Winter on Lake Champlain
Embrace winter and experience why the Adirondack Coast of Lake Champlain doesn't go into hibernation when the temperatures go down. Located on the east coast of New York's Adirondacks with views of the Green Mountains of Vermont, you'll find the combination of snowcapped mountains and frozen lakes provide the ideal venue for a snow-season adventure.
The region invites all to celebrate the crisp, snowy season as winter transforms our historic landscape into the perfect backdrop for winter activities.
Ice Skate and Ice Fish
The region's ponds and lakes invite both skaters and ice fishermen. Known for decades as home to seasonal ice shanty villages, Moriah's Bulwagga Bay is a must-fish for winter anglers.
Snowshoe and Cross Country Ski
This time of year, the valley's rolling fields and hiking trails welcome cross country skiers and snowshoers. Explore the extensive Champlain Area Trail network, with a variety of terrain for whatever the weather brings; accessible via microspikes, snowshoes and skis.
Professional licensed outdoor guides are available to lead the way, and showcase and interpret the natural wonders of winter on the Adirondack Coast!
Lake Champlain Regions Attractions
The region's attractions transform for the season too; try a horse-drawn sleigh ride or snowshoe trip through Ausable Chasm, or ski the trails at the Crown Point State Historic Site.
There are plenty of diversions inside, too. Explore the region's art galleries and enjoy an Adirondack Coast dining experience - from fine dining by a roaring fire to home baked bread at the local bakery.
For those who enjoy the region's cultural offerings and festive celebrations, there are a variety of winter events. Catch a play reading, an historic lecture, or a battle reenactment on snowshoes.
You can stay in the midst of it all in a cozy B&B or lodge. Be sure to check out the available lodging options!
