North American Toboggan Championships | Lions Club Toboggan Races

The Lake Placid Toboggan Chute, located on Parkside Drive, adjacent to the Post Office, has been in operation since the 1960's. The North Elba Park District currently operates the slide. A 30' high converted ski jump trestle sends toboggans down ice covered chutes onto frozen Mirror Lake. Depending on weather conditions toboggans can travel over 1,000 feet once they reach the frozen lake surface. To insure the safety of riders only one sled is sent down at a time. Families have always said that their visit to the Toboggan Chute was a highlight of their winter vacation.

Since the actual outrun of the slide is the frozen lake surface, the official opening day for operation varies from year to year. We have been open as early as December 26 and one year it wasn't until February before we were in operation. Generally we get operating around the first full weekend in January. We like to have 10-12 inches of good solid ice to insure the safety of our guests.

The North American Toboggan Championships - are now held on the Saturday of Presidents Day weekend in February.

Normal Hours of operation: 7-9 p.m. Wednesday; noon - 4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; and noon - 2 p.m. Sunday.
