fireplace.


Mohonk Mountain House is surrounded by nature. The half-mile-long Lake Mohonk is a glacial lake enclosed by forests. Guests can row-boat, canoe, kayak, and paddleboard around the serene body of water. There are beaches around the lake for swimmers to warm up after their refreshing dip and dramatic overlooks to soak in the glorious sight. Naturalist Michael Ridolfo leads guided nature tours and bird walks. Mohonk Mountain House guests have access to over 85 miles of trails for every level of hiker to explore the Catskill Mountains. The iconic Shawangunk Ridge provides intense rock climbing to those searching for a challenge.
