FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We are disappointed and heartbroken to say that we will not be opening for the 2018/2019 Skiing & Snowboarding Season. We hope to have better news for our Skiing and Snowboarding friends in the Spring so keep checking back!

We have a brand new 13,000 square foot lodge which sits in a new location that is at the bottom of Macaroon. The lodge was moved from the original site due to spacing needs (new lodge is about 4x bigger than the old one) and ease of access (new location provides better access for beginners to get to the learning area).

We also have a state-of-the-art 3,000 square foot outdoor stage that sits right next to the lodge.  It will be the perfect location to enjoy concerts and so much more!

We’ve added a 10-acre terrain park over on the Crackerjack slope by cutting down trees and doubling the width of the slope! The Terrain Park will have many features and will be a great ride for all age groups.

We’ve also updated all the lifts and repainted the chairs.

We’ve added a brand new 10-lane tubing hill!

We’ve added over 8,000 feet of new snowmaking pipe and purchased 12 new snow guns.

There are more improvements ahead so stay tuned!

We are proud to say that our resort is very friendly to kids and beginners. We have great slopes and trails to learn how to ski/snowboard on and we offer an excellent beginners’ area as well. We have a great ski school that offers lessons for people of all ages. We also have intermediate and expert trails/slopes if you want the higher-level practice!

Yes, we are excited that our rental shop does have the proper sizing available to accommodate kids and adults!

Yes, we will have a retail shop where Cockaigne apparel can be purchased.  Items such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and more!

We are happy to offer two dining experiences to guests. An Eatery that allows guests who come in and quickly grab a bite to eat; and a Bar that offers more of a restaurant-style, sit down dining option!

The bar will be open every day that the Resort is operational; Friday and Saturday the bar will be open later – until midnight!

We hope that our brand-new professional stage will host some of the top artists in the country! We’re excited to grow as a music venue during the summers to help keep us busy and open! The stage is set at the bottom of a slope and the audience will watch shows from the slope where there won’t be a bad view in the house, thanks to the incline of the hill!

Future plans include; mountain biking, camping, hiking, summer tubing, and a whole lot more! We will be entertaining guests year-round!

We are pleased and excited to welcome couples to Cockaigne on their special day!

We have beautiful facilities with plenty of space for all your family and friends! With over 400 acres of rolling property with the best views of the Chautauqua Ridge, there are plenty of options for your ceremony and pictures!
