About this event

The Lake George Winterfest wristband gets you major discounts to area hotels and restaurants, along with a memorable winter experience that includes horse-drawn carriage rides, hot cocoa, and an activity of your choice!

Winterfest Wristbands: Your Ticket to Fun

If you're coming to the Lake George area this winter for skiing, Ice Castles, or the Winter Carnival, the Winterfest wristband is a no-brainer purchase.

A $20 Winterfest wristband gets you a 15% discount at participating hotels and a 10% discount at participating restaurants, as well as access to horse-drawn carriage rides and hot cocoa at Biscotti Brothers.

A $30 Winterfest wristband gets you all that, plus a winter activity of your choice, like sleigh riding, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing.

2022 - 2023 Winterfest Dates

Winterfest runs from December 27, 2022 to March 5, 2023. Exact dates and times will depend on the availability of the activity you choose, and will be solidified when you purchase your wristband. 

Winterfest Activities to Choose From

When you go to purchase the Winterfest wristband you'll be able to choose an activity and reserve a time slot. These activities did sell out last season, so nail down your activity as soon as possible!

Sleigh Ride

Enjoy a picture-postcard, bucket-list experience on this nearly hour-long afternoon ride through snowy forests and fields, hosted by Circle B Ranch. With sleigh bells ringing, you’ll travel to a gorgeous ridge with a view of the High Peaks followed by a stop offering hot chocolate and s'mores over an open fire! This is a truly unique Adirondack experience. (Available Fridays - Sundays)

Dog Sled Ride

What’s the best winter activity in the Adirondacks? Many would say dog sledding on Mirror Lake or throughout the Adirondack wilderness. These sled dogs are born and bred to run, enjoying every moment they are pulling the sled. Sit on a sled, cover yourself with flannel blankets, and get ready to take in the snow-covered Adirondacks vistas. (Available Fridays - Sundays)

Snow Tubing

This is a blast. West Mountain's tubing park has four-six upper lanes and six-eight lower lanes all accessible by the moving magic carpet ride. Simply hop on with your tube and let the moving magic carpet take you uphill to the starting point. Friday nights under the lights! (Available Fridays)

Axe Throwing

Come to Adirondacks and leave as an axe throwing expert!  It's fun, it's memorable, and it's easy. It's the real deal, and you'll have an hour-long session at this top-notch indoor axe throwing facility. There are multiple targets, with up to 4 people per target. (Flannel shirts and big beards not required!) Located 15 minutes from Lake George. (Available Most Days Except Mondays)

Cross-Country Skiing

Enjoy an afternoon (1pm - 4 pm) cross-country skiing experience, quietly sliding through the trails at Garnet Hill Lodge. The trails are well-maintained, the snow is all-natural, and equipment rentals are included. Customers must book at least 48 hours (2 days) prior to arrival. (Available Mondays - Fridays)


The afternoon snowshoeing experience takes place at Garnet Hill Lodge in North River. The property has 6 different routes that intertwine with their Nordic ski trails. (Available Mondays - Fridays)
