When the days get shorter, and the temps drop below zero, thousands of lakes and pond in the Adirondacks of New York transform into smooth, icy outdoor playgrounds. Friends, family, and fans flock to ice-covered ponds to cheer on their favorite team. Sharpen your skates, grab some warm layers and head to the Adirondacks for the Adirondack Ice Bowl!
