Beautiful winter day in the Adirondacks Sunday for the continuing World University Winter Games in Lake Placid (Jan 12-22). Competitors from around the world in just about every winter sport, from curling to skating, hockey, and alpine and cross country skiing. It’s like a mini-Olympics without the lines and the pricey tickets. (Click on photo or headline for more and gallery link.) Pick an event, get tickets online and go. I was at the cross country sprints at Mt. Van Hoevenberg. The sun was out and, unlike most of January so far, it felt and looked like winter. Click here for a gallery.
