Lake Placid Snowfactory Skiing is Underway – BELIEVE IT
October 23, 2017 (Lake Placid, NY) – WOW… despite balmy weather conditions out east, Lake Placid has snow at the Mt. Van Hoevenberg Cross Country and Biathlon Center. “I just skied 6k at MVH. We have 480m out and back, 2′ deep and 16′ wide,” wrote Kris Seymour, Nordic program manager at MVH courtesy of their Snowfactory portable snowmaking system.
The US Para Nordic team is arriving today we understand, and Seymour says if things go according to plan four local clubs will be using their strip of snow this week including UVM, Middlebury, St. Lawrence and NYSEF. “We’ll be open to the public this weekend if things go according to plan,” added Seymour.
