Adirondack Winter landscape

The Adirondacks of Northern New York

Embrace winter the Adirondack way! From snow-covered outdoor adventure to crackling fires in cozy lodging, the Adirondacks have everything you need for the perfect New York winter experience.

Play in the Snow

You're never too old to play in the snow, and the Adirondacks offers endless winter fun for you to enjoy! Well-known for its mountainous terrain, this winter wonderland is a haven for downhill ski and snowboard enthusiasts. Get the full ski vacation experience at one of the Adirondack's world-class resorts nestled in cozy mountain towns throughout the region. Give the slopes a break and explore thousands of miles of trails, both wild and maintained, on snowshoes, cross-country skis, or behind the handles of a snowmobile. If winter sports aren't for you, no worries. You can still channel your inner child on a thrilling toboggan ride or at a winter carnival!

Embrace the Indoors

If you wake in the morning, pull back the curtains, and find mountains of fresh-fallen, glistening snow, you have two options: play in the snow or embrace the indoors! With cozy Adirondack cabins you'll love to stay in all day, warm and inviting cafes and pubs, artisan galleries, shopping boutiques, and much more, you don't need to hibernate to keep out of the cold. There is something special to discover in every small Adirondack town. Whether you curl up by the fire or venture out in search of entertainment, you'll thank Mother Nature for giving you an Adirondack snow day!

The Adirondack Regions
The Adirondack Regions feature over 100 welcoming communities, mountains, lakes, verdant valleys and steep cliffs. Spanning more than six million acres, the Adirondack Mountains are home to the largest protected natural area in the lower 48 of the United States. Like a patchwork quilt, the Adirondacks are made up of twelve distinct regional destinations, each offering their own brand of Adirondack adventure. From the endless canoeing and kayaking in the Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake regions, to the extensive hiking trails of the High Peaks Wilderness in the Lake Placid Region - discover an area as diverse in geography as it is in activities and events. Bicycle between wineries on the Adirondack Coast, or dive to sunken shipwrecks in the Adirondack Seaway near the Canadian Border. You're invited to explore the Lake George Region's family-friendly attractions and discover the Adirondack Tug Hill Plateau's one-of-a-kind recreation opportunities.
