Old Forge native in 2018 Olympics.................

If you plan on watching any of the Olympics this year.  Keep an eye out for Maddie Phaneuf in the Biathlon. She grew up here and still calls Old Forge home.

Lowell Bailey claims it was here in Old Forge that he "first put on a pair of skies." He moved to Lake Placid with his family when he was 10.  He also will be in the Biathlon at the 2108 Olympics.

One last person to note is Erin Hamlin.  She's not from Old Forge, but Remsen which is just down the road about 30 miles.

Over the years Old Forge has sent three others to the Olympic stage.....John "Louie" Ehrensbeck, Hank Kashiwa and Gary Vaughn. 


  1. That’s great ... snow totals ?

  2. Old forge snowmobiler Rich Laubenstien, from Pennsylvania, is the chief mechanic for the US Bobsled team and is often seen at the start line of every run, he's the serious looking guy each time.

  3. That’s also great ... how’s the trails ?

  4. what about Pat Cunningham from Blue Mtn Lake.
