Capital - Saratoga

City celebrations and mountaintop fun!

Winter fun reigns in this eclectic region. Events from Albany's Food & Wine Fest, to Victorian strolls in Troy and Saratoga, Capital-Saratoga's aglow with seasonal celebrations!

An easy drive from New York City, upstate Capital-Saratoga attracts winter visitors and vacationers.  Picturesque scenery-from frozen lakes to snow-covered ski hills-surrounds charming villages, historic theaters, and a lively casino. Great Sacandaga Lake features snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice-fishing contests, winter fireworks and other events.

Three ski mountains-Maple Ridge, Royal Mountain and Willard Mountain-have a variety of trails and terrain parks, from novice to super-challenging. Cross-country skiers enjoy unspoiled wilderness, nature trails and even Saratoga National Historical Park.

Après ski, stay in a cozy B&B or a grand hotel like the Gideon Putnam Resort, in Saratoga Spa State Park.  Whether holiday shopping and sight-seeing, visiting museums, taking in a show or dining at fine restaurants, you're sure to find a winter wonder the whole family will enjoy!
