Cross country skiing in Lake Placid

Lake Placid in New York is one of those great destinations in North America that is amazing to visit no matter the season. With long warm summer days perfect for hiking and canoeing, springs that are full of life and with the most colourful fall seasons. It is also the perfect destination for the winter months, so much so that it has even been host to the Olympics twice, once in 1932 and again in 1980. It is also uniquely home to America’s first winter resort.

Ride the famous Toboggan Chute

There is so much to see and do in the winter months in Lake Placid, even though it can be a tad chilly outside at times. From skating on the lakes to riding the toboggan chute onto Mirror Lake, going dog sledding, snowshoeing, riding the luge track, riding a fat bike and other outdoor activities. There are also many places to warm up by a fire or you can even make your own s’mores at the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery. Have a day of shopping on main street or a day of recuperation at a spa, there are really so many options.
