Estimated trip cost is $1,600.00 for athletes who do not attend Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, or Keene public high school or have a legal full time residence in those school districts. Estimated trip cost for athletes who attend Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, or Keene public high school or have a legal full time residence in those school districts is $1150.00 the difference in price is due to the lodging cost at the OTC. Athletes not staying at the OTC are paying for meals and usage of the OTC. This is just an estimate and will go up or down based on the final number of athletes who accept nominations.
