There's nothing quite like exploring the Adirondacks' beauty by boat, skates, skis, or sled. So whether you'd like to enjoy our complementary watercraft in the summer or take advantage of relationships we've built with local skate and ski shops, our team of guest service professionals can assist you in crafting your perfect Adirondack vacation.
Kicking around the two-mile Mirror Lake Skating loop on our authentic Norwegian Kicksleds or traversing the loop on ice skates makes for a great way to stay warm on a chilly winter's day. If you'd like to venture even further from town, Cascade Cross Country Ski Center boasts beautifully groomed, wooded snowshoe and cross country ski trails. However you make our High Peaks your own, you're sure to warm up in front of a crackling fire with a hot chocolate or a Hot Toddy in The Den.

Summer Equipment Rentals
Mirror Lake is a spectacular 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.
