We've been hearing a lot about how coronavirus has hurt businesses in the area. However, there are some experiencing an uptick because of it.

West Mountain in Queensbury has plenty of space for social distancing. Expanded summer activities have been much more successful than expected.


General Manager Sara Montgomery says you don't have to be a thrill seeker. They just started offering a mountain top picnic package if taking in the mountain scenery is more your speed.

A new summer camp offering for the younger set was so popular they had to extend it.

Montgomery knows they're not the only game in town, but with so many things that have been closed, canceled, or postponed, parents were thrilled to see something that wasn't.

Their big business comes in winter. They know it will likely take a little more to pull off.

See some of the big activities in action, by watching the video of Jerry Gretzinger's story.
