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 the 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!
