Adirondack Snowshoe Fest

SARANAC LAKE, NY - Two years ago, Saranac Lake hosted the 2017 World Snowshoe Championships, with it’s fun Shoe-Be-Do 5K and world class races. This Adirondack village continues to build on this international experience by hosting it’s 2nd snowshoe weekend, dubbed the Adirondack Snowshoe Fest, set for February 23 and 24, 2019.
