When your family is arguing whether to go to a ski resort or a coastal beach resort, check out our No. 1 pick. Hope Lake Lodge gives you the best of both seasons – ski down the slopes of Greek Peak Mountain, then shed some layers and relax in the 84-degree weather of Cascades Indoor Waterpark.
While offering over 30 trails of downhill skiing, hiking trails and all the activities on adjacent Hope Lake, the spectacular indoor waterpark at Hope Lake Lodge takes the cake. As the first indoor waterpark in the New York Finger Lakes region, Cascade Indoor Waterpark contains 150,000 gallons of water, spread out across 41,000 sq. ft. The smaller kids will love Little Bear Falls, featuring 6-in. to 12-in. water depth, air and water bubbler features, a tiny tot's swing and a kid-sized slide. Older kids will love the rush of two 100-ft. long, two-story high slides. The Whitewater Wave Pool, a year-round outdoor heated pool and an onsite café complete this exhilarating waterpark!
