Olympic Center Tour

Olympic Center Tour

The Olympic Center, located right on Lake Placid's Main Street, was the site of some of the greatest, most memorable moments in Winter Sports history. It was here that Eric Heiden, in his gold, suit streaked to five speedskating victories. It was here that the United States Hockey team won its Miracle on Ice game against the Soviet Union. But the Olympic Center is no relic, no crumbling artifact. It continues to host major international competitions. It remains a mecca to winter athletes not just because of its storied past, but because it is a world-class athletic facility. It's also a business office, a museum, a conference center, a cultural reference point. Take a guided tour and learn all about the building's history, its current role and its future. Learn about the people who brought the Olympics to Lake Placid and what it was like for this tiny mountain village to host the world. Our guides were there in 1980, working with hundreds of others to pull it off. They'll tell you all about it, sharing personal memories and insights with you that you're not going to find in a book or on a website. Walk the halls of the Olympic Center with our guides, rounding the same corners they rounded years ago as the building throbbed with chants of "USA! USA! USA!" And, more than likely, pass a group of 10-year-olds in warm-up jackets, skating out to center ice with their coach, keeping Lake Placid's Olympic tradition alive.
