The 24 ski trails (longest is 1.25 miles/2 km) are served by six lifts: 1 triple chair, 4 double chairs and a Wonder Carpet. Twelve trails are illuminated for night skiing, and snowmaking covers 95% of the trails to supplement the average 8 feet (2.44 meters) of annual snowfall.

Equipment rentals are available. Skiing and snowboarding lessons also are available for everyone, down to children 3 and 4 years old.

A spacious cafeteria keeps you fueled up for the slopes.

Mohawk State Forest has cross-country trails for Nordic/cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, but they are separate from the downhill ski area.

Mohawk Mountain Ski Area was founded in 1947 by Skiing Hall of Fame member Walt Schoenknecht. The following year it is said that he invented snowmaking here.
