Cross Country Skiing Tail Conditions Trail Map
The Boutwell Hill State Forest is located on the Chautauqua Ridge and receives a significant amount of lake-effect snow each year, more than most parts of WNY. BHSF has the earliest snowfalls and snow lasts longer than any location in Chautauqua County.
The Boutwell Hill Ski Club was organized in the Fall of 2015 to develop and groom cross country ski trails in the Boutwell Hill State Forest (BHFS). The trails include about 3 miles of non-motorized, multi-use trails, as well as 5 miles of multi-use DEC forest and town roads.
