The Lake George Area transforms into a lively winter escape as soon as the snowflakes start to fly. Lake George bustles with winter events, such as the Lake George Winter Carnival, a frozen fiesta celebrating all things snow and ice. The Lake George Area’s ski centers start blowing snow as soon as the cold weather sets in, guaranteeing every trail is covered with powder and ready for skiing. Other recreation in the winter include ice skating on the pond at Crandall Park, ice fishing for perch and lake trout on frozen Lake George, and cross-country skiing to extensive views on forested hiking trails. For a wintertime getaway brimming with full-faced smiles and frozen fun, take a trip to the Lake George Area.
