World-class skiing, posh resorts, friendly villages!

The Adirondacks thrill with winter sports like skiing, fishing, snowmobiling, and ice-climbing. Indoors, dine at cozy inns, tour award-winning breweries, or shop in local artisan studios and outlets. Enjoy famous Adirondack lodging hospitality, from rustic cabins to four-star resorts!

Lake Placid, the world's winter sports capital, was voted
#1 of America's Top 10 Coolest Winter Places by Budget Travel. Ski magazine consistently rates the village #1 in North America for off-mountain activities. Ski at Whiteface on the greatest vertical in the East or head to the Olympic Sports Complex to see ice shows or rock the wild Bobsled!

Check out winter carnivals in Lake George and Saranac Lake.  Take time to sample the variety of foods at local restaurants from gourmet meals to hearty pub fare.
