The Adirondacks offer some of the best skiing in New York State. Both Whiteface and Gore Mountain provide skiing/riding terrain for all ages and abilities. Whiteface also boasts the highest vertical drop in the East at 3,430 feet.



With over 2,000 miles of trails, the 6 million acre Adirondack Park provides some great hiking and climbing opportunities. For more details and a resource for hiking in the ADKs, check out the Adirondack Mountain Club.



There are several courses located throughout each region of the park. Enjoy the backdrop of the Adirondack Mountains as you tee off!



There are many trails, paths, and routes available for biking. Enjoy the extraordinary landscape; whether it’s on a windy back road or a dirt trail in the deep wilderness. There are also several annual events to take part in including the Black Fly Challenge and Whiteface Uphill Bike Race.

Whitewater RaftingWhitewater Rafting the Hudson

On April 20th, we got a group together and went rafting on the Hudson River with Beaver Brook Outfitters. We hit the river just at the right time to get some great rapids following some significant rainfall from the night before.

Spring Skiing at Whiteface

On April 6th, we spent the day on the slopes of Whiteface. The sun was shining and the snow coverage was still great! The mountain will continue to open up on the weekends, weather permitting.
