To the Lake Placid community:
What an amazing event we had at Lake Placid this weekend with the USANA Freestyle Cup. On behalf of our U.S. Freestyle Ski Team athletes, I would like to thank the Whiteface Mountain and ORDA staff, as well as the Lake Placid community, for a wonderful event.
Lake Placid is home to the first domestic World Cup each season and the energy that surrounds the event is palpable. Lake Placid has created an environment that makes our athletes feel at home whether they are training or competing. Your commitment to the event from start to finish was much appreciated.
Lake Placid was pivotal in setting the stage for Hannah Kearney to boost her win streak to 11, setting a new FIS Freestyle record. Thank you, once again, for your hard work, dedication and support for a successful World Cup.
