Hi Ry - I XC ski also, but have not been out this either. I usually ski bushwack style in Wawayanda or Harriman, but those need close to a foot of snow because of rocks. If we should get 4 inches or so, I hit the local county golf course. Snow gods are not with us this year.

If you are lookibg for a groomed track for skate ski, there is Minewauska and Fahnstock, both NY state parks that groom a track if there is natural snow. Mohonk House grooms too, and has 40 miles. I have not been, but have heard good things about Garnet Hill in the Adirondacks.

Happy trails, by bike or ski!

I started XC skiing a few years ago. I've had a good time at several Monmouth County Parks; Huber, Thompson and Holmdel. High Point is pretty nice with a section of ungroomed trails and another section of very groomed trails. Mohonk is huge! I plan to try Hartshorne if we get enough snow and maybe even the beach. I wish I got backcountry skis instead of touring, but they are still fun off the trails.
