PAUL SMITHS - On Saturday, Jan. 16, the Visitor Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths will once again host a variety of winter activities at its 10th Annual Chili Ski and Snowshoe Festival. The festival will take place between 10 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Paul Smiths VIC which is located 12 miles north of Saranac Lake on NYS Route 30.
The Chili Ski and Snowshoe Festival is an annual event packed with activity. Programs include snowshoe walks, winter camping and ice fishing demonstrations by Blue Line Sport Shop.
