ORDA Offers New Options For Locals, Frequent Visitors

ORDAThe New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority’s (ORDA) Olympic venues are offering  a new ticket option for locals and frequent visitors: a $79 Gold Pass that provides unlimited access to the Olympic sites.

The Gold Pass includes unlimited admission to the Olympic Jumping Complex, including the Summer Jumping Series; the Olympic Sports Complex, Olympic Museum, Veterans’ Memorial Highway and the Whiteface Mountain Cloudsplitter gondola rides.  It can also be used for admission to Oktoberfest, the Flaming Leaves Festival, Saturday Night ice shows, selected events and 20-percent off the Lake Placid Bobsled Experience and Skeleton Experience.

“Over the years, many people, especially locals, have been asking for a way to ‘re-enter’ ORDA’s venues to bring visiting friends and family to events and activities without having to pay for themselves every time. We wanted to create something that made it easy and convenient for locals to get access to our venues and as many times as they want,” ORDA president and CEO Ted Blazer said in a statement issued to the press.

The Gold Pass will complement the long-time visitor favorite, Olympic Sites Passport and also the Olympic Sites Passport which offers the opportunity to see and experience the Olympic venues from both the 1932 and 1980 winter Games, for $32.  The Passport gives one-time admission to all the Olympic venues plus discounts on the Lake Placid Bobsled Experience, Be a Biathlete, as well as event tickets and shows.

The Gold Pass is available at Whiteface Mountain, in Wilmington, N.Y. or online.
