Winter & Spring Outdoor Activities
Most popular Adirondack summer activities simply take on a slight twist in the frosty winter. Many summer hiking trails become well-traveled ski and snowshoe trails. Golf courses take on new life as cross-country ski centers. The high peaks are always accessible for a cold-weather hike with an licensed Adirondack guide.
Ice-covered cliffs and frozen waterfalls become popular Adirondack ice climbing hangouts. Area lakes are great for ice skating and cross-country skiing. They also draw legions of ice fishermen, and many play host to popular fishing derbies throughout the winter. Old logging roads that provide mountain bikers their summer routes, often become trails for use by snowmobile clubs in the area. And of course, Whiteface Mountain is the place to be for a world-class downhill skiing and boarding experience.
