Since Lake Placid last hosted the ECAC and NCAA DIII tournaments in 2019 and 2018, respectively, the Olympic Center has undergone modernization projects specifically in the 1980 rink.
The upgrades include new seating, modernized media and concession areas, hospitality suites, new restrooms, a renovated concourse, LED event and broadcast-quality lighting, the ability to convert to NHL or international rink sizes, and a new air handling/dehumidification system.
The 1980 arena is networked to the Olympic Center’s new industrial refrigeration plant, designed to make ice with improved reliability and efficiency.
