Winter Activities at Mohonk

Escape to our magical winter wonderland
Every winter, the lake freezes over, the trees are covered with a dusting of snow, and the woods take on a serene and peaceful silence.

We offer a variety of outdoor winter activities for guests to enjoy. Each weekend during the winter months, the Mountain House becomes a hive of excitement with themed events ranging from a four-day music festival “Jazz on the Mountain” to “Winter Yoga Weekend.”

Browse the activities below and view our Activities Schedule for additional scheduled events.
