Sidetracks: Lake Placid Olympic Sports Center

Feed your need for speed off the slopes with a bobsled ride down Lake Placid’s World Cup track.

It should come as no surprise that skiers have a thing for speed. So it’s no wonder that they sign their waivers, wait in long lines, climb into five-person bobsleds manned by professional drivers and brakemen and shoot down the World Cup track at upstate New York’s Lake Placid Olympic Sports Center. Twisting, icy and fast,
the steel-reinforced concrete halfpipe delivers a short but stomach-lurching thrill—and is well worth an afternoon off the slopes of nearby Whiteface.

Whiteface has it all: the mountain (3,216 vertical feet), a village (Lake Placid, an oasis of civilization amid the wilds of the Adirondacks) and on top of it all, a rich Olympic heritage.

2001 Number 4 Resort in the East: Whiteface, N.Y.

Travel

The best thing about Whiteface is the worst thing about Whiteface: no slopeside condos, no base village, just trees. That, of course, means uncluttered scenery-and a 10-mile commute to nearby Lake Placid for lodging.
