Cascade Welcome Center is Now Open

Cascade Welcome Center is Now Open

ADK’s Cascade Welcome Center will offer visitor information, restrooms, and retail

June 7, 2022 — Lake Placid, NY — The Adirondack Mountain Club’s Cascade Welcome Center is now open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to stop by for information about trail conditions, trip planning, local events, and more. The Center is also providing free public restrooms and basic outdoor gear essentials, such as headlamps, maps, and bear canisters. 

Located along Route 73 between Lake Placid and Keene, Cascade Welcome Center is based out of a familiar site: the former owners, the Jubin family, ran the property as Cascade Ski Center for 40 years. ADK finalized the purchase of the property and business this spring. In addition to maintaining winter ski and snowshoeing operations, ADK is working to expand Cascade Welcome Center’s offerings to eventually include outdoor skills workshops, youth programs, community events, and more. Specifics about services will be shared once ADK finalizes a business plan for the Center. 

“Cascade Welcome Center supports area visitors with the information needed to have a safe and responsible experience,” said Michael Barrett, ADK Executive Director. “ADK has been providing reliable visitor information for nearly 50 years. Cascade Welcome Center is a big step toward broadening the reach of those services.” 

“Whether it’s to plan a trip or rent a bear canister, I encourage every visitor to stop by and check out Cascade Welcome Center,” said Henry Liebers, Cascade Welcome Center Coordinator. “This is your one-stop shop for planning a visit to the Lake Placid area.” 

Cascade Welcome Center is open Thursdays through Mondays, 8am to 4pm, throughout the summer. For current information about the property, visit ADK.org or call 518-837-5047.
