When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.

The 2018 Empire State Winter Games is a multi-day sports event hosted in Lake Placid, New York, from February 1 - February 4. In its 38th year, the Games will bring together athletes from across New York State and beyond to compete in over 30 winter sports events. The 2017 Games included more than 2,100 athletes of all ages, including master divisions, and the 2018 Games are expected to exceed that number.

Empire State Winter Games never charges an admission fee for spectators. However, some of our Olympic sports venues charge an entry fee. If attending the Olympic venues, an Olympic Sites Passport is available for purchase at each venue for $35. The pass includes admittance to Whiteface gondola (foot passengers only — this is not a lift ticket), Olympic Jumping Complex, Olympic Sliding Center and the Lake Placid Olympic Museum.  The Olympic Center, which plays host to figure skating,  Squirt hockey and short track speed skating, offers free admission to all events.  The Opening Ceremony on Thursday, February 1 at 6 p.m., is FREE and open to the public.

Titus Mountain and Mt. Pisgah both allow excellent viewing from their respective base lodges and require no admittance fee for spectating.
