Having everything needed for an excellent day of out outdoor recreation right on property is a highlight of our resort amenities program – and for good reason, because there's nothing quite like exploring the Adirondacks' beauty by boat, skates, skis, or sled.
Mirror Lake is a favorite natural wonder to take in during a visit to Lake Placid year-round, so naturally, playing on Mirror Lake is heralded by guests as a must during a stay at High Peaks Resort. In the summer, use our complimentary paddling equipment, including kayaks, rowboats, stand up paddleboards, and paddleboats, to glide along its calm surface as the sun comes up, or paddle off into the sunset after a day of Adirondack adventures.
In winter, skating the two-mile Mirror Lake Skating loop, or kicking around in our latest gear addition, authentic Norwegian Kicksleds, make for great ways to stay warm on a chilly winter's day. Or, reserve a winter package and adventure a bit outside of town to Cascade Cross Country Ski Center to enjoy cross country skiing or snowshoeing on their beautifully groomed, wooded trails. Afterward, warm up with a hot chocolate or a Hot Toddy at The Den by the fire.
