LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Winter has been hard to hold onto in the North Country this year. Intermittent warm temperatures have caused problems for Ice Castles, attempting to build a palace of icy fun at Charles R. Wood Park for the second year running.
On Friday morning, though, you wouldn’t know it. Work had paused at Ice Castles in order to let the weather pass, with overnight freezing rain turning gradually to soft snow. Lake George was forecast to get as much as four inches, with the same reaching further north to and past Warrensburg and North Creek. In Glens Falls, 1-2 inches were expected.
An on-track winter would be welcome, but at this point can’t reverse some delays. Ice Castles, originally planned to open in later January, was announced to be opening up to visitors in February, Warren County said this week.
