Skis for the masses!

We have some good used skis for anyone looking to learn to ski. Poles and boots are in short supply but we’ll help get new skiers on the trails. Cost of skis is on a sliding scale (pardon the pun…). Message us using the email form below if you’re interested.

Trails maintained by BHSC on behalf of the DEC are multi-use, non-motorized and open to cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, fat biking, etc. Located on the “Chautauqua Ridge,” lake-effect snow capital of WNY, the five miles of non-motorized trails we groom, as well as adjoining multi-use town and forest roads groomed by the Cherry Creek Sno-Goers snowmobile club and back country trails galore, make up an amazing winter playground that is free and open to the public.
