The immediate towns and surrounding areas of Great Pines are world class winter destinations! Old Forge NY is the snowmobiling capital of NYS and one of the three largest snowmobiling destinations in the country! Known as the town with record low temperatures Old Forge becomes a winter wonderland. Great Pines is centrally located off of Trail 5 the main artery for snowmobiling with access to Fourth Lake. The resort is a few short miles from McCauley Mountain ski hill home to some of our favorite glades and mogul trails on the East Coast. McCauley Mountain also has hundreds of miles of perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails. Inlet has night time cross country trails and indoor ice skating located at Fern park just a few miles up the road! Town is vibrant in the winter with so much to offer from gift stores to a local brewery there is something for everyone!
