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 want to be, where the holidays bring treasured memories, and the snowy landscape beckons you to explore the great outdoors.

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, and explore miles of family-friendly trails at ski resorts throughout the region. Nordic skiers and snowshoers can enjoy thousands of miles of groomed and backcountry trails, and there's ample space for snowmobiling in designated areas throughout the region.

Adirondack Winter Festivities

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 119th 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!
