November heralds the beginning of winter in the Adirondack Mountains of Northern New York, and everyone – from alpine skiers and boarders, to families looking for a quick winter retreat, is gearing up for snow.

Less than two hours south of Montreal and four hours southeast of Ottawa, New York’s premier ski destination awaits. Whiteface Mountain’s hometown of Wilmington offers lodging deals and a festive winter atmosphere all season long. Nearby, the village of Lake Placid offers boutique shopping, ice-skating and fine dining at Adirondack restaurants.
