Lake Placid, NY – The New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (Olympic Authority) announces record visits of more than one million to its venues during the 2022-2023 year that concluded on March 31. The Olympic Authority estimates this is an increase of more than 15-percent from pre-pandemic visitation.

Olympic Authority venues include the alpine ski resorts of Belleayre Mountain, Gore Mountain, and Whiteface Mountain, along with the Olympic Center, Mt Van Hoevenberg, and Olympic Jumping Complex. The average number of admissions to the venues over the previous three years was approximately 828,000, which was below the pre-pandemic average of approximately 840,000 per year. Conference Center events, custom groups, non-ticket events, and functions are not included in any of these calculations, which would reflect an even higher number of visits.
