As Schroon Lakers know  -- our fair hamlet and its economy relies on several seasons --  which attracts visitors to our slice of paradise. And right now we are smack is in the middle of two seasons, which will bring a few more dollars into our community.

Both the Ice Fishing  and Snowmobile seasons are in full swing.

This past weekend we ran into sledders at Stewarts  (filling up their  gas containers) at the Fish and Game Club Bar and at Witherbee’s Carriage House, where we enjoyed a kick ass burger!
Witherbee’s, which is right on a snowmobile trail, has new earlier opening hours for the sledding crews.

And one ingenious invention that owner Bill Christian has come up with -- what we are calling the “Helmut Hutch” – is a place where sledders can place their helmets while they refuel.

We love it! Got Snowmobile or Ice Fishing news to share?  Let us know in our comments section or send us photos at
