Day in Lake Placid with teens

We'll be staying on Lake George for a week in late July but are planning at least a day (maybe an overnight) in Lake Placid. We drove through town once and had lunch but didn't even visit the Olympic area.

What kind of activities can we find for our family - 15, 18, and we parents (early 50's, active & healthy). We've done lots of Lake George area stuff - so we're curious about Lake Placid area specifically. Things to do at the Olympic Center? Any zip lines in the area? Outside activities?

I've just spent 2 days in Lake Placid with a 13 year old son and 17 year old daughter. It's early in the season and not everything is open but we have all had a great time at the Olympic sites. The museum and ice rinks in town were great fun, though not fancy or high tech. Today we rode the bobsled and hiked down the current bobsled run and it was amazing! Expensive for the bobsled, but when is that opportunity ever going to come up again? Every Winter Olympics from here on will bring back great memories. The view from the top of the ski jump hill was also a one-of-a-kind experience. It's tough to impress teens, but if they've watched the Olympics at all they'll like seeing the sites up close.
