Our luxurious resort puts you close to countless Lake Placid adventures that you’ll remember for years. We’ve put together a list of things to do on and off-site that are sure to get you into the holiday spirit.

What to Do on Your Holiday Getaway

Between charming Lake Placid Village and our variety of on-site activities, there is no shortage of things to do when visiting our Adirondack resort in the winter. When creating your itinerary, you won’t have any trouble finding fun ways to spend your days.

Things to Do in Lake Placid

Home to two Winter Olympic Games, it should be no surprise that Lake Placid is known for winter activities and sports. Head to Whiteface Mountain, also known as Olympic Mountain, to go flying down their trails, which can accommodate skiers and snowboarders of all levels.

Explore this winter wonderland on the cross-country ski trails that cake you all over the area. Several of these trails are multi-use, including the Peninsula Nature Trails, which means they’re also great options for snowshoeing.

An annual tradition in this region is the Lake Placid Holiday Village Stroll. The three-day December festival is the perfect family-friendly addition to your getaway. Enjoy a free movie showing, a Santa firetruck paradise, an ugly sweater party, a skating party, and more.

Fun Activities at Our Resort

There is just as much fun to be had right at our resort. We suggest:

  • Checking out our movie calendar for seasonally appropriate films
  • Warming up by the campfire while snacking on s’mores between 6 and 9:30 p.m.
  • Lacing up your ice skates and heading to our seasonal ice skating rink
