New Skate Lake Colby Event

SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee has introduced a new event called Skate Lake Colby. The event will be held on Sunday, February 3 at the Lake Colby beach. It will offer ice skating paths and a fat bike trail. Adirondack Health is the official sponsor for the event.

From 12:00-5:00 p.m. the public is welcome to bring their own ice skates or try out other ice sports like kicksleds, Nordic skates and fat bikes, courtesy of Human Power Planet Earth (77 Main Street).

From 6:00-8:00 p.m. the public is welcome to bring their own ice skates, headlamps or flashlights to skate the path at night.

John Dimon, owner of Human Power Planet Earth, approached the carnival committee about his idea for the event in December. "I thought it would be a great addition to carnival, and also support grassroots efforts to develop a skate path on Lake Colby in the future that would ideally last all winter. We hope people will see the great potential of recreational enjoyment for locals and visitors so that we can keep the path open for ice sport enthusiasts and make Saranac Lake an ice sporting destination," said John Dimon.
