Lake Placid Legacy Sites | Where Miracles Are Made!

Whether you’re looking for adrenaline rushing activities, leisurely scenic attractions, or anything in between, the Lake Placid Legacy Sites offer unique and unparalleled experiences for all ages and abilities.

Lake Placid has hosted two Winter Olympic Games – 1932 & 1980!  Since then, the Lake Placid Legacy Sites have evolved into four distinct venues which are world renowned for sports, events, and recreation: Olympic Center, Olympic Jumping Complex, Mt. Van Hoevenberg, and Whiteface Mountain.

Nestled within a 7-mile radius in the heart of New York State’s picturesque “High Peaks” of the Adirondacks, these storied venues continue to build upon their rich history and Olympic Legacy, serving as premier event hosts, coveted tourism destinations and four-season recreation meccas to hundreds of thousands of visitors annually, as well as training and development grounds to thousands of current and future competitive athletes alike.

Today, the Lake Placid Legacy Sites are in the final stages of preparation for the FISU 2023 Winter World University Games, spanning 11 days, 12 sports, and over 600 competing universities from around the world.
