Mirror Lake InnLake Placid, N.Y. – In the spring, Andrew Weibrecht, son of Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa owners Ed and Lisa Weibrecht, ended a 16-year alpine skiing career that included Olympic silver and bronze medals. That announcement, however, opened a door for recreational skiers who are guests of the AAA Four Diamond resort in Lake Placid.

Starting this winter, Andrew will be available to guide hotel guests, exclusively, down the slopes of Whiteface Mountain. The 1980 Olympic site is where he learned his craft with his two brothers. Now he’ll take you down those same slopes at speeds comfortable for all skiers and on appropriate terrain for their ability levels.

holiday-valleyEllicottville, NY (November 21, 2018) – Holiday Valley’s President and General Manager, Dennis Eshbaugh announced that the resort will open for its 61st season on Friday, November 23, 2018. According to Eshbaugh, “It's the most exciting time of the year, a day that we plan for starting on closing day of the season before. Our snowmakers and groomers have been hard at work prepping the slopes. We've made over 65 acre feet of snow so far, with more to come.” Eshbaugh credits the powerful and efficient HDK automated snowmaking system for producing this large amount of manmade snow in a short amount of time. Holiday Valley has the largest HKD automated snowmaking system in the Eastern US. Natural snowfall has been plentiful over the past week and a half, with more than 14 inches that created a beautiful snowy scene and blended with the manmade snow for an average base depth of 6 to 18 inches.
