A happy youngster enjoys a Lake George winter drive with a smile on his face as his mother looks on from the back seat.One of the most distinguishing aspects of the Adirondack Mountain region is it remains an outdoor recreation area throughout the year. It may not seem like it now, but the expansive woodlands will soon surrender their chromatic displays of red, orange, and yellow to a gorgeous white blanket of snow. Embracing winter has become a way of life for those of us residing in the Northeast. As autumn slips away, the parks become less busy, the lakes freeze over, and the snow begins to pile. But don’t let the chilly climate dissuade you from enjoying the crunch of fresh snow or the elegance of a midday snowfall. Now is the time to dig out your long johns, ear muffs, and hand warmers to layer up and make the most of the Lake George winter with a smile.

Lake George Winter Vacations in the Adirondack Mountains

The Lodges at Cresthaven has an excellent off-season package, perfect for a Lake George winter vacation that runs January 3rd to April 9th of 2021. The abundance of solitude is one of the most endearing qualities of a winter retreat. Even though our beloved region maintains a healthy population, you’ll have more elbow room when visiting the local parks and other recreational areas. Other than locals and the occasional groups of skiers and snowmobilers, you won’t come across nearly as many people throughout winter. There’s something to be said about being the first to walk through a fresh layer of powder after a recent snowfall on a cold, sunny morning. To help you navigate through the gamut of Lake George winter activities, we came up with some ways to spend your time in the Adirondacks.
