Let the snowy fun begin!
Saranac Lake, New York takes all of its seasons seriously, but winter is what it's all about. Hikers don snowshoes, ice fishermen and women ready their tip ups, and skiers head for the trails. Whether you're coming for a day or a week, to be active or relax, enjoy winter in the Adirondack Mountains.
Make every day decidedly adventurous
Don’t even think about staying inside when you’re here! There’s adventure and scenic beauty to be found everywhere! Take a hike from downtown or head to Lake Colby for a day of ice fishing. Fun, winter-only activities and events mix recreation with arts and culture. Don’t worry, there's authentically Adirondack food, too.
The highlight of our winter is Winter Carnival. Each carnival has a theme, unique Ice Palace, and 10 days of activities. You don't want to miss any of it, especially this year's theme of "Totally 80s." Let's celebrate!
A different kind of downtown
Creative eateries, galleries, and shops are all around, along with year-round live music. Whether you are looking for cultural and arts events or a world-class menu, you’ll find downtown Saranac Lake full of activity. This is a downtown rich in history and infused with nature in a way that only Saranac Lake can pull off.
