We finally got some significant snow this winter and the Upstate New York ski resorts are churning out fresh powder to add to it. This weekend you can ski for free at a popular local ski mountain close to the Capital Region.
West Mountain's Snowfest is Saturday
West Mountain Ski Area in Queensbury is holding its annual Snowfest this Saturday, January 28th from 2 pm until 6 pm. There is plenty to do and you can ski for free! West Mountain will have food and drink specials, bonfires, and more.
How to Get Your Free Lift Tickets
There are a limited number of free ski lift passes available so you will want to scoop them up as soon as possible. Just visit Nemer Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Saratoga or Queensbury. That's where you can get your free four-hour voucher.

Big Plans in the Future For West Mountain
"The Woods at West Mountain" is in the works and would consist of many details and changes according to the Daily Gazette. First, the owners want to build a small village at the Northwest Base. This is on the north end of the ski area. At the base of the mountain, there is a more extensive plan for a conference center, spa, a 60 to 80-room hotel, an athletic club, 60 townhouses, 72 condos, an amphitheater, shops, a lodge, restaurants, and 180 apartments! This phase could take up to five years.
