Cross-Country Skiing in Lake Placid, NY

January 14 - January 17

(Bus Trip – Martin Luther King Weekend)

Members, non-members, couples, singles, people of all ages: we’re going NORTH for a fun-filled winter weekend with lodging at the High Peaks Resort (the North Woods Hotel, now called the Grand Adirondack Hotel, was flooded due to a water main break in town and will not be open until March).  High Peaks has a heated indoor pool and access to a hot tub. You must be vaccinated to attend.
Within a short walk of our hotel are:
• The Olympic Center (Herb Brooks Arena) with rental ice skates
• U.S. Olympic Museum
• Miles of trails to hike or snowshoe
• Dog sledding on the frozen lake
• A public ice rink
• Many restaurants and shops
Nearby but out of the town are:
• Mt. Van Hoevenberg, Olympic-class cross-country ski area
• Cascade cross-country ski center, with a lovely lodge, great food and brews
• Whiteface Mountain downhill ski area
• High Falls Gorge
On the trip you’ll learn about and see how global warming is affecting the winter sports industry.

Local transportation: Our bus takes people to Mt. Van Hoevenberg or Cascade each day. Free Lake Placid Village Shuttles run to and from Whiteface Mountain (a twenty-minute ride) during the day from less than a block from the hotel.
