Located in the heart of the wonderful Olympic vacation resort village of Lake Placid, New York, the Lake Placid Club Lodges is a short and picturesque drive to Whiteface Mountain.
The colors are becoming brillant and the mountains luscious in every direction. What a terrific time to enjoy all that Lake Placid and the Adirondack Mountains have to offer. There is an abundance of outdoor activities including biking, canoeing, camping, fishing, hiking, and of course, shopping. But what sets Lake Placid apart is its' Winter Olympic heritage. Visitors enjoy public skating in the Olympic Center,visiting the Olympic Museum and Ski Jumping complex, partaking in summer and fall bobsledding, and mountain biking. The vista from the peak of Whiteface Mountain is amazing and can be easily reached by riding the Cloudsplitter gondola or driving the eight-mile Veterans Memorial Highway to the summit. The region also boasts some of the best fall golf in upstate New York. Check out our Great Golf pages for descriptions of some of the finer courses in the area.
Whiteface Mountain, which boasts the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies, was recently given a new title: No. 1 ski resort in the eastern United States and second overall in eastern North America. An independent survey of 7,000 SKI Magazine readers put the Olympic mountain back on top for the first time since 2003.
Whiteface, which has 283 skiable acres and 86 trails, also received high marks for its Apres-ski, ranking No. 1 in “Off-Hill Activities” for the 18th year in a row. The Olympic Regional Development Authority spokesman Jon Lundin pointed to the nearby Olympic venues, the wide variety of restaurants and special events in the area.
“It’s the overall experience and the authenticity of Lake Placid, Whiteface and Wilmington that make it so unique,” Lundin said. “People just get in the spirit of things. They say they want to ski an Olympic mountain so they come to Whiteface.”
