GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Chances are, you’ve got some stuff going on this weekend, but there could be room for one more thing. Christmas Day is Saturday, Dec. 25, and the village of Lake George has lights on for the holidays. It’s also opening day Friday at West Mountain, for anyone who wants to get in some skiing, snowboarding or tubing. Maybe Santa Claus has a new set of skis on the way!

The holiday weekend isn’t all sunshine and white snow, unfortunately. Temperatures hang in the 30s through the weekend, with a wintery mix leading to rain on Christmas Day as the temperature sneaks up above freezing. Bundle up, though; it’ll be back down into the 20s by night.
