The Empire State Winter Games encompasses every seasonal sport imaginable. Along with alpine skiing, bobsledding, and figure skating, there’s also snowboard cross, hockey (men’s and women’s), luge, and snowshoeing. Spectators will also love strolling through the Athlete Village and warm-up with a steaming cup of hot chocolate and s’mores. For fun try your hand at Giant Jenga or Snowball Sling-Shot. Entry to this event is very affordable – attendance is free, although some venues may require a small entrance fee.
