From the idyllic views of Whiteface Mountain to the historic halls of The Olympic Center, the Lake Placid Legacy Sites strike an unusual but remarkable balance.
What sets Lake Placid apart? The gravity of the place. When you walk into the Herb Brooks Arena- the site of 1980’s Miracle on Ice- you can almost feel the crowd buzzing. When you shoot down the bobsled, luge, & skeleton track at the Olympic Sports Complex, you understand the rush that countless Olympians before felt doing the same. Meticulous effort has gone into preserving the legacy and magic of these facilities, and it shows.
Then there’s the skiing & snowboarding experience at Whiteface Mountain. The cross-country skiing and biathlon at Mt. Van Hovenberg. The new high-speed gondola and elevator ride at the Olympic Jumping Complex.
All of these pieces together, with one foot in the future and one foot rooted in the past, make the Lake Placid Legacy Sites a five-sided experience that is totally unforgettable and unique. It’s more than just a mountain town. It’s Lake Placid.
