Snowmobiling in the Ticonderoga and Southern Champlain Valley region is a favorite winter pastime of residents and visitors alike. It’s no secret that some of the best snowmobiling in the country is found in and around the Adirondacks of upstate NY.
Come and ride the pristine powders through the quaint and historic towns in and around Ticonderoga. Experience the thrills of riding hundreds of miles of groomed and backcountry trails through the public and private lands of the Adirondack Trail System. This system runs through Port Henry, Minerva, Schroon Lake, and Saranac Lake NY. Put your sled on ice! Once they’ve frozen over, there is nothing quite like the thrill of flying wide open on the frozen waters of Lake Champlain and Lake George.
