World Cup Luge at the lake Placid Sliding Center

Or Youth Bobsled and Skeleton sliding program is the only one of its kind in the United States. We have been training the next generation of bobsled and skeleton athletes for over 40 years. Olympians like John Napier, Codie Bascue and Hunter Church all started right here in Lake Placid. This program takes athletes as young as 8 years old and gives them a feel for sliding sports. We have several development athletes lined up for Junior World and the Junior Olympics. With more young prodigies advancing in our program to their first competitive events like Empire State Winter Games.
