A new experience presented by Wings Air Helicopters in partnership with Lake Placid Olympic Sites and Lake Placid Lodge
This exhilarating, year round experience begins with a private helicopter flight from Manhattan to Lake Placid, site of the historic 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics.
Upon arrival you begin your very own Olympic Games with a Torch Relay and Opening Ceremony at the Lake Placid Olympic Venue of your choice. Channel your inner athlete by racing down the bobsled track, curling, skiing Whiteface, skating around the outdoor Olympic Speed Skating Oval or testing your hockey acumen in the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena, where the Miracle On Ice took place. Guests will be timed and scored throughout the Games and medals will be awarded. Tour guide, ground transportation between venues and personalized, keepsake 1980 hockey jerseys are included.
After an action-packed day relax at the rustic Lake Placid Lodge, a Relais and Chateaux property overlooking Lake Placid. Lunch is prepared from local, seasonal ingredients. Overnight guests can enjoy snowshoeing, cross country skiing and a bonfire by the lake with S’Mores nightly. Optional: in-room massage before dinner to rejuvenate tired muscles, athlete meet-and-greet (subject to availability). Offerings vary based on season and length of stay. Recommended minimum age 13. The experience is concluded with a smooth helicopter flight back to Manhattan at sunset or the following day.
