Enjoying the last bit of winter
Joell Stetson - Marketing Director
The Adirondacks have been teased with some spring temperatures, but there’s still time to get out and take part in winter activities. Skiing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing are still in full swing. Looking for something a little more relaxing? Pamper yourself at Adirondack Foot Sanctuary or take some time to visit the local shops.
Know Before You Go
Practical advice for the winter traveler
brought to you by ROOST
Things are changing all the time. Be sure that you plan ahead to see if the places you are going are open or have different hours of operation. Some places may require online reservations.
WATCH THE WEATHER. The weather can change quickly in the mountains and that means that a nice sunny day can turn with little notice. Always check the forecast, but keep an eye out for changing conditions. Make sure you pack for any kind of weather.
HAVE A PLAN B. It’s possible that when you get to your destination there will be a lot of other people there. Be sure to have a backup p[lan to reduce crowding. Maybe try a new restaurant or trail instead!
BRING A MASK. For the safety of our communities and our guests, you are expected to follow all NYS guidelines including wearing a mask.
LEAVE NO TRACE. Help us keep the Adirondacks beautiful. Take the pledge and show your love for the ADKs!
Become a winter 9'er
The 9er’s mission is to attract seasoned hikers as well as those who are new to hitting the trails, offering a chance to explore some of the Lake Placid region’s smaller peaks, all of which can be conquered in a morning or afternoon. The peaks were selected to offer some of Lake Placid’s most breath taking views, without taking the 4000+ ft climb that the popular 46 Adirondack high peaks require tackling. The 9’er offers a true Lake Placid experience, including unbeatable views of the surrounding high peaks and the popular Whiteface Mountain, a chance to scale an ADK fire tower, and a trip to the historic Adirondack Loj.
