Lake Placid Toboggan Chute

The rumors are true! The Toboggan Chute received a makeover, and now it's open for business!

Open only in the winter, this 30-foot high structure sends toboggans down an ice-covered chute onto frozen Mirror Lake. Depending on weather conditions, toboggans can travel more than 1,000 feet once they reach the frozen lake surface. To ensure the safety of riders, only one sled is sent down at a time.

The Toboggan generally opens in December or January and closes in February or March depending on ice conditions. Hours vary depending on weather conditions. Contact the Lake Placid Visitors Center for more information at (518) 523-2445.

The Toboggan Chute is closed for the 2018 season.
