Description: Winter Jam NYC is a FREE annual winter sports festival that encourages New Yorkers to get out and enjoy the outdoors in the winter. Our partners from Gore Mountain will be blowing lots of fresh snow, so bring your snow gear! Visitors will have the opportunity to try out winter sports on the Lake Placid Snow Field like cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skiing and snowboarding, right in the heart of NYC. More experienced riders can show off their skills by signing up for the Red Bull MetroRail, an open snowboard and ski rail jam. Or, take a break from the cold and enjoy some apres-ski snacks in the Pride of New York Winter Market or the Unreal Candy Unjunked spectator area. The first time Doggie Snow Zone will feature a snow park with agility equipment for your pooch, an 'Ask the Expert' booth featuring canine behavioralists and a celebrity dog stylist, a doggie treat bar, and more! Winter Jam NYC 2013 is presented by the NYC Parks Department, I Love NY, and Lake Placid and sponsored by Red Bull, REI, Mountain Creek, Unreal Brands, Cabot Cheese, Unleashed by Petco, Radio Disney, L Magazine, and DNAinfo.
