Olympic Speed Skating Oval  |  1932 Jack Shea Arena  |  USA Rink

Skate two of our four rinks, one indoors, one out, both with a direct link to Olympic glory, and both here for you to enjoy. You can't tell the story of competitive skating without involving the Village of Lake Placid. It was in Lake Placid during the 1932 Winter Olympics that Norwegian figure skater Sonja Henie won gold and pirouetted into hearts around the world. That same year, the USA Men's Speed Skating Team made a gold medal sweep, with local hero Jack Shea striking gold twice and teammate Irving Jaffee winning the remaining two medals. Nearly 50 years later on that very Oval, USA Men's Speed Skater Eric Heiden set Olympic history by winning an unprecedented five gold medals.

Bring your own or rent skates from us. In the center of the Speed Skating Oval, one of the few outdoor rinks of its kind left in the country, get cozy and warm up around the fire pit. On both rinks, you'll be skating with history! Skating on the Olympic Speed Skating Oval is FREE with your Olympic Sites Passport (one time admission).
