Overview

Historic Sheets Of Ice Await

Ice skating is ingrained into the Olympic DNA of Lake Placid, and that legacy is accessible to the public at the Olympic Center.

With the historic James C. Sheffield Speed Skating Oval outdoors, along with three historic rinks – the 1932 Jack Shea Arena, the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena, and the USA Rink – inside the Olympic Center itself, visitors can glide along the paths of past Olympians or watch world-class athletes compete.

Because we have both indoor and outdoor facilities, visitors can participate in our world-class Olympic skating experience year-round!

Curling Sessions

Curling in the 1932 Jack Shea Arena at the Olympic Center Lake Placid

The Olympic Center offers the opportunity to experience curling for the first time on half sheets of ice – for all ages and skill levels. This fun ice activity does not require skates and is an easy-going sport for groups of all sizes. A brief lesson introducing newcomers to curling begins the session before play. Each one hour and twenty minute session does have limited space and do sell out fast. Brooms, stones and safety equipment are provided by the arena. All participants are required to wear rubber soled shoes.

Guests who have larger groups or would like to play by themselves can pay $75 per hour and twenty minutes, which allows access to your own lane. Guests looking to purchase access to their own lane will be allowed to invite up to seven additional guests for a maximum total of eight people per lane. Individuals and smaller groups have the option of paying $15 per person per session and will be paired with/against others. The Olympic Center reserves the right to combine smaller teams together to maximize the capacity of the session so that everyone may have an opportunity to experience curling!
