Bring Proper Attire

It can be tricky to prepare for a winter trip to the Adirondacks. The weather changes often and drastically, with some occasional days seeming like you are experiencing all four seasons.

If you plan on staying in one of our Saranac Lake Winter Vacation Rentals during your trip, be sure to bring the proper attire to enjoy nearby attractions and activities. Layering up is usually the best way to go during the winter to be prepared for all conditions. To round out your winter layers, be sure to bring a warm pair of winter boots (with traction if conditions will be icy), a few pairs of winter gloves, and maybe even a few hats.

Wet clothes, boots, gloves or hat can bring on cold discomfort fast and cause your pleasant winter outing to end quickly. Having extras on hand is great insurance for a comfortable and safe day outdoors. There are so many winter Adirondack wonders to enjoy in the Saranac Lake area. Make the most of your trip by being prepared!

Think About Activities

In addition to Saranac Lake’s scheduled winter events, be sure to check other local activities. Winters in Saranac Lake are very outdoor activity focused with many different outdoor pastimes to enjoy. Note that some may require additional planning and gear gathering before you go.

Opportunities include skating at the Saranac Lake Civic Center (inside or outside), downhill skiing at Mt. Pisgah Recreation Center or snowshoeing or xc skiing at Dewey Mountain Recreation Center. If you plan to participate in these activities, planning ahead and bringing your own gear (if you have it) can save extra rental expense.

Watch The Weather

Watching the weather in a mountain area like Saranac Lake is essential for a successful winter vacation. Keeping an eye on the forecast before you travel can help you know what to expect. It’s also a good idea to check out recent weather patterns before cementing final plans.

Knowing the weather can help you make good trip decisions ahead of time. You may choose to push your departure time forward or back to avoid icy or snowy road conditions getting here or back. Or you may choose to pack extra warm clothing if you know a cold snap is coming.

Adirondack weather can change quickly, so keeping an eye on the forecast is an important step to making the most of your trip. Also, being prepared to be flexible is essential as you travel throughout the Tri-Lakes and experience regional weather differences. Even traveling in a span of 5 miles, you might notice a big difference in precipitation, temperature or snow pack.

Lastly, the weather can affect different venues that you may want to explore. Some venues close in high wind or heavy snow conditions. Check websites of event venues on the morning you’d like to visit to make sure there aren’t any weather driven changes to hours, etc.
