The start of the bobsled and skeleton run on the 1980 Olympic track in Lake Placid, NY. This same track was built in 1930 and used for the 1932 Olympics, too, but started a 1/2 mile further up the mountain. Today the athletes use a refrigerated track.

For more detailed information read the Mount Van Hoevenberg Olympic Bobsled Run National Register Nomination. Even pictures are included on this digitized NR!
