A Winter Wonderland Photo Journey through the Adirondacks

One of the most beautiful corners of the country, the Adirondacks beckons outdoor travelers every season of the year. Come winter though, you won’t find a better destination on the East Coast to experience world-class winter activities; ski the renowned Whiteface Mountain or dogsled across Mirror Lake. Accommodations range from charming, boutique inns to 5-star luxury resorts and everything in between so there is certainly something for everyone. The food scene has particularly taken off in recent years, as many restaurants are sourcing fresh ingredients from local Upstate farms. Drive or take the train from NYC, and you’ll find yourself worlds away from your daily routine and breathing the crisp, fresh Adirondacks air. Follow along as we take you on a winter photo journey through one of our favorite destinations in the US:
