Lake Placid Toboggan Chute

  • Mirror Lake, Lake Placid

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. No reservations are necessary.

The schedule is subject to change based on the weather.


Prices are:

  • $20 for adults
  • $10 for students
  • Cash or card accepted

Use of the toboggan is included in all prices. Durable pants are recommended.
