There is a lot you can do in the Winter in Central New York. You and your family can snowshoe, cross country or downhill ski, snow mobile, bobsled on the same track as the Olympic lugers or pretend you're in an Alaskan Iditarod.

You can go for a ride in a dog sled.  Check out Mike Arnold dog sled rides by Mirror Lake, pay and ride. There is a heads up as they do not take reservations.

Frequently, people ask about the safety of the lake for this kind of activity. The drivers always check the thickness of the ice on the lake to ensure the safety of their dogs as well as their passengers.

You'll have a great time and get out of the house for something really different.
