Lake Placid may be known as a top ski resort, but spring has its perks, too.
As the weather warms up, and the days get longer, the streets and slopes become a little quieter, making it feel as though you have the whole place to yourself, at times.
With premium lodging at great rates, indoor and outdoor recreation to keep you busy (who says ski season is over?) and award-winning spas to recover and rejuvenate from the gray days of winter, Lake Placid is the perfect spring retreat you never thought of – until now.

For Families and Adventurers
Beat cabin fever and finally get some fresh air! Take the whole family spring skiing at Whiteface Mountain. Soft snow is great for learning, and experienced skiers love to make the most of “corn” season, when all the melting and refreezing makes the snow look like kernels of unpopped popcorn.
For those looking to discover more of nature’s beauty in the region, Lake Placid offers hikes for all experience levels, many of which lead to stunning waterfalls.
And if the weather is still a little too chilly, you can feed your sense of adventure indoor rock climbing at Mt. Van Hoevenburg Olympic sports complex.
For Rest and Relaxation
With so many opportunities for adventure, you may not realize that Lake Placid is also known as a relaxation destination. Treat yourself to any number of wellness services at one of the area’s full-service spas and return home feeling refreshed.
You can purchase an original piece of local artwork at The Curious Otter wildlife gallery or Gallery 49, part of the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, which also presents regular classes, exhibits, galleries and musical and theatrical performances.
Those are just some of the ways you can make the most of a quick mid-week or weekend getaway in Lake Placid.
