Overview

Ice Skating

Now Open for Winter 2020/2021 Season!

Ice skating is ingrained into the Olympic DNA of Lake Placid, and that legacy is accessible to the public at the Olympic Center. With the speed skating rink outdoors and two historic rinks—the 1932 Jack Shea Arena and the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena—inside the Olympic Center itself, visitors can glide along the paths of past Olympians or watch world-class athletes compete.

Because we have both indoor and outdoor facilities, visitors can participate in our world-class Olympic skating experience year-round!
