The Santanoni Preserve is a State Historic Site, on the National Register of Historic Places, and a National Historic Landmark. AARCH has long been associated with the protection, interpretation and restoration of this regional treasure. The round-trip ski is 9.8 miles on a gently sloping carriage road. There is no fee and reservations are not required. For more information please contact AARCH at 518-834-9238 or ssusan@aarch.org.
