The closest winter sports facility to New York City is right here in Bergen County at Campgaw Mountain Reservation. Only 18 miles from the George Washington Bridge, Campgaw is run by the Bergen County Department of Parks and has it all – you can ski, snowboard and tube down the mountain day and night.
There’s all sorts of fun here and it’s also a learning center with group and private lessons for you and your family – here’s some children at a Skiwee session:
For the more adventurous, however, there’s the thrill of snowboarding and those glorious jumps.
If you’re more “down to earth, there’s also the fun of sliding down the mountain on a snow tube.
But if you’re a traditionalist, you can ski downhill with abandon!
Campgaw Mountain Reservation is open year round because in warmer weather it’s a favorite hiking and camping retreat. But, in the winter, it becomes a snow park where you and your family can come for “in your backyard” winter sports. Campgaw is just another reason why it’s fun to live in Bergen County and why our Bergen County homes are so valued. I bet you didn’t expect a ski resort only 30 minutes from Manhattan!
