February Santanoni Winter Weekend
February 18 @ 10:00 am – February 20 @ 3:00 pm
Join us for a ski or snowshoe during Camp Santanoni’s annual Winter Weekends! On February 18-20, you’ll be able to go into the Gate Lodge and Main Lodge of the Camp, view displays about the Great Camp, and take short interpretive tours with Adirondack Architectural Heritage volunteers. The event provides a rare opportunity to go inside buildings and meet guides during the winter months. The 10-mile round trip on gently rolling terrain will take you past the Santanoni Farm and through the Forest Preserve on a wide, old road (no vehicle access). The Adirondack Interpretive Center (AIC) provides snowshoes for visitors to borrow at the gate lodge.
The Artist’s Studio, a stone building near the Main Lodge on the shores of Newcomb Lake, will be open as a warming hut from 10-4 on Saturday and Sunday and 10-3 on Monday. Enjoy free coffee, tea, or hot chocolate by the woodstove (bring a cup if you can, but we’ll have plenty available!). Visitors are also encouraged to take the half-mile trail that connects the Santanoni Road to the AIC’S 3.6-mile trail system. The center’s buildings will be open during the weekend. Hosted by Adirondack Architectural Heritage, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, the Town of Newcomb, and the Adirondack Interpretive Center.

NOTE: Winter conditions can change quickly in the backcountry. Be prepared with extra warm clothing and adequate supplies for your trip.
