Travel Site Ranks Lake Placid in Top 5 Ski Destinations for 2010
Lake Placid the only eastern ski destination in North America listed
Here’s what Kayak Traveler had to say.
If you are thinking about an East Coast ski retreat, your first choice has to be Lake Placid, with its storied history of hosting world competitions. Whiteface boasts the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies and 85 different trails. An area known as ”The Slides” offers premier, expert-only, skiable chutes down narrow faces. Find a partner, however, because the ski patrol requires groups of two or more for these sections. For family fun, check out the large public ice skating rinks, tour the Olympic museum, or book a jaw-rattling ride down a world-class bobsled or skeleton course.
