Lake Placid, N.Y. – Just to make sure everyone was paying attention, Mother Nature reminded us last week that winter is upon us in Upstate New York. A 10-inch snowfall got us thinking that skiing, boarding, skating, hockey and the rest are closer than we think in the Adirondack Mountains.
Whiteface Mountain, just 10 miles from the Mirror Lake Inn, is poised for a Thanksgiving opening, weather permitting. The Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa in Lake Placid is ready as well. Last season, the AAA Four Diamond property debuted a new onsite ski shop manned by Olympic silver and bronze medalist Andrew Weibrecht, and his brother, Ethan, a former college ski racer. The concept resonated well with guests, so this year, not only will the service be repeated, but the inn has added a brand-new fleet of top of the line premium ski rentals from Head.
