I’m a huge animal lover and I always have been. I'm that person that swerves my car so I don't hit a chipmunk. So I guess you could say I was excited to go to the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehabilitation Center in Wilmington for the first time. I don’t know why I hadn’t been here before, but I loved every minute of it, and I am so glad I got to spend a day there. If you haven’t been, you are...
Winter is creeping up on us, and it’s time to start gearing up to hit the slopes. But first, let me tell you about some pretty impressive, environmentally conscious improvements that have been made to Whiteface Mountain this year. Being nestled in such a picturesque area, of course it is important to keep the environment in mind. Whiteface Mountain has made some smart improvements to their...
As a 26-year-old who has lived in the Adirondacks her whole life, it seems surprising to many people that I just learned how to ski last year. But, I have been a figure skater since I was 7. It consumed a large portion of my life - which was fine by me because I love it, but I didn’t have time to do much else. Now that I’m not a competitive skater any more, I’ve acquired some time to try new...

Grab your family and your winter gear, and head to Whiteface Region to indulge in some Adirondack winter fun that everyone will enjoy! Village of Lights  You’ll be embraced in the Christmas spirit when you see the...
I love food. So much. My family actually openly makes fun of how much I eat, but it doesn’t even phase me anymore. And, it certainly doesn't stop me from finding great places to eat — which is exactly what I have found at the Wilderness Inn II Restaurant in Wilmington. I’m obsessed, and I’m not afraid to share it. This adorable, quaint little restaurant is well worth the 15-20 minute drive from...
Not all Halloween stories are spooky ghost tales that leave you wondering, what if? Some stories are merely a memory of what once was. The Land of Makebelieve in Upper Jay is now a ghost town destroyed by the forces of nature. Sadly nothing remains of what was once a child-size amusement park that left kids feeling like they had just jumped into a page of a favorite fairytale story. ...
The holidays are upon us, and it’s always a party at Whiteface Mountain. The skiing is great and so is the après ski atmosphere! With several dining options and tons of fun things going on, it’s easy to kick back and relax after a day on the slopes. Whiteface has received several awards from Ski Magazine readers including #2 Ski Resort in the Eastern US, #1 in Offhill Activities 2017, Top 10...
Welcome to Whiteface Mountain!The snow has begun to fall, and we’ve all got winter on our minds. Whiteface Mountain Ski Center is gearing up for what they hope to be a busy winter season, and their snowmaking skills are top-notch and ready to go! I had the opportunity to visit Whiteface Mountain before it opened for the season on Thanksgiving, and I talked with some of the staff about their...
Sometimes the mountain can be a pretty peculiar place. Whiteface Mountain is a local watering hole for those who might choose the path less traveled! Not sure what I mean? Let me show you. Every spring Whiteface Mountain holds their much-anticipated pond skimming contest. What’s pond skimming? The staff at the mountain makes a small pond at the bottom of the Mixing Bowl, you...
Finally… a Saturday off, my friends are free, and the weather looks great. It's time to head out onto the ice for some ice fishing! We’ve got our ice augers, tip-ups, bait, and we are ready to go. And, we're off! We decided to head to Franklin Falls, just outside of Wilmington, where I’ve always fished in the summer, but this was my first time ice fishing there. I measured...
Sugar House Creamery is an adorable farmstead creamery nestled in the Adirondacks. Their Brown Swiss Cows are getting ready to be released into the pasture after a long winter at this year's Green Grass Getdown, but don't think that's the only reason you should be visiting Sugar House Creamery.  1. The cheese  Oh my gosh. The cheese is so, so, so good. The Dutch Knuckle, Little...
Camping is without a doubt one of my favorite things to do on a summer weekend. And if you go to the right place, camping can involve a lot more than sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows, even though that’s one of my favorite parts. I recently went camping at the North Pole Campground and Inn in Wilmington. There are two sections of camping here. One is on the side of the road that...
Hiking in the Adirondacks can be an amazing experience, if you come prepared. But if you don’t, that amazing experience can turn into something much less enjoyable. Take it from me, an inexperienced hiker who hiked Catamount Mountain early fall without the proper gear and expectations. Catamount Mountain is on the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation's recommended hiking list, so I...
Something I love doing in the fall is simply taking a drive to view the foliage. For years one of my favorite fall drives has been through the Wilmington Notch. This winding road twists and turns along the Ausable River, connecting Lake Placid and Wilmington. Foliage arrived a bit late this year, but it certainly hasn’t lacked in its beauty. There are many places along the Wilmington Notch where...

Outdoor recreation  Wilmington is known for its mountain biking, but that’s not all there...
