Winter Sports


Make the most out of winter with these thrilling activities

If there’s one thing our region is famous for (and that Canadians know about all too well), it’s snow. When the winter chill sets in, Upstate NY is the top spot in the region for skiing, snowboarding, and more. Winter sports enthusiasts will find nearly 100 downhill and cross-country ski centers in New York State, including the highest vertical drop Laurentians [Rockies] – 366 meters! Whatever your skill level, enjoy breathtaking scenery and the thrill of the slopes.

Check out Visit Rochester for even more exciting winter fun!
