What a great mountain. Great runs from the top are Skyward and Cloudspin, both of which were the downhill courses for the men and women in the Olympics in the 80's. Done skiing? It doesn't matter. About 10 minutes from the olympic town of Lake Placid and about 20 minutes from the mountain itself is a bobsled course that you can actually take a spin down (don't worry paremts, there is a pro brake man and steering man on the run). Now that was something I will never forget.
