Viewing all the playful snow images after Jonas, the 2016 blizzard that hit the east coast of the states, I realized I do miss winter, especially the snow. Yes, I’ll admit it. Now, in Florida (enjoying the sunshine state) I realize I’ll need to schedule winter holiday travel not just to escape cooler climates, but also head north and appreciate the adventurous snow day activities and the perfect snow day.
When I think of a place I’d like to spend a winter holiday – Lake Placid, New York comes to mind.
Nestled in the Adirondacks, Lake Placid, is an all year destination but it always holds a special place in my heart during the winter. The destination is no stranger to winter activities, especially competitive sport, as it did host the Winter Olympics in 1932 and 1980, but its charm today goes much deeper. Personally, I only scratched the surface (which did include time on ice skates) on my first winter visit to Lake Placid, but after that weekend I knew instantly I’d love to return. And now you (and your family or friends) can experience it too thanks to LakePlacid.com
Lake Placid believes the destination offers the perfect snow day for travelers and now you can create one and then also win it. Yes, one winner will be able to take three others for three nights (3 nights 4 people) to experience the perfect snow holiday, and their perfect snow day in Lake Placid.
For everything you need to know see the enter to win details, but in summary, you need to just create a short video (use your smart phone even) and upload the video to YouTube. Your video must highlight the activities you want to include in your perfect snow day.
So, what do you put in the video? A list of sample ideas and activities exist on the LakePlacid website to consider and select from, but feel free and be creative and add your own. So, create your own perfect snow day.
When complete, upload your video and title it “Hey Lake Placid, Here is My Perfect Snow Day.” Share it socially with the hashtag #PerfectSnowDayADK. The top ten videos will be selected on February 28th and then a voting period for the public will follow.
Looking for a video sample, sure – see Brooke’s video here.
All the contest details can be found at LakePlacid.com. Good Luck.
Stay Adventurous, Craig.
