Winter Snow Sports

bristol-harbour-snowga-canandaigua-snow-shoeingWhen the snow flies in the Finger Lakes, the fun has just begun. Ontario County has so many cool places where winter is wonderful. We have a full roster of outdoor and indoor winter sports and recreation activities.

Downhill skiers and snowboarders can head to Bristol Mountain Winter Resort, the only 1,200-foot vertical rise between the Rockies and the Adirondacks.  

Glide through fields and forests on cross-country skis at Cumming Nature Center near Naples, Bristol Harbour Resort or at Bristol Mountain's Nordic Center.


Show off those snowshoes at Harriet Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area in Honeoye, Kashong Conservation Area in Geneva, on the nature trails at Ganondagan State Historic Site or past sleepy snow-covered farmlands on the Ontario Pathways.

Take the kids (including your inner child) and toboggan to Dryer Road Park in Victor or Mertensia Park in Farmington for an afternoon of sledding.

Do you travel with your snowmobile? Two local clubs based in Honeoye and Canandaigua have trail maps on their websites.
