WELCOME TO THE 2024 LAKE PLACID TRAIL CHALLENGE
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
Mt Van Hoevenberg is a massive nordic ski center with endless trails of all types. Single track, double track, flat, steep, and flowy, you’ll find it all here at the venue that hosted events for the 1980 Winter Olympics.
Racers will start and finish in the stadium that serves as the centerpiece to this winter sports complex, and their path will take them through dense forest and up steep climbs to the top of a bobsled track and beyond. Epic views await at the summit, as does a test of the legs for the long descent to the finish
