When winter comes, come to where the world comes!

The Winter Olympics have come to our area not once but twice - in 1932 and 1980.

Lake Placid has been rated the top winter resort village in North America. And throughout our area, you will find spectacular sites for Adirondack skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling, not to forget skating, ice fishing and just having fun!

And when you're done playing in the snow and ice and taking in the majestic Adirondacks in the full glory of winter, you can visit the Lake Placid Olympic venues to witness world class competitions in such sports as ski jumping, bobsled, luge, figure skating, biathlon and more.

But wait! Lake Placid and the Adirondacks are just the first part of the story, with Vermont skiing just across the lake and the ski resorts of Quebec just up the road. Indeed, the mountain at Stowe can be seen from Plattsburgh--all adding up to variety and choice unlike anyplace else in the world.
