1932 Jack Shea Arena
The 1932 Arena is networked to the Olympic Center’s new refrigeration plant, which is designed to make ice faster, more reliably, and more efficiently than in past. The new rink includes sound-absorbing panels for better acoustics throughout the arena, a new dehumidification system, a new concession area, and new dasher boards. The rink can now be converted to either international or NHL size standards. All seats have been replaced in an attractive deep blue color, and new seating areas have been added to the balcony side of the stadium. The 1932’s ice is maintained with an electric Zamboni.
1980 Herb Brooks Arena
Where the USA Olympic Hockey team won against Russia and went on to win the gold medal in the 1980 olympic games. The 1980 Rink sits in the Herb Brooks Arena and in 2021 it underwent major updates and renovations. In particular, the 1980 Rink and concourse were equipped with LED Event & TV Quality Lighting and a new HVAC system. Renovations to the Locker rooms, public restrooms, concessions stands, and hospitality suites have also been made. And to top it off, the rink can now be converted to either international or NHL size standards.
James C Sheffield Speed Skating Oval
The James C. Sheffield Speed Skating Oval is one of the few outdoor rinks of its kind left in the country and it sits in the heart of Lake Placid, adjacent to the Olympic Center. The facility just underwent a major revitalization, including updates to the refrigeration system, which will enable a longer and more consistent skating season.
