Skiing in the Adirondacks

Let’s start by getting the winter cliches out of the way — yes, the Adirondacks is a winter wonderland and you’ll find plenty to cozy up to here, but you’ll also find all of the snow-covered excitement you can handle! This is mountain country, so a lot of visitors bundle up and hit the slopes. The only tough part is picking the right mountain. The greatest vertical drop in the East awaits at Whiteface Mountain, families flock to Titus Mountain in Malone, Mount Pisgah in Saranac Lake, Big Tupper in Tupper Lake, and Oak Mountain in Speculator, while visitors to Gore Mountain love the variety there.
