Winter recreation in the Lake George Area is always a fun and relaxing endeavor. Cross-country skiing on Adirondack trails is a great winter workout whether you’re a classic, touring, or skate skier.

Cross-country skiing is a pioneering activity of the Original Vacation. To this day cross-country skiing is alive and well in the Lake George Area, with plenty of ski trails crisscrossing the region. You can ski cross-country trails of all difficulty levels, including challenging climbs surrounded by snow covered trees and exhilarating descents through arena areas. You can bring your skis to local trailheads and enjoy the Adirondack Mountains in their snow covered majesty. Cross-country ski areas often include amenities such as ski rentals, lighted trails, and warming huts. A centuries-old pastime is here for you to enjoy in the Lake George Area.
