adirondacks, usa – The 2016 Empire State Winter Games promise to provide as riveting an experience for spectators as for the athletes themselves.
With the addition of a number of contemporary action sports and new venues, spectators should be prepared to be entertained and exhilarated from the Opening Ceremony through the gold medal rounds.
Winter finally arrived but it took longer than necessary.
We were actually wondering for a while. In mid December, hotel management took matters into its own hands and made its own winter by purchasing snow guns and blasting a surface suitable for sledding. See previous winter blog.
But then, the mercury hit 62 degrees on December 24 and as avid golfers took divots, tourism officials in and around Lake Placid created winter when there was none…….until the day after Christmas, that is.
Despite the absence of snow, there is a robust lineup of activities for holiday revelers in the Olympic region.
Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain are banding together to offer holiday seekers an exciting mix of on-mountain and downtown Lake Placid entertainment options throughout the holiday season.
