For those of us know Schroon and our surrounding sister towns, we are all blessed and lucky enough to know what this slice of the ‘Dacks means to us: in all seasons. So we were tickled pink when we read about freelance writer Anne Shabert’s Schroon Lake Winter ritual: escaping the rat race and retreating here, enjoying the amazing winter-time offerings. It’s now a well established family tradition for Anne:
"Every family has a Christmas tradition, but have you ever wondered how your tradition began?When I was in my early twenties, my family began a Christmas tradition. Christmas was always so very busy for all of us that one Christmas we decided to go to a retreat center in Schroon Lake in the Adirondack Mountains in New York State for the week after Christmas. We left our New Jersey home the day after Christmas and returned right after New Year’s Day. That first Christmas was so enjoyable, and renewing and restful, that spending the week in Schroon Lake between Christmas and New Year’s quickly became a family Christmas tradition".
