Ice Skating Shows

In the mid 1930's Hollywood made a series of movies featuring Sonja Henie: a 3-time Olympic Champion in the 1928, 1932 and 1936 Olympic Winter Games. These films featured big, lavish production numbers with multitudes of skaters performing synchronized shows. The popularity of these films waned during the 40's, but Americans were in love with skating! Henie went on to perform in traveling ice skating shows and entrenched them in American popular entertainment.

Today, Lake Placid continues to attract annual skating shows like the Stars on Ice tour as well as individual skating competitions. Many skaters spend the summer season here practicing and performing in the traditional Saturday Night Ice Shows.

Open Ice

Visitors are happy to find our rinks offer open skating times with skate rentals. Rather skate under the open sky? In the winter, as conditions allow, the village prepares a beautiful skating loop on Mirror Lake and several cleared natural rinks for skating and pick-up hockey games. Free and open to the public, Mirror Lake is always bustling with skaters of all ages and abilities.
