McCauley is one of the best kept secrets in NY, I ski this mountain often and think it is one of the best mountains in NY. McCauley has 633' of vertical terrain and 23 trails, but has the feel of a big mountain. If you like bumps and glades McCauley has the best; they have bump and glade runs for beginners right up to a true expert, with big drop type runs. McCauley also has great cruiser runs from gentle slopes to steep headwalls. On the lower mountain there are great runs for the beginners who are just getting started, once you have mastered the lower mountain you are ready for the top. In 2010 McCauley added new terrain features for there terrain park, and have made big improvements in the past couple of years. This mountain has terrain for every level of skier in the family, not to mention the best prices around. I have found this to be the best value around for ski mountains. Right now McCauley has some of the best conditions in NY, they have been getting snow almost every day and have been pumping out the snow for a great base. They have also purchased a new groomer and grinder for 2010 creating some of the best groomed trails around. I recommend making the trip, you won't be disappointed going to McCauley Mtn.
