Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games to Start in 365 Days

The Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games are one year away from 12 January, 2022. That's just 365 days until 1,600 collegiate-athletes come together in the heart of the Adirondacks to compete in the second largest winter multi-sporting event in the world.


To celebrate the Games being only one year away, there is a chance to join in on the fun and celebration. 



Gore Mountain, located in North Creek, will feature a "deck party" to bring awareness to the home of the Games' freestyle & freeski and snowboarding events. Happening on 15 January, 2022, from noon-4 p.m., the deck party will feature a DJ with music, games, events and giveaways. Visitors will also get a chance to meet and mingle with the Games' mascot, Adirondack Mac!


Whiteface Mountain, located in Wilmington, will host its "deck party" on 16 January, 2022, from noon-4 p.m. Whiteface is home to the Games' Alpine events. Visitors can also enjoy similar programs as Gore Mountain’s. 


A "Full-Moon Curling Party" on Mirror Lake at the Municipal Beach, organized by the Lake Placid 2023 Organizing Committee, will promote curling as one of the 12 sports for the Games. On 17 January, 2022, from 6-8 p.m., under the light of January's full moon, there will be curling, live music, fire pits and hot chocolate, and Adirondack Mac!


On 22 January, 2022, at 2:30 p.m., there will be a Flag Raising Ceremony in Lake Placid at Mid’s Park on Main Street. Delegates, Lake Placid 2023 Organizing Committee members and Village of Lake Placid Mayor Art Devlin will congregate to raise the official FISU Flag in Mid's Park, officially signifying Lake Placid and the North Country region as the Games' next host city.
