Lake Placid, NY
During your visit, the clan can tour Olympic facilities, and practice their figure eights at five former Winter Olympic venues. Facilities are open daily year-round. However, hours of operation vary, so check schedules upon arrival.
- The Olympic Center
This is home to four ice rinks, including the Lake Placid Olympic Arena where the 1980 USA Olympic hockey team upset the Russian team in the "Miracle on Ice."
- Olympic Speed Skating Oval
Eric Heiden won five gold medals here in 1980.
- The MacKenzie-Intervale Ski Jumping Complex
From a take-your-breath-away observation deck, watch hot-doggers lift off from 90- and 120-meter ski-jump towers.
- Mt. Van Hoevenberg Olympic Sports Complex
This is ground zero for cross-country skiing and mountain biking. It's also home to those slippery bobsled and luge/skeleton tracks you see on TV during the World Cup Finals in February and March.
