It’s hard to believe that we are less than 3 weeks from Labor Day. Granted, Labor Day comes early this year (Sept. 1), but still….. Anyway, we are keeping our eyes open now to see if there is any early change to the foliage in the Lake Placid Adirondacks region. We are not pushing the seasons as there is still an abundance of nice weather, enabling you to enjoy all of our summer activities.
Mirror Lake Inn’s private beach continues to offer complimentary boats; our outdoor pool is very attractive with water temps hovering around 80 degrees; and the Whiteface Club golf course will operate until at least Columbus Day. Area activities in the Adirondacks remain in mid-season mode.
The Lake Placid Olympic venues welcome visitors, whether it’s to ride the Cloudsplitter Gondola at Whiteface Mountain, take the 1/2 mile bobsled ride, go mountain biking at several sites, or watch the country’s best women hockey players skate this week at a camp in the Olympic Center.
The national team has two squads in Lake Placid, under 18 years of age and under 22. The rosters will be pared down and finalized as the US prepares to take on Canada in Calgary next week. Highlighting the US rosters are four members of the silver medal-winning 2014 U.S. Women’s Olympic Ice Hockey Team, including Alex Carpenter, Kendall Coyne, Michelle Picard and Lee Stecklein.
This Friday (Aug. 15) USA Luge, based in Lake Placid, will have an open house from 10:00 – 2:00. You can meet the team, learn more about luge and take a ride on a sled down the team’s iced training ramps.
And, of course, if you read this blog regularly, you are familiar with hiking in the Adirondack High Peaks, courtesy of Chelsea Walker in our salon.
