LAKE PLACID – With winter falling further away in our rear view mirror, we turn out attention to Lake Placid summer events. The lineup in our town is never ending, so with no further delay, here we go:
ADIRONDACKS – For 20 years, the Ausable Two Fly Challenge has been a staple in the Wilmington-Lake Placid area.
Two decades of storytelling, yucks, great food, renew old friendships, and oh yeah, some fishing. The two fly challenge is set for May 16-18 on one of the best fly fishing locations in the nation – the Ausable River – and is hosted by the Whiteface Region Visitors Bureau. The Mirror Lake Inn is a brown trout level sponsor.
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – Less than a year after concluding a ski racing career that produced Olympic silver and bronze medals, Andrew Weibrecht of Lake Placid, was among eight skiers, boarders and snow sport officials inducted April 6 into the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum. The Michigan-based organization hosted their gala ski hall induction event in Salt Lake City.
Weibrecht, son of Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa owners Ed and Lisa Weibrecht, recorded his medals in 2010 and 2014, both in Super G. He announced his retirement nearly one year ago, ending 16 years with the U.S. Ski Team.
