Welcome to the Snowdrifters Winter Olympic Extravaganza

Boasting 3,430 feet of vertical, Lake Placid s Whiteface ski resort is a skier s and rider s East Coast dream. The New York ski resort offers terrain for every skiing ability, whether you re a beginner or an Olympian. Whiteface s renowned vertical drop tells only part of the story. Whiteface has genuine Olympic credentials, as its nearby town, Lake Placid, was the host of the 1932 and 1980 winter Olympics. Located 61 miles from Burlington Vermont our direct flight town from O’Hare.

We are staying at the newly remodeled, centrally located Grand Adirondack Hotel.  The hotel offers locally inspired menus at Marcy, artisanal hand-crafted cocktails and regular live entertainment at Marcy Bar, have a drink by the fire at the Great Room bar or see Lake Placid from a different perspective at our seasonal,rooftop Cloudsplitter Bar. In town you have your choice of everything from the ubiquitous pizza to wild game and fine wine.
