“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Take the gondola to the top of the mountain and enjoy the view of the beautiful lakes. The ride up is a bit scary, although it seemed very safe. We had 8 people in one gondola comfortably.

“interesting museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

enjoyed the museum area looking at the antique bobsleds, and basically exploring the grounds it didn't appear that the bobsled run was operating, however we were pretty early and it seemed that is off season in lake placid area.

“Scenic and great variety; yet misleading trail signs.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great; energizing two days on these trails snowshoeing! However, the lopet trail needs more precise signs indicating when you have arrived "Full 'circle'; and how you get back to the lodge.

“spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Worth it for scenic tour and hiking, walking but be sure there is decent visibility when you go because the view is the best.
