Swain Resort – The perfect skiing experience for every member of your family. Come enjoy what winter really has to offer at a ski resort that insists you leave with a smile on your face. We offer terrain for all abilities, and we thrive on introducing new people to our sport with lessons packages for every age. Be our guest and come play in the snow. Swain Resort is the longest, continuously running ski area in New York State and just one hour south of Rochester with 30 slopes (and growing!) to satisfy every ambition or ability, including two terrain parks. On-site amenities include downhill ski/snowboard rentals and lessons; overnight accommodations; The Shawmut (slope side bar & grill); Espresso Lift Coffee House; and Mercer’s Café (a la carte style dining). During the summer months Swain provides lift-accessed mountain biking, motocross, and an archery festival in the fall.
