The 15th Annual Adirondack Backcountry Ski Festival

Skifest is an Annual Backcountry Ski Festival hosted by The Mountaineer Keene Valley. Join us on one of our guided clinics in the backcountry on ungroomed terrain and "slides" on Saturday and Sunday. We offer mini-clinics and free demos at Otis Mountain, in Elizabethtown, on Saturday March 4th which is a great opportunity to introduce family or friends to the world of ski touring and backcountry travel. We'll be offering an Avalanche awareness course on Saturday and Sunday with a slideshow featuring Patagonia's Zahan Billimoria on Saturday night. Check our website for more information!
