30 minutes from Syracuse, Labrador Mountain is a great day/evening activity for the whole family.
With a variety of beginner hills (blue circle) to experienced runs (black diamond), Lab has always been one of my favorite places to Ski in Central New York.
Granted, I did go to school in Colorado so it’s hard to live up to skiing in New York when you’re used to the Rockies. However, I have always considered Lab to be one of my favorite mountains. I refer to it fondly when thinking of where I learned to ski and where I’ve had endless amount of good times.
The dynamic and the ability of the skiers, from students with their Ski Clubs to novice & experienced adults and families make skiing here a diverse adventure. In the evening the lights come on and the half pipe is full of snowboarders and skiers trying out tricks and flips, it’s very entertaining.
