We here at the Whiteface Lodge understand that a four-year period is a long time to wait for your favorite winter Olympic sports. Luckily for you, this first-hand experience is at your fingertips with a Lake Placid Olympic Passport. Ride the Cloudsplitter Gondola and survey the snowy scenery surrounding you, secure in the knowledge that you saved a bundle by purchasing this deal. We have just one question for you: are you ready to live out every Olympic-lover’s dream?


Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up; it’s bobsled time! Visit the Olympic Sports Complex in Lake Placid, NY, for the thrill-ride of a lifetime. Strap on your helmet, kiss your lucky egg (or pendant of choice), and zip down an Olympic bobsled track at speeds up to 55 miles per hour! While bobsledding doesn’t fall under passport coverage, you are eligible for a discount, and it’s definitely worth the experience.


Nothing quite says fun like whipping down an icy slide at 30 miles per hour face-first! Have you ever wondered what it might be like to participate in skeleton? Wonder no more! Lake Placid Olympic Passport does cover this adrenaline-filled adventure, so if you and your friends are heart-pumping thrill-seekers, then check out our skeleton group deals

Other Things Covered by a Lake Placid Olympic Passport 

While you can’t quite get the ski jumping experience in the same way as the above bobsledding and skeleton options (unless you’ve trained for that!), you can get the next best thing. Take our eight-person Skyride that runs alongside the ramp upon which ski jumpers launch themselves over a football-sized field. Enjoy the mountainous view during this prime 360-degree gondola ride and take in the bountiful landscape of Lake Placid, NY. 

With this passport, you can also enjoy: 

  • A beautiful ride to the top of Little Whiteface Moutain on the Cloudsplitter Gondola 
  • Access to unreleased footage of the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” game at the Lake Placid Olympic Museum
  • Free admission to the Olympic Jumping Complex 
  • Event and festival admission which may include World Cup luge, bobsled, and skeleton
  • Discounts on various Olympic-themed sites.
