All Guests of Woods Valley

  • Face coverings will be required at all times.
  • NYS guidelines request that you limit your time indoors. If you have a Season Pass, please go straight to the lift when possible.
  • Plan on using your vehicle as a mini base lodge. Gear up at your car, leave all bags in your vehicle unless you have a locker in which to store your items.
  • Lift lines will have room for social distancing. Families can always ride together and friends can only ride with members of their traveling party.
  • If you feel ill, stay home and get well. You can visit another day.

Season Pass Holders

Unlimited Season Passholders will not be limited in the use of their pass.
NYS requires that Woods Valley capture all guests' contact information for every visit. Woods Valley will require that Season Passholders sign in online so that we know you are our guest for the day. Failure to comply will result in the loss of pass privileges.

Ticket Sales

Please purchase your tickets in advance online and have only one person in your party enter the lodge to get the tickets. (This will reduce waiting times at the window and reduce the number of people in the lobby.) Click here to purchase online. All ticket purchasers must fill out the Covid Waiver and Health Screening form. The Health Screening form must be filled out on the day of your visit. There will be some busy holidays or weekends where we will limit ticket sales and buying online will ensure that you can ski and ride.

Snow Sports School

Woods Valley has lessons for all types of skiers and riders. Private and Group lessons will be offered. Please call (315) 827-4104 to reserve your lesson slot. All students will be required to fill out the Covid-19 health screening form every day they have a lesson.


Woods Valley maintains a large rental fleet of skis, boots, poles, helmets and snowboards for our guests. If you are able to purchase a lift ticket, we will have rental equipment for you. Therefore, we are not selling this product on our webstore. Rest assured that as always, the equipment is sanitized between uses.


Woods Valley's tubing hill is very popular. To ensure that all guests have a wonderful time and can socially distance, we will be selling tubing tickets in time slots. Guests should purchase online to ensure availability for the time they choose. Click here to purchase online. Spectators, unless family, must maintain 6 feet between viewers.

Food and Beverages

Our renovation has added approximately 30% more space inside. However, table space and seating will be limited based on the current regulations. Guests will be asked to vacate tables if not eating. Guests not purchasing food or beverages from Woods Valley will be asked to eat in their cars on busy days.
