The Adirondacks of Northern New York

From glittering sunrise to alpenglow sunset – experience one of the most action-packed winters on the East Coast in New York's Adirondacks. This is where rolling fields and wooded trails are second homes to cross-country skiers and snowshoers, where snowmen are made, and snowball battles waged. This is where, regardless of skill or experience, you can become the skier or rider you were meant to be. Adventure awaits on the slopes, on the ice and at festivals long-cherished and much anticipated. 

Adirondack Ski Slopes & Slides

The Adirondack Region is home to winter sports traditions that span centuries – from alpine ski racing and dogsledding, to snowshoeing and bobsledding. Ride some of the best terrain east of the Rockies at ski resorts like Whiteface Mountain, which boasts the greatest vertical drop in the East, and Gore Mountain, offering miles of family-friendly trails. Other alpine ski centers such as Oak Mountain, Snow Ridge and Titus Mountain offer value, expansive cruising, and incredible views. Nordic skiers and snowshoers can enjoy thousands of miles of groomed and backcountry terrain throughout the Adirondack Park.

Carnevale – Adirondack Style

Across the Adirondacks, villages and towns celebrate winter with unique festivals and zany traditions. This February, join iron-armed competitors for events such as the "Ladies Fry Pan Toss," and take in a parade featuring the famed dance troupe, "The Lawn Chair Ladies," during the 118th Saranac Lake Winter Carnival. From Inlet to Lake George, enjoy fireworks, ice skating, curling, sports competitions and evening entertainment at an array of other winter carnivals, and experience winter like a true Adirondacker!
