Winter is an exciting time in the Finger Lakes! Bristol Mountain Ski Resort comes alive and offers more than 30 trails for skiers and snowboarders as well as boasting the highest vertical between the Rockies and the Adirondacks, 1200 feet. Other winter sports such as snow shoeing at Ganondagan, ice fishing on Canandaigua Lake and cross country skiing at Bristol Harbour Resort offer a great outdoor experience in the Finger Lakes.

As it gets colder and colder, local restaurants like Warfield's start serving up comfort food. Wineries like Belhurst and Billsboro offer a warm, welcoming environment to escape the elements and to try some of the region’s best wines, including world-famous ice wine at Casa Larga Vineyards.

The season also offers a great opportunity to finish off a long day of skiing with a cooking class at the New York Wine and Culinary Center or a spa treatment at Life Path Spa. End your days with a cozy stay at one of the Canandaigua Lake Area Bed and Breakfasts or The Inn on the Lake. This is a seasonal FAM trip and is available during the winter months only (January-March).
