Top Winter Experiences

Whether you're a winter first-timer or no stranger to big snow and ice, Lake Placid is the perfect place to enjoy a winter getaway full of adventure.

Snow place we'd rather play

Lake Placid doesn't just know winter, it loves winter. It excels at winter. When Mother Nature brings on the snow, we don't let it stop us from having fun, we simply put on more layers and embrace the opportunities cold weather brings! Lakes and ponds freeze over, becoming exciting playgrounds perfect for skating parties, pick-up hockey games, and even the rush of riding a dog sled. The more the snow piles up, the more excited we get, hitting downhill slopes and flat, wooded trails on skis and snowshoes. All winter, we throw on our favorite sweaters and hit the bobsled track, soar into the sky on a scenic gondola, and explore the world by horse-drawn sleigh.
