Topping the list of activities is the Lake Placid Bobsled Experience—a thrill of a lifetime you'll be ready to re-do as soon as you catch your breath. For a more leisurely tour through the natural environment, visit our cross country ski center in winter, and drink in the beauty of the Adirondacks on our 50 km of Nordic trails. In the summer & fall, take a drive up the Veterans' Memorial Highway to the summit of Whiteface Mountain—New York's fifth highest peak—and enjoy 360-degree panoramic views reaching as far as Vermont and Canada.
Our Olympic sites are always buzzing with activity! Explore all of our offerings below and be sure to check out our Activities & Events Calendar to find out what's happening this week.
This is a one of a kind exclusive experience which hasn't been offered here at the Mt. Van Hoevenberg for over 10 years. For a limited time, its back for you to see if you have what it takes to slide with an Olympian.
During the winter season, take an in depth look at this sport that combines freestyle skiing and rifle marksmanship. Take a ski lesson to start the program or just join us on the range to zero in your shooting skills.
Join us at our new woodland retreat to celebrate the dream of Josephine Schofield. You'll find naturalists, artists and leaders in our community for a series of unique natural history lessons about Mt. Van Hoevenberg and the Adirondack Region.
