Empire State Winter Games

Artistic expression and athleticism blend together in figure skating.  

Freestyle skiing has no limits.

Living on the edge of a single blade, Trisha Roohan, from Delmar, at top, competes in the junior lady free skate competition at the Empire State Games last Saturday afternoon at the 1980 Rink in Lake Placid, while, above, a bobsledder finishes his second run at the Mt.

Ice and snow couldn’t stop the athletes competing in the 35th annual Empire State Winter Games last weekend in Lake Placid.

Sharp as a skate’s blade, performance on ice is honed to perfection by girls who start competing at a young age. Talent from Guilderland and the Helderbergs was on display last weekend in Lake Placid for the 35th annual Empire State Winter Games.

The Empire State Winter Games lasted from Feb. 6 to 9 and featured athletes from across the state in Olympic events in a region that has twice hosted the international games.
