A longstanding fixture of outdoor recreation in Central New York is up for sale, at a reduced price, through Canaan Realty. Previously listed at $2.9 million, it is now available for $2.4 million. The listing includes all 156 acres, the 22,000-sq-ft lodge, mechanic’s warehouse, outbuildings, and all the existing equipment.
From the top of the ski run at 1135 Toggenburg Rd, you’ll get breathtaking views of the picturesque rolling hills and farms of Southern Onondaga County. The 156-acre property provides the opportunity for the buyer to place their stamp on the Central New York landscape for years to come as a winter or year-round destination.
A Family-Friendly Ski Resort
As Central New York residents remember, the previous owners operated this property as Toggenburg Mountain Ski Resort. “It’s a really great location,” says Allen. “It is very accessible to a large number of people in the CNY area.”
One unique aspect is the layout of the site: whether you’re in the lodge or the parking lot, you have an unobstructed view of the face of the hill. “That’s a nice bonus for parents and school trips – even if they’re not skiing themselves, parents can keep an eye on their kids,” explains Allen. “It may not be the largest mountain, but it has both challenging runs and gentle slopes, making it a great place to learn how to ski.”
A Destination Location
Of course, the destination can be much more than just a ski resort. “The facility and grounds present a great opportunity with so many possibilities,” says Allen. Although the property is in a peaceful, rural setting, it is conveniently located a short drive from the crossroads of Central New York, I-81 and the Thruway. The location can attract people from Rochester to Utica and Binghamton to Watertown. It could be utilized as a retreat and conference center, a wedding venue, or even a glamping site. The property includes trails, wooded areas, a pond, and frontage along Tioughnioga Creek, as well as on-site parking for 300+ cars. A video on the listing page provides a bird’s-eye view of the scenic property.
“The site and existing infrastructure lend themselves to a lot of different uses,” Allen notes. “Along with the acreage, you’re getting the property essentially as it was when the current owner purchased it: the lodge is there, the kitchen is intact. Everything is already there, down to the cash registers in the office.” The owner is selling the facility with all its existing equipment and infrastructure, including the ski lifts and snowmaking machine. The free span lodge has a steel frame structure, so the new owner could remove the interior walls to dramatically open up the space. The possibilities are endless.
