From New York City, take a straight shot up the Hudson River and you’ll end up in North Creek The timeless allure and romantic charm of this ski town is cherished by many. As Gore Mountain is one of the North-East’s top locations for hitting the slopes, there is much to be enjoyed by snow bunnies and peace-seeking mini-breakers alike.
The town itself is small in size, enhancing its cute and cozy character. However, there are amenities abound so whether you’re searching for that morning cappuccino or a glass of Merlot to finish off your night, nothing falls short on the menu of options here. The food scene is buzzing, with offerings including an upscale wine bar, Bar Vino, the area’s favorite all-American eatery, Basil and Wick’s, and everything in-between.
North Creek is an active proponent of an active lifestyle - across all four seasons. Skiing - both downhill and cross country - and snowboarding are the winter activities of choice, as well as snow-tubing at the ski bowl, snowshoeing the abundance of winding trails and riding the “Polar Express” from the North Creek train station. During the summer, tubing down the Hudson river or hiking and mountain biking are popular choices. Ideally located just 30 minutes from Lake George and 45 to Saratoga Springs, its setting is optimal for exploring both New York’s Capital Region as well as the Southern Adirondacks.
Pack the skis and spend a week or call your home a cozy cabin. North Creek’s quintessential, small-town feel is warm and inviting, no matter what the season.
