Gliding through some of the most beautiful terrain in the east, taking in the towering white pines, crisp, clean air, the calm of the Adirondack woods. That's what cross-country skiing here at Mt. Van Hoevenberg in Lake Placid is about.  The fact that it provides one of the best low-impact, total-body workouts you can find is a bonus: arms, legs, stomach and back all work in concert without pounding your joints. A day on our impeccably groomed cross-country trails will exhaust and replenish you all at once.  We offer cross-country skiing lessons - group and private - equipment rentals, a well-stocked sports shop and café. In short, everything you need to enjoy a day on our world-class cross-country ski trails in the Adirondack woods.  Save 20% with your Olympic Sites Passport!
