LAKE PLACID, NY – The Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) urges winter sports enthusiasts to dust off their cross-country skis and snowshoes and head for the Adirondack High Peaks.
More than 6 inches of new snow fell Wednesday night at ADK’s Heart Lake property near Lake Placid, and more snow was falling on Friday, creating great conditions for winter fun.
“Winter is definitely here in the High Peaks,” said Ryan Doyle, ADK’s outdoor leadership coordinator. “If you’ve been waiting all winter to get outside and play in the snow, now is your chance.”
ADK offers a variety of winter recreation programs for all ages and skill levels, from beginner snowshoe and cross-country skiing workshops to winter hikes up trailless high peaks. All ADK outdoor workshops are conducted by our experienced, highly trained staff, who can help you develop the confidence and skills you’ll need for safe and rewarding winter adventures in the backcountry.
If you are looking for a chance to get outdoors with the kids or grandkids, join ADK for Family Snowshoe Day on Saturday, March 3. Spend the day snowshoeing on the beautiful trails at our Heart Lake property while learning about natural history and winter ecology. ADK will provide the snowshoes and instruction. Kids under 6 are free.
