What to Do

Winter is approaching the Adirondacks!

It's time to start planning your cold weather adventures

From a quick weekend getaway breathing in the brisk mountain air to a week-long family ski trip, there's so much to see and do in the Adirondacks. 

It's never too early to begin planning your vacation. If you're looking for family activities, we have plenty to choose from. Here in the Adirondacks, we have endless mountains to hike in the winter. There’s the 46 High Peaks and many other mountains to ski or ride, with vast evergreen forests just waiting to be explored on cross-country skis or snowshoes. The hardest part of planning your excursion is simply deciding which of our many outdoor activities you want to start with! 

While in Lake Placid, a must-do is a 2.7-mile, leisurely walk around Mirror Lake, complete with a stop for lunch at one of Lake Placid's many savory restaurants. Enjoy the fresh mountain air while taking in the beautiful views over a delicious meal! While you are in town, stop at one of the Olympic venues and be sure to check out our events calendar to add something fun and unique to your visit. 

However you spend your time here, be sure to take advantage of packages and special deals from our many Lake Placid lodging properties. Build your itinerary online with our trip planner tool and then hit the road—straight to the heart of the Adirondacks! Start inventing your perfect day today!
