lake placid olympic oval

The Lake Placid Oval site was started in 2012 in response to skater’s inquiries about ice conditions on the oval, which can be unpredictable on the outdoor ice surface. Over the years we have also reported on schedules (especially schedule changes) and passed along any other relevant information pertaining to the Oval, mostly sourced from or from Oval management directly. I hope that this resource is valuable to you and helps you plan your skating trip to Lake Placid!

Occasionally I share information from the Lake Placid Speed Skating Club, as many of those participating in the meets frequent the site and are looking for updates and information. I will also share interesting articles and other resources that pertain to Lake Placid speed skating or Lake Placid’s Olympic speed skating history.
