Overview

IBSF Para Sport World Cup | Mt. Van Hoevenberg

Monday, Nov. 22 – Tuesday, Nov. 23

The sport of Bobsleigh and Skeleton tests an athlete’s strength, finesse, and courage because athletes descend at a high rate of speed down a frozen twisting ice chute.  The International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation now offers this same challenge to elite athletes with an impairment, through its Para Bobsleigh and Para Skeleton sport disciplines.

Lake Placid is pleased to host an IBSF Para Sport event yearly to assist with developing Para Bobsled and Skeleton into legitimate recognized international sports with the ultimate goal to be recognized by the IPC for inclusion in future Winter Paralympic Games.

Last year, Lake Placid hosted approximately 20 athletes, representing the following countries: Australia, Latvia, Austria, Norway, Canada, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Great Britain, Switzerland, Israel, United States, Italy.

Come out and cheer on these amazing and inspiring athletes this February.  Tickets for this event will be available at the gate.
