Lake Placid… Closer Than You Think! Get there by plane, train, bus, or automobile. NYSRPS would like to help all have a chance to attend the 2019 REC Sumiit.

Yes, Lake Placid is located in the mountains of Northern New York, but that doesn’t mean they play hard to get to. In fact, it is less than a five hour drive from most major northeastern metropolitan areas, including New York City and Boston.
