Plan Out Your Adirondack Winter!

C'mon, everyone! Get ready for some winter fun!
(And maybe cross a few gift purchases off your list!)

When I woke up this morning, it was 4 degrees. There's also a nice 2-inch layer of fresh snow on the ground.

So...There might still be Thanksgiving turkey in the fridge but winter is a-comin' and that means....SNOW SEASON IN THE ADIRONDACKS!

Are YOU ready?

Winter Events

 

 

This year, I made a resolution to stay home more. 

Well, that went out the window fast! There are just way too many great events going on to sit at home and miss out. There is a little something for everyone. I can head out with a few of my friends, have a "day date" with my husband, or head out with the family to one of the many awesome family-friendly events. Why would I want to stay in and miss out!? Here are some upcoming not-to-miss events!

Getting Oak Mountain Winter Ready

For most people, skiing isn't something that crosses their minds until the temperatures drop or those first few snowflakes fly. At Oak Mountain, skiing is a year-round thought. From prepping the mountain to snow making, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes to get Oak Mountain ready for their winter season.

Meet the Faces of Ski Season

Behind the ADK Ski Scene

For those who love winter sports, this "snow drought" is starting to make us a little antsy. I feel like a child waiting for Santa, counting down the days until Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, it isn't as easy as simply pinpointing a date and time — but wouldn't that be nice if it was?!

2 Facilities, 2 Disciplines, 1 Awesome Ski Season

Let the Countdown Begin!

All I can say right now is WOW! Is it really the middle of November already? It seems like the high water and awesome rapids of spring were here just yesterday. In a blink of an eye summer and fall are behind us and now we are quickly moving full steam ahead to winter, or as I look at it - ski season! While part of me wants to be nostalgic about all of the fun that came along with the seasons past, I much rather reconnect with my winter friends as we get ready to hit the fresh powder on the trails and slopes.

Ski Date for 2

When the stars align

As parents of three, it is rare that my husband and I have a full day to ourselves. Yes, we do try to sneak away for the occasional "date night," but a full day to ourselves comes few and far between.

On the rare occasion that we do find ourselves kid-free for a few hours, we usually end up doing thrilling tasks like Christmas shopping, birthday shopping, attending a wedding, you get the picture... not the most exciting stuff.

5 Tips (x2) For Planning Your NY Ski Trip

Bring on the Powder!

The first snowflakes of the season are behind us; we've reorganized the garage (packing away the camping gear in exchange for the snowboards, skis, boots and poles), and now we are getting antsy to hit the slopes. Don't let the waiting game slow you down this winter... start planning your family ski trip to the Adirondacks now, allowing you more time to enjoy the mountains later. Who knows, with a little research this might be the year that you discover a mountain or two that could be your new favorite!
