Riding Pow in NY

I already know that this is ridiculous so if you don't have anything helpful than just say so. I was wondering if there is any place that might have a "sidecountry" type of riding in NY. Something more west would be cool, but I know Adirondacks is where it's gonna be. Just anywhere I could ride that isn't a ski resort. Maybe a cross country place, might have some mellow hills to ride.

Books will tell you proper skin track locations if there aren't anywhich can help keep avy exposure minimal. Agh screw it go to your local golf course and ride a small hill there. Is there any difference in vert?

I just picked this book up about two weeks ago. It is very informative. Although, the section on NY backcountry is a little short.

Yea, me and my friends are heading up to Whiteface sometime this year. We are just going to feel it out up there. As for snowmobiling to a place. I found a little public park near me with a 1,600 to like 300 gladed area. It's only 5 miles from me with snowmobile trails leading to it so it should be an easy snow day from college trip. Any one whose been to Whiteface or Gore know if the side country or backcountry there is rideable or is it too gladed.

I just finished reading the section on backcountry near Lake Placid. Apparently there is a long trail that is either skinable or snowshoeable (is that a word) that spans across several towns with maintained downhill riding areas in between. If I remember correctly they mentioned that it is illegal to cut new trails so the exhisting trails are the only thing that it rideable. The glades may be too thick to ride. But, don't take my word for it.

Also, I destinctly remember them mentioning that trail maps should be available in the Lake Placid area. You really should pick up the book mentioned above.

I live in Western NY though. I actually might when I get a few extra bucks here. Have you been to Gore or White Face, jw cause I was in Stowe last year and by the looks of it, it would be pretty hard to backcountry in the Northeast coast. It is too gladed. I just want to know if Gore or WF has a rideable backcountry.

That's true. I was just messing with him, I am getting it. I just figured there would be info out there besides a book. But it's NY so I kinda figured. How does it work in like BC. Is all that backcountry people ride like unowned land or national parks or something? Everything is owned here. The only place left to look is parks, except Upstate a little more.
