Lake Placid New York White Chocolate

Lake Placid is a village in the Adirondack Mountains in Essex County, New York, United States. Lake Placid is certainly best known as the two-time site of the Winter Olympics. In the United States, the serene village is especially remembered as the site of the 1980 USA-USSR hockey game, the "Miracle on Ice," when a group of American college students and amateurs upset the heavily favored Soviet national ice hockey team 4-3 and two days later won the gold medal. This hockey victory is often ranked as the greatest in American sports history. It is also the site of the Olympic Oval, where Eric Heiden won his five Olympic gold medals. Since 1999 it has been a site for the annual Ironman Triathlon, one of only six official Ironman Triathlons to be held in the continental U.S. The next scheduled race will be on July 26, 2009. Athletes will be competing for a Pro Prize purse of $50,000 and 80 qualifying slots to the 2009 Ford Ironman World Championship.
