For the past seven decades, Lake Placid has been committed to the world of figure skating. From the inception of U.S. Figure Skating to the very first Skate America international competition to hosting two Olympic Games, we have been a part of great moments in figure skating. Several legendary coaches have chose Lake Placid to set up their training programs. We are the official home of Smucker's Stars on Ice and the host of several competitions each year including international championships.
There have been countless champions who have come through these doors on their paths to success. However, Lake Placid Skating is not only about those skaters who make it to the top of the podium. Every skater has different goals and aspirations, all of which are important and all of which help develop the skater as a whole person. We are dedicated to providing the best atmosphere and program for each skater, regardless of their skating ability, and contributing to the success of each individual.
