Snow Covered Mountain

Winter Wonderland Activities

The Adirondack Mountains and Saranac Lake region are known as quintessential winter destinations in Upstate New York. There's no shortage of winter wonderland activities! As a member of the community, Saranac Waterfront Lodge offers access to an array of snow and ice activities, led by local guides. Whether your idea of winter fun in Saranac Lake includes an ice-climbing adventure, a journey through the mountains on a snow mobile, or strolling the holiday shops in downtown Saranac Lake and Lake Placid - our hotel makes it easy to do it all.

Skiing & Snowboarding

A quick drive from Saranac Waterfront Lodge is Whiteface - the most challenging & diverse local ski resort that has over 90 trails of groomers, parks, glades, and slides. If you're a beginner and looking for more gentle slops the whole family can enjoy Mt. Pisgah - it's right in Saranac Lake, and even offers tubing.

Ice Skating

Indoor & Outdoor Ice Skating

Wether you want to play broom-ball on Lake Colby, or free skate inside in an Olympic rink in Lake Placid, we have it all! Plan your next family hockey tournament on Mirror Lake or grab a pair of rentals and skate the Olympic Speed Skating Oval this winter. Don't forget to check the schedule for the Stars on Ice figure skating shows!
