In Lake Placid, we like to kick it up a notch. Sledding hills can be much larger than the usual backyard hill, and what other town maintains its own toboggan chute — sending riders hurtling across the frozen lake?  Bring your own sled or purchase one in a store on Main Street in downtown Lake Placid. There are hills a plenty here.

Enjoy golf course scenery and winter fun.
