Key facts

 

The 31st Winter Universiade in 2023 will return the FISU Flame to North American soil for the first time since nearby city Buffalo hosted the Summer Universiade in 1993 . This marks the first time the Winter Universiade returns to a former host city as Lake Placid held the event in 1972. With the sporting spirit of Lake Placid, combined with the historic and well-loved winter sports facilities of the region the international university sports movement is in good hands. 


Lake Placid's winning Winter Universiade candidature was boosted by the region's longstanding tradition of sports development excellence and historic venues like the long track speed skating oval just off the village's main street
