On Route 73 just east of Lake Placid, Cross country skiing, luge, bobsled, skeleton, and biathlon are all available at the Olympics Sports Complex for spectators or participants. A mecca for world class athletes, it's the perfect place to try a new outdoor adventure or further develop your skills. The Storm bobsled ride is a sure shot of adrenaline as professional driver and brakeman guide you down a track that routinely challenges the best athletes in the world. The cross country ski area offers over 32 miles of meticulously groomed world class ski trails used for the 1980 Olympics. Whether you want a gently rolling ski or an intense workout there is something for everyone. There are also two dedicated snowshoeing trails and a biathlon course used for World Cup competitions. A 4.4 mile trail approaches the summit via Van Hoevenberg’s south face. The first mile of the trail wanders a near flat grade through a mixed forest. Afterwards the grade climbs as the trail gains approximately 1,800 feet to the summit. An overlook on the way up affords views of Mount Marcy to the south, and the summit itself overlooks Lake Placid to the northwest.
