Re: Please help with New Years / Holiday Ski Trip
I enyoy going to Lake Placid because there is plenty of things to do if there is bad weather or there are non-skiers in your group. If you get tired of skiing be sure to visit the public tobaggon slide right on Mirror lake. You pay a reasonable fee for a tobaggon and walk up stairs and shoot down a slide on to the frozen lake. You can keep going up as long as you want. There are dog sled rides(more expensive) and Snowmobile rentals(even more expensive). Be sure to visit the Ski Jump and Bob Sled run outside of town. The public can ride the Bob Sled (2 at at time between a driver and brakeman). There is public Ice Skating on the outdoor Olympic oval in front of the high School with a rental shop accross the street. There is an indoor arena that has open skating(call first for the open times). I am aware of x-country skiing in the area but have never done it myself.
