Lake Placid: Bring A Sled For Adirondack Family Fun

Our car in the winter looks like a sporting goods store. Ice skates, sleds and snowshoes are the standard elements for winter fun for our family in the Adirondacks. 

Sledding in Lake Placid can be tricky. Though most people will go sledding on local golf courses, do realize that it is private property and you are considered a trespasser. 

One of the wonderful things about an old fashioned sledding hill is anyone can do it from the youngest to eldest in your group. 

Sadly, kids, families and young people think the only way to sled is to go tubing at one of the ski mountains like Titus Mountain, Mt Pisgah or near Whiteface at the Lake Placid Ski Jumps. This is better exercise and it's free.
