It's never too early to make your winter plans.

While a lot of us here in the Hudson Valley are getting in our last minute summer vacations, some of us are ready for the colder weather. Sweaters, gloves and hot cocoa are in our future.

If you're looking to get out of town for a bit this winter, there's some good news. Last week the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce announced that the ice castles will be back for 2022.

In a Facebook post the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce wrote:
