We are now in the middle of this exciting Winter season and the event-filled February month is finally upon us. RICHARD YOUR SPORTSCASTER is at the top of the Luge and Bobsled track at the Olympic Sports Complex getting ready to watch some World Class Lugers head down this exhilirating track. They are practicing and gearing up for an intense competition this coming weekend. The 2009 World Luge Championships are back in Lake Placid and will be held Friday February 6th through Sunday February 8th. Women and Men from all over the world are in Lake Placid and are vieing for Gold in preparation for the upcoming 2010 Olympics!!!
We are proud to have some of the World’s Best Luge athletes staying at our very own resort from the Gold winning country of Germany (known for their superb Luge skills). (Gosh! If I tried those high speeds down that track, would probably end up on my head down the track instead of my back….OUCH!!!) Anyway, this is definetely a must see as you head up into the Lake Placid area this weekend. An added bonus is on Saturday February 7th there will be a Worldfest on Mirror Lake Beach that is a free public event. This family oriented event will included tobbogan chute rides, inflatables, skating, hockey, broom ball, snow soccer, live music, food and awards ceremony for the athletes. Do not forget Lake Placid’s spectacular fireworks!!! This will be held 3-6:30pm. (Wow!! Fun fun fun!!!)
Do not forget that the 112th Saranac Lake Winter Carnival is also kicking off its festivites starting on Friday February 6th and running through Sunday February 15th. You must head to Saranac Lake and see the glorious Ice Castle that will be lit up this coming weekend. It is truly a sight to see!!! (Of course do not stick your tongue to the ice, from experience it is not a comfortable situation…lol).
Also, Whiteface Mountain has great ski conditions and what better way to enjoy time with the family then having a Lake Placid Ski Vacation. We have great packages for those seeking a little relief in the wallet.
What is everyone waiting for? We are just starting out the month of February and there is fun to be had by all. Keep in touch right here for more great events coming in the next few weeks. It is surely to be a time you do not want to miss. For more information about any of these events or upcoming happenings please visit www.lakeplacid.com. Time to hit the road as they are trying to send me down on a luge sled. Bye for now!!
