Create Your Perfect Snow Day in Lake Placid with #PerfectSnowDayADK

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

      there is plenty of wine to be for sure to be part of a fireside chat……. actually there is even a wine trail not to far away called the Adirondack Coast…. stay perfect, Craig

  • Traveling Ted

    Except that the mountains are bigger, it looks a lot like northern Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota. Any place that has good Nordic skiing is a worthwhile place to go in my book.
