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 park provides some great hiking and climbing opportunities. For more details and a resource for hiking in the Adirondack Mountains, check out the Adirondack Mountain Club.
There are several small ponds and lakes throughout the Adirondacks, which provide endless opportunities for canoeing and kayaking. Check out the list of places we frequently visit to paddle.
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.

On April 19th, we got a group together and went rafting on the Hudson River with Wild Waters. As always, the water was very cold, but worth it for the stronger rapids in the spring.
This past summer we embarked on our latest big adventure, this time hiking 105 miles between France, Italy, and Switzerland.
