New York's Finger Lakes Region

Finger Lakes Winter activities.

Most people think of Snow Skiing as the number one winter activity.  We recommend  visiting Bristol Mountain Ski Resort in the Western Finger Lakes or  Greek Peak Ski Resort & Indoor Waterpark just south of Cortland.  They are both premier resorts with outstanding services to enjoy and beat the winter blues.

The Finger Lakes region has plenty of options for sledding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing or hiking all through some pretty spectacular countryside. Harriet Hollister Park, Mendon Ponds Park, the Keuka Lake Outlet trail or Taughannock Falls St. Park to name a  few. 

The Finger Lakes National Forest located between Seneca and Cayuga Lake offers designated snowmobiling & cross country trails as well.   Want a  unique experience?  Consider a guided Horseback ride at Painted Bar Stables, give them a call, they are located just outside of Watkins Glenn. 

We've got plenty of exciting indoors options too!  Shopping around the Finger Lakes?  We’ve got you covered!  And, amusements for kids of all ages can be found at Destiny USA, Syracuse featuring Wonderworks & Pole Position Raceway while your hitting the stores.

Make the Finger Lakes region of New York State your next getaway destination, and you won’t be disappointed.  No other region has such an abundance of natural beauty and amazing attractions in any season.  From the pristine lakes, gorgeous waterfalls, and magnificent parks to the charming villages, one-of-a-kind museums, wine trails and unique shopping opportunities .
