Not everyone can say the Olympics took place in their own backyard. Today, you can tour many of the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Sites and even take a luge or bobsled ride, no matter the season! Visitors are often struck by the 70- and 90-meter ski jumps towering in the sky alongside the High Peaks. An elevator ride will take you to the top of the jumps, providing a birds eye view of the Adirondack region. The legacy of the 1980 Games has been preserved, and its heritage upheld, to ensure continued public enjoyment of the Olympic venues.
The Olympic Sites Passport is perfect for folks planning a visit to the area, giving you access to every one of the Lake Placid Olympic Sites, including the Olympic Museum! The passport is available for purchase online and in person at all of the Olympic venues and the ORDA (Olympic Regional Development Authority) Store on Main Street.
Guests should note that while Whiteface Mountain and the Olympic Center will be open, the elevator at the Olympic Jumping Complex and the Bobsled Experience at the Olympic Sports Complex will be closed for the summer 2019 season to allow for some exciting new additions! Check with the venues for weekly updates and the events schedule.
