“A classic New England down-mountain backcountry ski trail.”— SpencerB BB
Starting from the Adirondack Loj, follow the Van Hoevenberg trail towards Marcy Dam.
After about a mile, turn right onto the Algonquin trail for Wright peak and after another mile or so, the trail starts to climb more steeply (I transitioned from kick wax to skins at this point).
At approximately 3000 ft of elevation, the ski trail branches off to the left from the hiking trail. Follow the ski trail to the top and then enjoy the ride back down.
Most of the ski out is downhill but there are a few rises on the last mile or two back to the parking lot where skins or kick wax was helpful.
