Wintertime can mean lots of snow, and not much time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. One place to enjoy the great outdoors and scenic beauty is Lake Placid, nestled in the Adirondacks.
An event that will bring fun for the entire family is the annual Nordic Festival at Lake Placid. From February 27 – March 1, 2015, you can experience all the fun and excitement of outdoor adventure.
Whether you are a novice or total Nordic expert, this festival has something for everyone. You can experience 3 jam-packed days of outdoor excitement. The Nordic Festival will have races, clinics and workshops for everyone. There will be introductory workshops, giving you the basics of skiing and enjoyment for the entire family. If you don’t know much about skiing, this workshop is perfect as it gives you the “101” and walks you through everything you need to know to get started.
From sun up, all the way into the night, you can take ski tours and share in the scenic wintertime landscape that Lake Placid has to offer. If you love watching those winter biathlons on the Olympics, you can now experience it first hand yourself at the Lake Placid Nordic Festival.
