Winter is coming to Lake Placid, three days ahead of schedule. The sliding track at Mt. Van Hoevenberg is expected to open for on-ice training Friday.
USA Luge will get the ice first, starting around 9 a.m., followed by the U.S. skeleton team later that morning and the U.S. bobsled team in the evening.
Sliding will continue Saturday, barring any unforeseen changes in conditions, then resume Monday — the originally planned opening date.
