Greetings from Lake Placid, New York!  Here you will find a handy guide to Lake Placid lodging, restaurants, current weather conditions and more!



In presenting the 1932 and 1980 Games, Lake Placid New York is one of only three communities in the world to have hosted two Winter Olympics. Only Innsbruck, Austria, and St. Moritz, Switzerland share this distinction. The Adirondack Park is one of the world's great wilderness frontiers. Forged by shifting glaciers more than 10,000 years ago, its landscape is one of soaring mountains, sweeping lakes, mighty rivers, and dense pine and hardwood forests abundant with wildlife.

At 6.1 million acres, it is America's largest wilderness park outside of Alaska. Spread over nearly a third of New York State, the Park covers more ground than Grand Canyon and Yellowstone national parks combined. Lake Placid is set in the heart of the mountains, in the northeastern part of the Park. Here you will find hundreds of miles of beautiful backcountry ski trails with cross country skiers poling their way from village to village, skiing and stopping along the way to sample delicious homecooked meals at many of the colorful Lake Placid hotels, restaurants, trailside inns and Bed and Breakfasts. For Alpine Skiers, the Adirondacks boast over 30 ski mountains including Gore and Whiteface Mountain offering the steepest vertical drop in the East.
