February Skiing Update in the Lake George Area

So far, winter seems to be an on-and-off affair in the Lake George Area. We’ve had some weeks where the snow falls non-stop. Then we have some weeks like this one, where the temperature is going to be pushing 60 degrees. Still, there’s plenty of snow at the ski mountains. The temperatures will certainly be warm, but at least you won’t have to wear as many layers on the slopes at Gore Mountain and West Mountain. Here’s what’s going on at the Lake George Area ski mountains.

Gore Mountain:

Gore Mountain is ready for the President’s week rush. They have 96% of their terrain open as of Tuesday morning, which amounts to 73 trails being served by 14 lifts. With an additional six-inches of fresh snow in the past week after a big recent storm, there’s plenty of snow to go around at Gore Mountain.

Freestylers need to check out all seven of their terrain parks. If you haven’t had enough skiing or riding by the time the lifts stop spinning at Gore, head down to the Ski Bowl for twilight skiing until 8 p.m. The Ski Bowls Nordic terrain is also open until 8p.m.

Calling all ladies! Gore Mountain is offering ladies-only clinics for skiers and snowboarders on February 25th-26th. Visit their website for more details.

West Mountain:

The recent snow has been great for West Mountain as well. Coverage is solid all over the mountain and a large percentage of the mountain is open and ready to ski and ride. West Mountain is boasting 22 open trails and five open lifts as of Tuesday morning. The mountain opens up at 8:30a.m all week and closes at 9p.m. For something a bit different, try tubing at West Mountain. Tubing hours are 10a.m. to 9p.m., and give West a call beforehand to make sure there are tubes available.

Don’t forget! West Mountain offers amazing night skiing. And while you’re at it, stop into the East Slope Bar & Eatery for a drink and some awesome food.

And hey, if skiing or snowboarding aren’t your thing, there are plenty of Lake George Area kids activities going on during February break.

The 7 Best Lake George Area Winter Views

The Lake George Area offers up beautiful views all four seasons so don’t let the snow stop you from taking them in this winter. While some require a hike with appropriate gear (snowshoes, spikes, warm clothing) some of the best views can be accessed by car. Not seeing your favorite spot on this list? Share it with us!

  1. Beach Road & the Lake George Southern Basin

The perfect first stop on your next trip to the Lake George Area. You can take this view in from Beach Road in Lake George Village by Million Dollar Beach. Accessible by car, this view doesn’t require any hiking and you can look north for miles of lake and rolling Adirondack Mountains.

      2 & 3.  2 for 1 at Crane Mountain

A challenging winter hike that rewards with not one, but two great winter views! Make sure you bring snowshoes and spikes as this hike is steep with boulders and ladders that you’ll have to climb up. This hike is a 3.2 mile loop with a shorter and steep path one way and a longer but not as steep trail the other way that brings you along a beautiful spring fed mountain ridge pond on the way down; a perfect spot to take a break and take in the view.

  1. Gore Mountain

Skiers and riders should head to Gore Mountain not just for great skiing and riding but beautiful views for miles. With four peaks you’ll get Adirondack vistas in every direction with snowcapped trees surrounding you at each peak.

  1. Brant Lake

Step out on frozen Brant Lake and you’re instantly surrounded by unforgettable 360-degree views. Walk around the lake and see ice fishers and snowmobiles out every weekend. Spend an entire day on the lake for the annual Brant Lake Winter Carnival! Make sure the lake is completely frozen over and safe before you venture out!

  1. The Sagamore

This luxury resort is nestled on its own island on Lake George and offers stunning views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Whether you’re staying for the week or dropping by for a cocktail or meal don’t miss a walk by the lake. If you time your visit right in the late afternoon you’ll witness the suns rays hitting the mountains on the east side of the lake as the moon rises over the same mountains. A magnificent site year round!

  1. West Mountain

While your skiing and riding at West Mountain during the day you’ll find sprawling views to the West of Queensbury and Glens Falls with mountains in the far distance. At night (yes there is night skiing at West Mountain) you’ll see lights from nearby Glens Falls.

Q&A: 10 Things You Need to Know About Fat Bikes

The Lake George Area has long been a destination for people who love to do things, whether it’s skiing (on water or snow) hiking, trail running, parasailing, zip lining, swimming, or even relaxing. We wanted to dig into the Fat bike craze. We decided to talk to a local cyclist who has long enjoyed the incredible views in this region via a road bike and a mountain bike and who has now begun to experiment with fat bikes.

We’ve been hearing a lot about fat bikes. We have to ask, what is a fat bike?

Fat bikes are basically a modified mountain bike. The term mostly refers to the obviously wider, oversized tires. The tires are about twice the width of normal mountain tires, and they excel in sand and snow because they act almost like balloons floating over terrain. The frames are modified to fit these specialized tires, but essentially, the frames look exactly like their mountain bike cousins.

What has made them become so popular?

They have opened up a whole new season of biking. Now, riding in the winter is so much easier and a lot more fun. Serious bikers can train longer. Fat bikes are actually cheaper because of simpler (more traditional style) construction and most leave out suspension. Fat bikes are a lot lighter than you’d think, but mostly they’re just a blast to ride.

Do you need different gear to enjoy a fat bike?

You don’t need anything different, unless you’re riding in the winter, then it’s a case of layering and dressing smart for the cold weather. Some added frame options for cold-weather riding include fenders for ice and mud and handlebar mitts to handle super cold air.

Where can you ride a fat bike?

Anywhere, particularly where there’s sand or snow–places where flotation is key.

Do I need to be a great cyclist to go fat biking?

Not at all. In fact, it might be a perfect introduction to off-road biking.

Do you say “I’m going fat biking” or do you just go biking and it happens to be on a fat bike?

It’s usually referred to as going fat biking–it just sounds fun, doesn’t it? It distinguishes where you’re going to ride: off-road, sandy or snowy trails.

What is the biggest difference in how it feels to ride a fat bike vs a mountain bike vs a road bike?

Fat bikes are a bit heavier than a typical mountain bike; a rider would feel the biggest difference when riding on the road because so much more rubber is in contact with the ground. Steering can be a bit harder because of tire width and gearing is simplified because speeds are generally on the slower side.

If you were to give advice to three types of people to get the most out of what the Lake George Area has in the way of fat biking, what would you say to:

For those who have never fat biked:

Rent a bike from Grey Ghost in downtown Glens Falls. Then ride on the XC trails in Crandall Park (beginner to intermediate) or Gurney Lane MTB Park (beginner to expert). Look for hard-pack, crusty or light powder conditions. Don’t try to tackle a ride just after a big snowstorm.

For those who are once-every-couple-of-years bikers:

If you plan on expanding your biking horizons, a fat bike is the perfect way, anytime of year.

And lastly, what would you say to the fat bike die hard:

Prepare to buy another bike.
