Experience a classic winter Adirondack tradition. When Mirror Lake freezes over, mushers set up shop along Main Street. Visitors can walk down, and pay the driver directly to experience this exciting sled ride across the ice. Frequently, people ask about the safety of the lake for this kind of activity. The drivers always check the thickness of the ice on the lake to ensure the safety of their dogs as well as their passengers. When there is plenty of snow, but not enough ice, the vendors set up at the Horse Show Grounds, where the views of the High Peaks are incredible.
