Lake Placid is a gorgeous mountain village, located in the Adirondack Park, known best probably for being the home of the famous Miracle on Ice victory against the USSR at the 1980 winter Olympics. However, long before the 1980 winter games it was a favorite winter getaway for the rich and famous, due in part to Melvil Dewey, who helped to establish the first luxury resort in the area.
Even if sports aren’t your thing, Lake Placid offers a great place to get away and relax. And you could win a trip for two!
If you win, you’ll stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites, located on the banks of Mirror Lake, just next to the Olympic Complex. You’ll enjoy a dinner for two at Pan Dolce where you can savor a fantastic gourmet meal in a relaxed, casual atmosphere.
In addition you’ll win a scenic flight with us! We will give you a really unique view of Lake Placid that you’ll get from no one else. Choose from our three different scene tours which will take you over the high peaks and return over the Olympic Ski Jumps, over the Olympic Village, the Olympic Arena, the Bobsled and Luge runs and the Ski Jumps, or take in the beautiful lakes by flying over all the lakes surrounding the Tri Lakes area. No matter which tour you choose you’ll love the stunning views and the unforgettable experience.
After you’ve flown with us you can head over to the Olympic Complex with your Olympic Sites Passport . You’ll be able to visit the Miracle on Ice arena and learn about one of the greatest moments in hockey – if not sports – history. Tour the museum and learn little known facts about the Olympic Games and see tons of cool memorabilia. Visit Whiteface and take a gondola ride to the top for a great view! See the ski jumps and take an elevator to the top to see just how high up they really are! At the Sports Complex you can even take a ride on the bobsled track!
If the Olympic Sites don’t interest you, take a climb up the high peaks with Cloudsplitter Mountain Guides. Lake Placid’s 46 Peaks are often a goal of many hikers, though some require great technical skill to climb and do not have marked paths to the top. What better way to climb them than with professional guide at your side?
