SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – This ski resort here in the Adirondack Mountains is again number one! It’s tops for off-hill activities. Tops for après-ski. Tops for nightlife. And tops for ski challenge, ski scenery and ski character.
And while area hotels and restaurants are also tops in their fields, one of them – the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa – just received its AAA Four Diamond Award for the 30th consecutive year! That’s 30 years in a row! And its cozy restaurant, The View, received the AAA Four Diamond Award for its 7th consecutive year! Just to put things in perspective, the Mirror Lake Inn Resort is the second longest running AAA Four Diamond Property in the state, just behind Manhattan’s Carlyle Hotel.
“The Four Diamond Award means we are exceptional,” explained Ed Weibrecht of the honor as he addressed his staff. “We have a beautiful hotel, and we’re located in a beautiful village. But without the passion that you bring to the Mirror Lake Inn we would not be as successful.”
