This exhilarating, year round experience begins with a private helicopter flight from Manhattan to Lake Placid, site of the historic 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics.
Upon arrival you begin your very own Olympic Games with a Torch Relay and Opening Ceremony at the Lake Placid Olympic Venue of your choice. Channel your inner athlete by racing down the bobsled track, curling, skiing Whiteface, skating around the outdoor Olympic Speed Skating Oval or testing your hockey acumen in the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena, where the Miracle On Ice took place. Guests will be timed and scored throughout the Games and medals will be awarded.
After an action-packed day relax at the rustic Lake Placid Lodge, a Relais and Chateaux property overlooking Lake Placid. Lunch is prepared from local, seasonal ingredients. Tour guide and ground transportation between venues included. Offerings vary based on season and length of stay. The experience is concluded with a smooth helicopter flight back to Manhattan at the end of the day with a quick skyline tour before landing.
