Venue Accessibility

The New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) aims to ensure venues are accessible and inclusive for all. As a global leader in developing and maintaining the highest quality venues for winter sport and recreation, ORDA meets or exceeds all ADA requirements for accessibility.

Along with major recent investments to upgrade all venues, the ORDA team incorporated accessibility into the design of its new and improved facilities.

ORDA is committed to ensuring venues are accessible for all people, regardless of disabilities. In addition to entrances and access, visitors may notice thoughtful design in restrooms, signage, spectator seating areas, dining facilities, service counters, website features, and other elements critical for accessibility.
