• What’s New in Lake George

    The Lake George Area has expanded its winter season offerings with two new enchanted events - Lake George Winter’s Dream and Winter Realms! Plus, the Brant Lake and Lake George Winter Carnivals, and more will be returning.

  • Ski the 3!

    The Lake George Area is a premier ski destination with three first-rate ski resorts. With legendary terrain, varying features, and frequent upgrades at each resort, there is something for every skier or snowboarder.

  • Fishing Focus: Ice Fishing Follow the First Freeze

    Some winters it takes longer than others for cold and ice to arrive. But winter never fails to arrive in the Southern Adirondacks at some point, and with it comes a favorite part of the year for many anglers — ice fishing season.

  • Igloo Dining

    Igloo dining is one of the most unique winter attractions in the Adirondacks. While snowflakes dance in the sky, it is an idyllic setting for a romantic date night with your partner or any intimate gathering with friends and family.
