UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Sports in the United States are an important part of the country’s culture. There are five major professional sports leagues in the United States: Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Basketball Association (NBA), the National Football League (NFL), the National Hockey League (NHL), and Major League Soccer (MLS). All major sports enjoy wide-range domestic media coverage and are considered the preeminent leagues in their respective sports globally. Sports are particularly associated with education in the United States, and most high schools and universities have organised sports teams. Sports play an important role in the American University sporting culture, and collegiate basketball and football are as popular as professional sports in some parts of the country. The major sanctioning body for university sports is the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). NEW YORK STATE New York State has a rich competitive sports foundation with two MLB teams, three NHL franchises, two NBA teams, two MLS teams, and three NFL teams. There are a variety of minor league baseball teams and leagues throughout the State of New York. Five out of 30 American Hockey League teams are in upstate New York, as well as numerous baseball leagues and university sports teams across all levels. The Division III State University of New York (SUNY) Athletic Conference and Empire 8 consist almost entirely of New York-based teams. New York State is also home to the most ski areas in the entire United States, providing a variety of terrain from the high peaks of the Adirondacks to the rolling hills of the Catskills. Whiteface Mountain boasts an elevation of 4,867 feet (1,483 meters), while Gore Mountain offers the most skiable acres of any other resort in the state. From World Cup competitions, to youth winter sports and pond hockey, the Adirondack North Country region of New York State relishes in winter snow sports. The annual Olympic-style competitions for amateur athletes from the state of New York, the Empire State Winter Games, take place in the Adirondacks each winter. THE ADIRONDACK PARK The Adirondack Park is a 6-million acre outdoor recreational paradise with a unique combination of high rocky summits and endless waterways. The mountain topography, lake effects and jet stream dynamics provide the region weather patterns ideal for snow production and optimal conditions for skiing and riding. Snow typically begins falling in October or November, and can continue through April or May. Snow production is steadiest between December and March, with 15 to 30 inches (38 to 76 cm) of snow falling per month throughout the region. During wintertime, the mountain air is crisp and clear. People that visit our region — whether to compete in organised sports, explore our vast wilderness, or simply to unplug and relax — are rewarded with magnificent adventures and pristine conditions amidst some of the most breathtaking views in the country. LAKE PLACID Lake Placid is a year-round destination for travelers from around the world. Its location in the heart of the Adirondacks provides a perfect backdrop for healthy pursuits and an active lifestyle. The area’s unique attractions, courtesy of hosting two Olympic Winter Games in 1932 and in 1980, provide the infrastructure necessary to host a variety of sporting events, including both 6

indoor and outdoor rinks for hockey, trails for running and mountain biking, fields for Nordic, biathlon, lacrosse and rugby, and well-maintained paved roadways for major races like the Lake Placid Marathon and Ironman Lake Placid. WILMINGTON Just a short drive north along the Olympic Scenic Byway, the town of Wilmington is nestled in the valley of the West Branch of the AuSable River. Wilmington is home to Whiteface Mountain, site of the 1980 Olympic Alpine skiing competitions. The very summit of Whiteface, with its unparalleled views, can also be accessed by the impressive Whiteface Veterans Memorial Highway during summer and fall months. The town offers rugged wilderness with cozy alpine amenities as well as year round recreation. With kilometers of new trails, it is quickly becoming the mountain biking center of the Adirondacks. SARANAC LAKE Saranac Lake is a picturesque community lined with restaurants, art galleries, shops, and unique historical architecture. Much of the village fronts on Lake Flower. Cross-country and downhill skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, and snowmobiling are popular winter activities in the region. There is also an annual 10-day winter carnival, an event that has brought people together in celebration of winter since 1897. The village was named the best small town in New York State and ranked 11th on the list of 100 Best Small Towns in America. In 1998, the National Civic League named Saranac Lake an All-America City. PLATTSBURGH On the Adirondack Coast of Lake Champlain north of Lake Placid, is the vibrant city of Plattsburgh. From snowshoeing, dog sledding, scenic sleigh rides and competitive hockey, the area epitomizes a winter sports town. In close proximity to Montreal, an international flair resonates in this populated city. At the heart of the city, SUNY Plattsburgh ranks as one of America’s top small city colleges. TUPPER LAKE Situated at the crossroads of the Adirondacks between Lake Placid and Potsdam, Tupper Lake is known for its pristine lakes and endless outdoor recreation. Tupper Lake is home to the Wild Center, a 5,000 m2 (54,000 square feet) natural history center on a 130,000 m2 (31 acres) campus. POTSDAM AND CANTON With four universities between them, these villages are a bustle with students, academic excellence and sporting competitions. Each with a quaint village area, shops and welcoming hospitality, these communities are known for year-round recreation and competitive winter sports including Division I hockey.

ABOUT THE NEW YORK OLYMPIC REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY In 1981, the New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) formed under legislation enacted by the State of New York to operate, maintain and promote the facilities utilized during the 1980 Olympic Winter Games in the Lake Placid region. The concept was to combine facilities owned by the State of New York (Whiteface Ski Area in Wilmington and the bobsled, skeleton, luge, cross-country and biathlon facilities of the Olympic Sports Complex) with those owned by the Town of North Elba (the Olympic Center, the Olympic Speed Skating Oval and the Olympic Jumping Complex) for efficient and effective management. Gore Mountain Ski Area in North Creek was added in 1984, as well as the Lake Placid Olympic Training Center in 1988. The Lake Placid Olympic Museum was re-located to the Olympic Center in 1994. In April 2012, the State of New York transferred operations of Belleayre Ski Area, located in Highmount, New York, from the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to ORDA. The Authority took over the resort’s daily operations in November 2012. Since its inception, the Authority and its venues have hosted more than 450 major national and international events and

competitions. This includes 14 World Championships and more than 100 World Cups in alpine skiing, biathlon, bobsled, freestyle skiing, luge, skeleton, ski jumping, snowboarding, figure skating, and speedskating. Aligned with New York State’s Department of Economic Development, ORDA’s facilities play a key role in Governor Andrew Cuomo’s strategy of promoting tourism as a tool for economic development in the North Country. Most recently, the Governor’s administration invested a total of $28-million into ORDA’s three ski resorts to help transform them into year-round, world-class destinations and attract new skiers and snowboarders from around the globe. The investment builds on the current facilities at each mountain and is intended to create an unparalleled tourism destination for visitors. In addition, it expands opportunities for local small businesses in the surrounding areas and helps promote the State’s vast winter recreational opportunities. These investments continue to make ORDA’s facilities economic engines that drive growth and prosperity in the North Country and Catskill regions.

01 // GENERAL CONCEPT 1.1

PROPOSED DATES Which dates do you propose to host the Winter Universiade (including the opening and closing ceremonies), and what is your reason for this choice? We are proposing two possible sets of dates to host the Winter Universiade in 2023. The first option would be from January 19 to January 29, 2023. The second option would be from March 2 to March 12, 2023. These dates are subject to unknown conditions at this time. Dates will be in coordination with FISU, winter sports federations, NCAA, ORDA, the local school district, universities, and the business community. The international sports schedule, athlete participation levels, university volunteer support, and other variables will be taken into account to finalize. Neither set of dates is over a holiday time period. No conferences or other large sporting events will take place in the region one week prior to the dates proposed, throughout the Games, and 3 days post closing ceremonies.

1.2

POPULATION, SIZE AND UNIVERSITIES / COLLEGES Can you give some general information about the candidate city on: • Current population and estimated population during the year of the Winter Universiade; • Number of universities and students; • Size (in km2), geographic features;

Tupper Lake is a village west of Lake Placid and Saranac Lake, also in Franklin County, with a population of approximately 5,800. Together, Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake and Lake Placid comprise what is known as the Tri-Lakes region. All towns and villages within the Tri-Lakes lie within the boundaries of the Adirondack Park. Wilmington is another town in Essex County, New York with a population of approximately 1,250. The town covers a total area of 169.0 km2 (65.3 mi2) on the county’s north border, in between Lake Placid and Plattsburgh. It is in the Whiteface region of the Adirondack Park, and is home to Whiteface Mountain. Plattsburgh is a city north east of Lake Placid and the seat of Clinton County, New York with a population of approximately 20,000. The population of the unincorporated areas within the Town of Plattsburgh is 12,000 making the population for the immediate Plattsburgh region 32,000.

02 // POLITICAL ASPECTS 2.1

POLITICAL STRUCTURE Can you give a general description of the political structure in your country at national, regional and local level? The United States of America is a federated nation of Sovereign states in a republic. It is managed by the Federal Government of the United States consisting of three branches: Congress, Executive Branch and Judicial Branch, whose powers are vested by the U.S. Constitution in the Congress, the President of the United States, and the federal courts, respectively. The powers and duties of these branches are further defined by acts of Congress, comprising the House of Representatives and the Senate. The next level is the 50 sovereign states of which Lake Placid is in New York State. Each state is subject to the Constitution and U.S. Federal Law but has its own independent government with an elected legislature that mirrors the structure at the federal level. In the state of New York, the Governor is the elected constitutional officer, the head of the executive branch and the highest state office in New York. State governments only have jurisdiction within their borders. Disputes between the states are handled by the federal government.


A

STRUCTURE

The next level are the subdivisions of the states called counties and the last level, are the towns, villages and cities within the county. The village of Lake Placid is in the town of North Elba, in Essex County.

In contrast, the Senate is made up of two senators from each state, regardless of population. There are currently 100 senators (two from each of the 50 states), who each serve six-year terms.

Essex County is governed by a Board of Supervisors, elected by their respective towns. Board members select a Chairman and Vice Chairman. The Board meets on the first Monday of each month to discuss, debate and vote on items. The Chairman appoints supervisors to committees of the board that manage the activities of the various departments that make up the County or examine items of special interest. These committees include Human Services, Public Safety, Public Works, Finance, Tax Reduction and Mandate Relief, Economic Development and Planning, Personnel and Administration, and Legislative.

The next New York gubernatorial election will take place on November 6, 2018. Incumbent Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced his intention to seek a third term. The governor is popularly elected every four years by a plurality and has no term limit. Within the time period leading up to the 2023 Winter Universiade, there will be an additional election in November of 2022.

The Town of North Elba consists of five members, the Town Supervisor and four Council Members. Departments include: Public Notices, Town Clerk, Town Board, Real Property Services (Assessor), Black Fly Control, Finance/Budget Officer, Human Resource, Town Court, Building and Code Enforcement/Planning and Zoning, and Park District. The Lake Placid Village Mayor and Lake Placid Board of Trustees are elected officials and manage the following departments: Accounting and Billing, Code Enforcement, Electric, Fire, Highway, Police, Sewer and Water.

2.2

ELECTIONS Can you list all elections planned in your country at national, regional and local levels until and including the Winter Universiade year? What potential influence might be brought to the Winter Universiade by the elections? THE FEDERAL LEVEL The United States has a presidential system of government with the executive and legislature elected separately. An election for President of the United States occurs on a single day throughout the country every four years. Election Day is held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. Presidential elections use the Electoral College to win, therefore a candidate must receive a majority of electoral votes. The Electoral College votes are cast by individual states by a group of electors; each elector casts one electoral college vote.

STATE LEVEL

LOCAL LEVEL / MUNICIPALITIES Local elections will be taking place in November of 2017. Thereafter every two years, local elections will take place in 2019, 2021 and again after the 2023 Winter Universiade in November of 2023. Village elections take place every four years, with upcoming elections of the Mayor and Village Trustees to take place next in March of 2021.

2.3

PUBLIC AND SPORTS AUTHORITIES Which public and sports authorities in your country support your National University Sports Federation in the bidding project to organise a Winter Universiade? ADKNC Global Sports has engaged with public and sports authorities as part of the bid process and letters of support can be found in Section E of this dossier. The support for the Winter Universiade 2023 will build as the process progresses and as partners and supporters continue to be engaged. This spans government, sports authorities, educational institutions, regional tourism boards, and others. Additionally, regional public forums have taken place and will continue as part of this process.

The next election for the President of the United States, between now and the 2023 Winter Universiade, is Tuesday, November 3, 2020. This will be the 59th quadrennial U.S. presidential election. Voters will select presidential electors who in turn will either elect a new president and vice president through the electoral college or reelect the incumbents. The House of Representatives currently consists of 435 voting members, each of whom represents a congressional district. The number of representatives each state has in the House is based on each state’s population as determined in the most recent United States Census. All 435 representatives serve a two-year term. Each state receives a minimum of one representative in the House. Elections to the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives will take place on November 6, 2018.

03 // LEGAL ASPECTS & PUBLIC OPINION 3.1

GENERAL OPINION Can you describe the general opinion of the candidate city regarding the project of hosting the Winter Universiade? Are students informed and involved in the project? The ADKNC Global Sports Committee, consisting of over 30 individuals across government, not-for-profits, and business owners, are motivated and very interested in the Adirondack North Country region hosting the Winter Universiade 2023 Games. Lake Placid and the surrounding communities are versed in supporting large sporting events and opening their hearts and homes to the sporting community. Well beyond the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games, and the Winter Universiade 1972, Lake Placid has since hosted over one hundred major sporting events including annual World Cups and World Championships in numerous sports year round. Area organisations and businesses are engaged and excited to potentially host the Winter Universiade 2023 competitions here in Lake Placid. This comes with the understanding that these Games and the efforts made in preparation over the next five years will provide a legacy to the community. School districts, colleges and universities, sports organisations, cultural organisations, and others, will be a part of the initiative to bring the Winter Universiade 2023 to Lake Placid. This will ensure that from the ground level we are listening, engaging and supporting a smart future for our community.

LAWS, CUSTOMS & REGULATIONS Do any laws, customs or regulations exist in the candidate city or country which could limit, restrict or interfere with the organisation of the Winter Universiade in any way? If yes, please provide more explanation. If not, please provide a covenant from all authorities concerned by your project guaranteeing the following: • the understanding and agreement that all commitments made are binding; • taking the necessary steps so that the city fulfils its obligations completely. There are currently no laws, customs or practices that would hinder the Winter Universiade 2023, as long as participants qualify to enter the U.S. We understand the commitments are binding and we propose to fulfill the obligations completely.

3.3

LEGAL STRUCTURE Which legal structure will the Organising Committee have? The ADKNC Global Sports Committee currently supporting the World Universiade 2023 bid dossier will transition to a 501(c)(3) legal entity. Within six months of attribution and once assigned by the U.S. International University Sports Federation, an Organising Committee will be formed and will appoint liaison officers. This group will be accountable for the continued planning, implementation, compliance and reporting of the Winter Universiade 2023 throughout the evolution phases. The Organising Committee will establish a structure based on the recommendation of FISU for the functional areas and customization for our operation.

04 // IMMIGRATION & CUSTOMS PROCEDURES 4.1

IMMIGRATION What are the immigration procedures currently in force in your country to obtain an entry visa? The Visa Waiver Program (VWP), administered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in conjunction with the State Department, permits citizens of participating countries to travel to the United States for business or tourism for stays of up to 90 days without a visa. As of April 1, 2016, you must have an e-Passport to use the VWP. An e-Passport is an enhanced secure passport with an embedded electronic chip. For more information visit: https://www.dhs.gov/visa-waiver-program-requirements All persons arriving at a port-of-entry to the United States are subject to inspection by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers. CBP officers will conduct the Immigration, Customs and Agriculture components of the Inspection Process. Additional information regarding the Inspection Process is located in the Code of Federal Regulations. The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is an automated system that determines the eligibility of visitors to travel to the United States under the VWP. Authorization via ESTA does not determine whether a traveler is admissible to the United States. CBP officers determine admissibility upon travelers’ arrival. The ESTA application collects biographic information and answers to VWP eligibility questions. ESTA applications may be submitted at any time prior to travel, though it is recommended that travelers apply as soon as they begin preparing travel plans or prior to purchasing airline tickets. For more information visit: https://www.CBP.gov

ENTRY VISAS Can you guarantee free of charge entry visas (when applicable) into your country for all accredited persons? Please specify in your candidature files with detailed procedure and plan. For citizens of participating countries to travel to the United States for stays up to 90 days, an entry visa is not required. Citizens of non-participating countries are not eligible to travel to the United States under the VWP if they are applying for admission with passports from these countries. Non-visa waiver countries will be coordinated through the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and government relations. The ESTA carries a charge for processing and authorization. More information: https://www.cbp.gov/travel/international-visitors/esta

4.3

VACCINATIONS What kind of vaccination is required to enter the country? Please submit a list of the countries concerned by these specific health and vaccination rules. Currently there are no vaccination requirements for visitors entering the United States.

4.4

CUSTOMS Can you guarantee that customs formalities will be facilitated for the event? Could you specify your regulations concerning the import of special products and equipment required by accredited persons to carry on their duties at the Winter Universiade: e.g. firearms and ammunition for athletes, photographic and audiovisual equipment, medical equipment, computer equipment, etc.? Customs formalities will be facilitated by the CBP. It enforces hundreds of laws for 40 other government agencies. These agencies prohibit unsafe items from entering the United States. CBP officers are always at ports of entry and assume the responsibility of protecting America from all threats. The products CBP prevent from entering the United States are those that would injure community health, public safety, American workers, children, or domestic plant and animal life, or those that would defeat our national interests. Prohibited means the item is forbidden by law to enter the United States. Examples of prohibited items are dangerous toys, cars that don’t protect their occupants in a crash, bush meat, or illegal substances. Restricted means that special licenses or permits are required from a federal agency before the item is allowed to enter the United States. Examples of restricted items include firearms, certain fruits and vegetables, animal products, animal by products, and some animals. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is a law enforcement agency in the United States Department of Justice that protects our communities from violent criminals, criminal organisations, the illegal use and trafficking of firearms, the illegal use and storage of explosives, acts of arson and bombings, acts of terrorism, and the illegal diversion of alcohol and tobacco products. They partner with communities, industries, law enforcement, and public safety agencies to safeguard the public we serve through information sharing, training, research, and use of technology. In order to receive a permit for the temporary importation of a rifle, the ATF requires the owner of the firearm to complete a form, free of charge. This form also includes permission for the ammunition needed for the event. It is recommended that all participants who could potentially be on the team submit forms 8 weeks prior to arrival. It is illegal to bring drug paraphernalia into the United States unless prescribed for authentic medical conditions such as diabetes. Narcotics and certain other drugs with a high potential for abuse - Rohypnol, GHB and Fen-Phen, to name a few - may not be brought into the United States, and there are severe penalties for trying to do so. If medicines are needed that contain potentially addictive drugs or narcotics (e.g., some cough medicines, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, antidepressants or stimulants), please reference the CBP website for recommendations and the enforcement policy for personal use quantities. CBP will not examine film bought abroad intended to bring back unless the officer has reason to believe it contains prohibited material. You will not be charged duty on film bought in the United States and exposed abroad, whether it is developed or not. However, film purchased and developed abroad counts as a dutiable item. It is recommended to speak to CBP prior to departure as to whether certain items are prohibited or restricted.

Can you guarantee you will be able to recruit sufficient sports organisation personnel and technical officials to ensure the smooth running of the Winter Universiade? What sources will be used and what steps have already been taken?

Can you guarantee that you will organise test events prior to the Winter Universiade? Please present your general plan on dates and levels of the test events.

SPORTS PERSONNEL & TECHNICAL OFFICIALS GUARANTEE

The Olympic venues built for the 1980 Winter Olympic Games have been under the management of the New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) since 1982. ORDA was created by New York State following the games to manage, market, maintain and provide first class facilities for training and competitions at all venues. This organisation and its mission are still firmly in place today, providing an economic engine for the entire region through increased tourism and jobs. Many of these jobs are year round at all of the various Olympic venues. These well trained professionals maintain and manage the venues and assure that training and competitions are run efficiently. Each individual venue has a team of dedicated and knowledgeable local and regional volunteers. Numerous assigned officials from various federations are well acquainted with venue staff, volunteers and facilities. This team is in currently in place with a waitlist of new members.

6.5

TOP-QUALITY SPORTS EQUIPMENT GUARANTEE

TEST EVENTS GUARANTEE

Numerous events are calendared on an annual basis including Empire State Winter Games, World Cup Freestyle (aerials and moguls), collegiate alpine and nordic championships, national alpine and nordic championships, ice hockey tournaments and championships, figure skating events such as Skate America and synchronized skating championships, various olympic tryouts, etc. Many of these events are routinely held throughout both summer and winter months and would qualify as test events. Events are the business and interest of ORDA, therefore we can guarantee that successful test events will take place across all disciplines prior to the start of the 2023 Lake Placid Winter Universiade. The venues will be ready and used to test equipment, and train personnel and volunteers under competitive conditions. These test events have not been planned in detail as of this time, however we can guarantee that they will be carried out in all disciplines between 2021 and 2022. As outlined in section 6.3, our facilities are regularly utilized for championship events and we will ensure that is continued through the testing phase and World Universiade events in 2023.

Can you guarantee that you will provide the top-quality sports equipment, sports floorings in accordance with the FISU Minimum Requirements and those of the International Sports Federations? Please provide further details in your candidature files. Yes, ADKNC Global Sports guarantees that the venues will provide the top-quality sports infrastructure and conditions in accordance with the FISU Minimum Requirements and those of the International Sports Federations. Our long tradition of hosting international sporting events as seen in Table 4 coupled with ORDA’s existing administration and operational knowledge, skills and expertise provides the foundation and confidence to effectively provide this guarantee.

07 // SPORTS FACILITIES OLYMPIC CENTER The Olympic Center includes three indoor ice surfaces: the 1932 Jack Shea Arena (International size), the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena (International size and home of the “Miracle on Ice”), the USA rink (a NHL regulation ice surface) as well as a conference center. Additionally, the Olympic Center consists of an outdoor speed skating oval, namely the Olympic Speed Skating Oval. The Olympic Center is a world-class, year-round training facility for figure skating, curling and ice hockey, and seasonally for speed skating. The Olympic Speed Skating Oval is one of three refrigerated 400-meter skating ovals in the USA and the site of Eric Heiden’s record five gold medals during the 1980 Lake Placid Olympic Winter Games. It is open during the winter months December through March - for competitive training, events, and recreational skating. The oval has hosted local, regional and international speed skating training and competition events along with regularly scheduled public skating. Over 15,000 people skated on the Oval in the 2016-2017 season. ORDA has recently purchased LED lighting and track lights to provide more visibility on the ice. This past season the Olympic Center hosted programs and tournaments conducted by Can/Am Hockey, Canadian Hockey Enterprise (CHE) and Northwood School, with large numbers of teams and their families in attendance. The center also hosts practices and games for local public schools. ORDA recently collaborated with USA Hockey’s ADM program to host a Cross Ice Mite Jamboree (U8), which was attended by 18 teams from around New York State. The inaugural Miracle Holiday Classic was held in December of 2016, where fifteen teams from the northeast and Canada participated in four divisions. Last season the Olympic Center also co-hosted the New Year’s College Hockey Classic with Middlebury College. This Division III tournament featured four teams. Along with the collegiate tournament, eight North Country youth hockey teams participated in clinics with the college hockey coaches and players. The ECAC Men’s Hockey Championships returned in 2017 for their second March tournament of a three-year commitment. The tournament had strong attendance and received a warm Lake Placid welcome. The figure skating legacy in Lake Placid continues to remain strong, particularly in the summer. This year there were just

over 400 skaters in the summer figure skating program as well as 119 skaters here for synchronized skating camps. ORDA’s two summer figure skating competitions are thriving – both the Lake Placid Figure Skating Championships in June, and the Lake Placid Ice Dance Championships in August, had over 350 competitors each. The Olympic Center has also hosted the Eastern Synchronized Skating Championships, which brought approximately 2,500 athletes to the village and surrounding towns. In 2016 the Olympic Center hosted the North Atlantic Regional Figure Skating Championships, the first level of the U.S. Figure Skating Qualifying competition structure. In conjunction with the Lake Placid Ice Dance Championships, the Olympic Center also hosted the Lake Placid Ice Dance International. Just recently, the Olympic Center also hosted Skate America. In May 2010, a state of the art Lake Placid Conference Center was built on the north end of the Olympic Center. With 90,000 square feet of meeting space, this is an ideal site which also supports large sporting events. In February, the Olympic Center’s Herb Brooks Arena said goodbye to the only scoreboard that has ever hung from its rafters. The original scoreboard, built and installed by Daktronics, was lowered for the final time in February, making way for a new state of the art Daktronics LED board. This board’s four full screens provide upto-date game stats, replays, highlights and contests designed for fan interaction. In addition to the Herb Brooks Arena, Daktronics also installed new scoreboards in both the USA and 1932 rinks. The Olympic Center is replacing its R-22 refrigerant with environmentally friendly R-407F, as R-22 production stops after next year. The EPA forced manufacturers to stop producing it because it damages the Ozone when released. Various companies have produced a replacement refrigerant, some of which are more successful than others. Mollenbergh Betz, who provides the Olympic Center’s refrigeration, encouraged the Olympic Center to use R-407f made by Honeywell. Other capital projects the Olympic Center has undertaken include installing LED lights in the 1932 Rink, upgrading security cameras and upgrading the compressor room where Frick Microprocessors are being installed.

OLYMPIC SKI JUMPING COMPLEX This complex is home to winter and summer ski jumping, freestyle skiing and a Nordic ski loop, and was the site for the 1932 Olympic 70k ski jumping competition and the 1980 Olympic 90k and 70k ski jumping events. Originally built in 2008 and expanded in 2014, the complex’s 2.5-kilometer roller loop and biathlon range is the summer home for American cross country and biathlon athlete training. The shooting range is well protected from the wind. Athletes shoot and ski in a variety of weather with very little change in the conditions on the range. Today, the complex comprises 120k and 90k ski jump towers, hills that measure 48k, 20k, and 15k used for development programs and the Freestyle Aerial training hill. The site includes a permanent snowmaking system, an integrated scoring system and a speed meter. The majestic K90 and K120 towers dress the Adirondack skyline as you head into Lake Placid. The 120-meter tower (approximately 26 stories high) is complete with a glass look-out elevator where the public can ascend to the athlete start tower for a scenic lookout of the Adirondack High Peaks and beyond, as well the outside start platform. Visitors approach the elevator via a chairlift, which parallels the steep landing hill. Ceramic tiles and plastic mats allow athletes jump during nonsnow months. This venue hosted the 2017 U.S. Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined National Championships during the fall Flaming Leaves Festival. The Nordic Combined portion was staged on the roller loop. The freestyle training center logged over 4,000 skier days in the summer of 2016, and in 2017. The U.S. Ski Team continues a freestyle development program in Lake Placid, which has seen tremendous World Cup success with two alumni winning the Overall World Cup and 2017 World Championship titles for both men and women. The United States biathlon and development teams maintain a year-round residency program in Lake Placid at the Olympic Training Center. The Ski Jumping Complex also provides snowmaking on the range loop, accomplished through a partnership with the United States Olympic Committee and USA Biathlon. The loops have been widely used by all skier groups, including increased usage from other sport groups, such as regional and national Nordic cross-country programs, and U.S. Ski Team Nordic programs. During the winter, a snowmaking system helps to keep the loop covered with at least three feet of artificial snow maintained through mid-March. The Ski Jumps and Freestyle winter aerial world cup hills are FIS Homologated. Summer aerialists practice moves by landing in an aerated 750,000-gallon pool. During winter months, “kickers” and a steep landing hill are utilized for freestyle training and worldclass aerial events. Renovating the Olympic Jumping Complex base lodge has been one of the venue’s primary capital projects. Main structural work and additions to the lodge were finished last summer and new electrical service, upgraded plumbing, kitchen facilities and a new entrance for guests that is ADA compliant were completed. Work continues towards the installation of an elevator and second floor deck. Repairs and upgrades to the complex’s snow grooming fleet and replacement of the aerial pool’s trampoline are other items on the capital project list.

from local high school races to university Winter Ski Carnivals, the NCAA National Championships, and the Lake Placid Nordic Festival. NYSEF Nordic elite and recreational athletes of all ages, as well as other local ski teams use Mount Van Hoevenberg on a regular basis.

The Nordic ski center leases the TechnoAlpin Snowfactory. As the only location in North America to have this machine, snowmaking operations continue even in challenging conditions, stockpiling snow that is eventually spread out throughout the Nordic center’s core loops and stadium area.

There have been several capital projects completed at the Olympic Sports Complex, primarily involving infrastructure improvements to the combined track. These include upgrades to the sidewalls and roof systems, improved lighting in Curve-10 and upgrading the ammonia plant. The venue also purchased new Fleet Vehicles. The track continues to be one of the busiest in the world and often recognized for the quality of its ice and the hospitality of the staff. The management and staff continue to promote energy efficiency through infrastructure improvements, which in turn allow longer seasons and fewer days closed due to inclement weather.

Nordic ski and Biathlon: The Nordic ski and biathlon center consists of 50 kilometers (32 miles) of cross-country ski trails, a biathlon range and a public lodge. In addition to a public crosscountry ski facility and a training facility for biathlon and crosscountry athletes, the trails are used during the summer months as a mountain bike center.

Whiteface Mountain Trail Map

WHITEFACE MOUNTAIN Whiteface Mountain Ski Center is a year-round recreational, day-use resort located in Wilmington, New York, 14 km from Lake Placid. It is owned by the State of New York and is managed by the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) under a Memorandum of Understanding with the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). Whiteface Mountain was the site of the 1980 Winter Olympics alpine events and logs the greatest vertical drop (3,166’) in the eastern United States. Whiteface maintains 11 lifts and 87 trails with a variety of terrain. The Cloudsplitter Gondola whisks passengers from the base lodge to the summit of Little Whiteface in just 12 minutes and offers passenger rides yearround. Whiteface offers a wide variety of competitive and recreational snow sports activities during the winter season for all levels of participants, including alpine ski racing, freestyle

skiing and snowboarding competitions and terrain park events. Whiteface hosts a multitude of events in conjunction with various partners including NYSEF (New York Ski Education Foundation) and United States Ski and Snowboard Association. A few highlight events this past season were FIS World Cup moguls, and NCAA skiing regional competitions. The mountain has race trails for Downhill, Super G, Giant Slalom and Slalom. Efficient snowmaking is a top priority at Whiteface. In 2017, it added 11 mobile low energy HKD vipers, eight Nivis airless guns and a retro fleet of 23 Ratnik sky giants to a medium energy double head to its snowmaking fleet. These purchases were possible through energy efficiency rebates that averaged 4050 percent of the project cost. The mountain also purchased two new Techno Alpine fan guns and expanded its fan gun infrastructure so that more high-efficiency, low- energy guns can be added in the future.

Appleton Arena is a 3,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Canton, New York and home to the St. Lawrence University Skating Saints NCAA Division I ice hockey teams. It was named for Judge Charles W. Appleton, class of 1897, the main benefactor of the arena. Appleton Arena first opened in January 1951 and was remodeled in the late 1970s and early 1980s to its current configuration. In 1999, the facade of the arena was renovated to allow for improved locker rooms (particularly for the growing women’s program) and a larger lobby. Additionally, the playing surface was expanded to 85 feet by 200 feet, and a weight training facility was added. These renovations were specifically designed to improve the arena while only minimally changing the traditional wooden bleachers and general ambiance of the interior. In 2011, SUNY Canton opened a new, state-of-the-art Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center. The Roos House facility features several athletic courts, a pool and a fitness center, meeting spaces and an ice arena with a state-of- the-art refrigeration system, stadium seating and locker room facilities. The ice arena is home to the NCAA Division III ice hockey teams. Additional rinks include SUNY Potsdam’s Maxcy Hall, Saranac Lake Civic Center and Tupper Lake Civic Center.

Visitors can also experience a combination of history and new amenities at the celebrated North Creek Ski Bowl, one of the first commercial ski areas and organised ski patrols in the country. There they can find a Nordic center complete with grooming, snowmaking, lights and skiing available both day and night, which interconnects to the rest of Gore’s trail network.

Nashville, TN. Presented by SKI Magazine, the Golden Eagle is the industry’s most prestigious award for sustainability and Gore’s broad range of environmental stewardship across several areas of its operation was integral to its win. Gore Mountain successfully demonstrated that a growing resort can at the same time be sustainable (its acreage and uphill capacity have increased 131-percent and 142-percent respectively over the last 20 years). Projects that contributed to this award were Gore’s contracting of two 25-year solar power purchasing agreements, strategic trail modifications to increase operational efficiency, energysaving snowmaking investments, creative repurposing of buildings, the redevelopment of historic trails, various environmental education efforts, and Gore’s increased service of locally sourced foods.

In 2016, Gore Mountain was awarded the esteemed Golden Eagle for Overall Environmental Excellence by a ski area at the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) Annual Conference in

*We will further evaluate and discuss with FISU the expansion of the USA rink and resulting changes to planned sports and events. In planning the rink schedule, the 1980 and 1932 rinks would have use for multiple events and training at multiple hours. Rinks will be multi purpose for training and events. Having a third international rink that has seating capacity is a need for these Games. Synchronized skating requires less days and would be scheduled at the beginning of the games possibly sharing a rink with another discipline. The USA rink in its current state is only a training option, but again this rink needs to be reconstructed to meet the needs for these Games.

In case venues need to be constructed permanently or temporarily, please provide detailed description of the projects, including financial planning and outlined schedule.

How will the concept of sustainable development be taken into consideration when building new sports facilities?

VENUE CONSTRUCTION PLAN

Details of the permanent or temporary work have been added to table 7.2 under “Type of Works Required” for each venue. Financial information and schedules are noted where applicable or under evaluation. The following are the planned metrics and specifics of the proposed plans for the Saranac Lake Curling facility: • Land: Property owners directly across the road from the new resort being built have pledged the land to the project. • Construction: The plan is to construct a new building specifically for the use of the curling. • Dimensions: Approximately 30m x 60m.

NEW SPORTS FACILITIES / SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

The Lake Placid region winter sport infrastructure will require upgrades and expansion, as well as a new construction for curling and housing. These changes will provide a high degree of sports infrastructure sustainability for a Winter Universiade, and help elevate Lake Placid as a host for world-class events for years to come. With the upgrades, expansion and new facilities our focus will be on developing efficiencies and improvements that minimize impact and provide benefit for the regional sports community. These include infrastructure improvements, transportation linkages, broadband expansion, snowmaking modernization, cross country improvements with equipment and trail networks, frost rails at the ski jumps, energy efficiency, and much more.

• Sheets: There will be a minimum of 4 curling sheets with the possibility of 5 depending on final design. • Tribune: The venue will include a tribune with benches, scoreboards and timing equipment. • Availability: The venue will be dedicated to curling for the World University Games and a legacy for future events. • Changing rooms: There will be 2 changing rooms for both men and women. • Spectators: Seating of 1,500-2,000 will be available for large events. • Press and media: Seating and setup for members of the media will be available. • Electric service: This venue will be built with the appropriate amount of power to handle the increased requirements of media for large events. • Lighting: Venue will have at least 1,500 LUX for HDTV production. • Additional Amenities: -- The venue will have on site parking and will also be located very close to the NCCC college campus which can provide significant overflow parking for large events. -- The venue will be directly across the road from a 93 room resort hotel with two restaurants and spa facilities. -- The Hotel Saranac is only minutes away where participants and others can quickly shuttle back and forth. -- Saranac Lake is 14 km away from other venues in Lake Placid, NY.

08 // ATHLETE’S VILLAGE 8.1

CONCEPTS Please describe your concept for the Athletes’ Village or other accommodation (university campus, hotels, etc.), including the following: • Ownership (e.g. government, private sector, university, etc.) • Location and dimensions • General layout with all supporting facilities Please specify who will be responsible for the provision of facilities at the Athletes’ Village or other accommodation for the Winter Universiade. The immediate Lake Placid area has approximately 3,000 rooms in privately owned hotels and rental properties. Surrounding regional towns and cities have over 6,000 rooms (hotels/motels/ inns/B&B’s). As the host city, Lake Placid, along with regional towns and villages, will provide accommodations to athletes, delegation officials, technical officials, FISU family, media, volunteers and spectators. Lake Placid proposes two scenarios for the Athletes’ Village, of which one will be determined and finalized with further planning and feedback from FISU. “LEGACY ACCOMMODATIONS” CONCEPT The first scenario requires the conversion of an existing property into an Athlete’s Village, as well as the construction of new housing to support the Games. This in turn will provide a legacy to the community to support long-term housing needs. The property and facility will provide dining, the International Zone, and a short transportation route to Lake Placid’s village center. The Athlete’s Village location will house a significant number of competitors and delegations in a Residential Zone. Additionally, athletes and respective delegation officials will be accommodated at the state-of-the-art Olympic Training Center, 4.5 km from the Athlete’s Village and 2.5 km from the center of Lake Placid. Two sport clusters, Curling and Alpine, will have hotel accommodations at their venues, just 12 km and 16 km respectively from the proposed Athlete’s Village. The sports cluster accommodations concept will provide appropriate supporting facilities on location and transportation to and from the Athlete’s Village and Lake Placid center for athlete services, cultural enrichment and entertainment. Additional accommodations for participants will be determined once the new housing and athlete’s development concept is furthered. Each accommodation area will supply supporting facilities including one meeting room, one medical room per delegation, shared medical and meeting room(s) for smaller delegations, ice, laundry, and recreational/sport facilities. The Olympic Training Center (OTC) has 11 multi-purpose rooms, two laundry rooms, and a number of equipment storage rooms. The Athlete Center at the OTC, adjoining the housing complex, contains a 20,000 square foot gymnasium. The kitchen and

dining facilities are located in the center and offer athletes a wide variety of nutritious foods and snacks. Also located in this area are administrative offices, sports medicine services, a weight room, sports science-testing lab and lobby area with reception and two large meeting rooms. The FISU family will have accommodations at the Crowne Plaza hotel, within walking distance of Lake Placid center. This location will also serve as the FISU headquarters. The Crowne Plaza will provide the required number of rooms and ample space for the FISU General Office, FISU meeting room as additional meeting rooms as needed. International technical officials will have single room accommodations in a 3 or 4-star hotel. National technical officials will also have dedicated hotel accommodations. VIPs, VIP guests and media will have accommodations in Lake Placid hotels, and volunteers and spectators will have accommodation options in hotels and rental properties in surrounding areas from Lake Placid to Plattsburgh, Potsdam and Canton with a transportation system in place. The Olympic Center is within Lake Placid’s village center and a primary venue for the games and ceremonies. Lake Placid provides beautiful winter scenery and other experiential activities such as dog sled rides, a toboggan chute, and ice skating on the lake. A festive atmosphere permeates the quaint Lake Placid center and will be enhanced by a Winter Universiade Park located in a central location providing cultural enrichment, events and entertainment. We propose to also have additional indoor and outdoor venues and pop-up venues for events, including Mid’s Park, Mirror Lake, the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and venue facilities. “HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS” CONCEPT In this scenario, the Lake Placid center will essentially serve as the Athlete’s Village and a centralized location for services, enrichment and entertainment. This corridor will be from Saranac Avenue, along Main Street, to the Lake Placid Conference Center, along the shore of Mirror Lake. Hotel and and private rental accommodations are concentrated and in close proximity to this area. In this concept the athletes delegations will also be accommodated at the Olympic Training Center, at two to three sport cluster accommodations at venues, and minimal new housing close to Lake Placid center. The remaining hotel accommodations and temporary housing from Lake Placid to Plattsburgh, Potsdam, Canton, Malone, and the Lake George region will be formalized to accommodate technical officials, media, volunteers and spectators, with the FISU family and FISU Office located at the Crowne Plaza hotel. An efficient transportation system will be provided to participating housing locations and outlying sport clusters, as well as accommodations that are further from Lake Placid center. In both scenarios, proposed new housing and rooms will be located in Lake Placid and constructed in the form of apartments, townhomes or condos, with the same quality and standard that existing rooms provide. The rooms will fill the additional capacity needed for the games and provide an important legacy to the community in the form of new housing.

SERVICES

Conference Center at Lake Placid In both concepts, the Conference Center at Lake Placid will serve as the Welcome Center with accreditation services. In the “Hotel Accommodations” concept, the Conference Center will also provide additional athlete services. This location is attached to Olympic Center venue and within a short driving distance to ceremonies, accommodations and venues. The Conference Center opened in May 2011, and was designed to seamlessly flow with its location in the Adirondacks, while keeping contemporary meeting market needs in mind. Technologically savvy and environmentally sound, the Center offers over 3,344 square meters of flexible meeting and exhibition space, with a total of 12 breakout rooms available for concurrent sessions, state of the art audio visual technology, a ballroom, and a full service production kitchen.

8.3

DINING HALL & CATERING SERVICES Can you briefly explain what kind of structure is planned for the athletes’ dining hall, its dimension, seating capacity as well as its location? In both of the proposed concepts, participants will be served breakfast at the assigned accommodation. In the “Legacy Accommodations” concept, breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served at the Athlete’s Village, Olympic Training Center or respective sports cluster venue and hotel where the participant resides. Lunch will also be available at venues. Seating capacity and dimensions will be evaluated.

The Center’s naturally lit space and views of its Adirondack surroundings will stimulate creativity, dynamic meetings, student enrichment, and encourage competitive play. The Conference Center at Lake Placid is a green building, constructed with its sheltered Adirondack setting, and the health and comfort of its guests in mind. Construction techniques adhere to the criteria set forth by the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design consortium) and incorporate optimized energy performance, renewable, recycled materials and natural daylight.

In the “Hotel Accommodations” concept, breakfast will be served at the hotel accommodation or nearby restaurant. Participants will be served lunch and dinner at one central location, the Conference Center at Lake Placid. Participants at sports clusters or at venues will also have access and transportation to lunch and dinner at the Conference Center dining location. Lunch will also be available at venues. As the Olympic Regional Development Authority’s exclusive in-house caterer, Centerplate is renowned for its impeccable, world-class service, truly delectable cuisine, and a superb selection of menus that can be customized to any event, special occasion, and budget.

8.2

Lake Placid will work with recommendations from FISU to provide a healthy, well-rounded, and diverse menu.

ATHLETE’S ACCOMMODATIONS CAPACITY REQUIREMENTS FISU requires a maximum of three persons sharing one bathroom (equivalent to one shower, one washbasin and one toilet). Can you guarantee your Athletes’ Village will meet the FISU minimum requirements? Please enter the number of rooms and beds in the following table. Yes, we can guarantee that the accommodations will meet the FISU requirements for number of rooms and beds, and one bathroom per maximum three persons. As of this time the concept has not been finalized. Further evaluation will be conducted and new apartments and beds for the athletes and delegations will be planned to meet the requirements. Tables 8 and 9 illustrate the existing hotel infrastructure specifically.

SERVICES

10// TRANSPORTATION 10.1

10.2

Can you give a description of the existing transportation infrastructure in your candidate city?

Can you guarantee the number of vehicles and transportation system will meet the needs of Winter Universiade transportation services? Based on the FISU Minimum Requirements and your existing transportation system, please explain how you intend to implement the Winter Universiade transportation system.

EXISTING TRANSPORTATION SUMMARY

Lake Placid is a walkable village, and as such, the Olympic Center venues including the Olympic Speed Skating Oval and the Lake Placid Conference Center, hotels, restaurants and shops located along Main Street are in close proximity. Lake Placid Village currently runs a free shuttle service to all of the venues at designated times throughout the day. Additionally, Essex County Transportation offers public transit serving Essex County with connections to Clinton and Franklin Counties’ public transit. Lake Placid is also served by train (via Westport, New York), bus and car transportation from Interstate 87, New York State Route 73, New York State Route 86, and New York State Route 9N. County Roads 21, 31 and 35 also serve the community. Lake Placid is served by many nearby airports. Plattsburgh International Airport (PBG) is an approximately one-hour drive, while Burlington International Airport (BTV), Albany International Airport (ALB) and Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) are each roughly two hours from Lake Placid. Additionally, Lake Placid is approximately five hours from Northeast metropolitan areas including New York City and Boston; and less than 4 hours from Ottawa, Canada and Syracuse, NY. The Adirondack Regional Airport in Saranac Lake is just 26 kilometers from the village of Lake Placid. Lake Placid Airport, three kilometers south of the village, does not offer scheduled service but chartered flights are available upon request.

TRANSPORTATION GUARANTEE

We can guarantee that the transportation system will meet the needs of the Winter Universiade. We plan to engage transportation experts with infrastructure design experience. Technical requirements for the number and type of vehicles necessary will be identified to serve the needs of all client groups, and to address any transportation network constraints. This will be done by understanding the scheduling, origins and destinations, and routing of the various shuttles then assigning them to specific locations, routes and times. Service providers will be identified and contracted with to fulfill the requirements of the plan as needed. A Transportation Management center will be established for monitoring and scheduling during the event. There are many levels of transportation needs for an event of this size and we intend to have a well designed and comprehensive plan that meets the requirements.

We propose to designate Plattsburgh International Airport (PBG) as the Point of Entry for the Games. PBG currently has 3 airlines: Allegiant Air, Spirit Airlines, and PenAir. As of this writing transportation to and from the airport directly is offered by local cab companies as well as rideshare services, Lyft and Uber. Shuttle companies include Ground Force 1, Premier Coach and Adirondack Trailways. PBG is working with the rideshare community to allow for designated drop-off and pick up locations. Security at PBG is state of the art being one of only three airports in the US to have advance exit lanes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; offering added security for any breach issues. PBG is a bilingual airport with French Canadian signage throughout the terminal. The Welcome Center, kiosk, and signage space a can easily be adapted to needs of the game. PBG has been open since 2008 as part of the redevelopment of the Historic Plattsburgh Air Force Base that was closed in 1995. Since then this airport has grown into a powerhouse of the North Country offering connectivity to a variety of US locations. The airport has been consistently evolving with a $55 million expansion process recently complete with additional gates, updated security and increased baggage facilities. Along with planned future expansion, this will allow PBG to grow its services and offerings while staying on the cutting edge of Air Service Development. PBG recently started construction of its Federal Inspection Station (FIS). This facility has already been approved by the US Customs and Border Protection, allowing PBG to offer and receive international flights with the ability to clear US Customs needs. This project is slated to be completed by mid-2019. PBG is also under contract with Tailwinds Concessions, a national company that will soon begin work on a full-service restaurant on the concourse (the secure side of the terminal). New York State recently awarded PBG a grant for $34 million for continued updates and additions. One of the projects includes upgrades to the General Aviation (GA) facility. The new structure slated to open at the end of 2019 has been approved by the US Customs and Border Protection to facilitate GA travel, both nationally and internationally. The grant also includes moving the bus station currently located in the south end of Plattsburgh to the Airport Terminal, making it easier for travelers to get to and from the airport and area lodging. Greyhound Service and Adirondack Trailways Service is available in the area daily, with lines offering connecting services to many destinations in their grid systems. This relocation is set to start in 2019 and be completed by 2021. PBG is part of the Essential Air Service (EAS), a U.S. government program enacted to guarantee that small communities in the United States maintain a minimal level of scheduled air service that otherwise would not be profitable. The contract currently in place with PenAir, (a subsidy of Alaska Air) providing service to Boston, is up in 2018. PBG is currently in discussion with other airlines to bid on this service and is hopeful it will go to an airline that can offer greater connectivity. The bid for this service should go out by the end of 2017 and the service provided will be named by mid-2018. LAKE PLACID // 2023

At the end of 2016, PBG signed on with Volaire Aviation Consulting, a national firm based out of Oregon with over 100 years in air service recruitment. Volaire is working actively with PBG management to grow its service offerings, including air service both nationally and internationally. The team consistently goes to air service trade shows and meets with airlines to discuss the possibility of offering services at PBG. PBG works very aggressively to recruit top airlines and is at over 5 international shows a year. We strongly believe we will see a legacy carrier and international carrier at PBG before 2023. An additional concept that may be utilized is designating ALB and/or YUL as points of entry. The Adirondack Regional Airport and the Lake Placid airport will be the point of entry for charter flights. Athletes will be transported from the Point of Entry to the Welcome Center in Lake Placid. Once athletes, officials, and guests arrive in Lake Placid, transportation will be provided in and around the region for the Games.

Adirondack Health will serve as the main health care system for the Winter Universiade based on its breadth of services and close proximity to most of the venues. Additionally, Champlain Valley Physician’s Hospital in Plattsburgh and Canton-Potsdam Hospital in Potsdam will also serve as hospitals for the games. Adirondack Health is the family of facilities and individuals who have provided sophisticated care to the Adirondack region of northern New York and beyond for the past 100 years. They include: Adirondack Medical Center/Saranac Lake, Adirondack Medical Center/Lake Placid, Mountain Health Center (Keene), Lake Placid Health Center, Saranac Lake Health Center, Tupper Lake Health Center, Mercy Living Center (Tupper Lake), and Adirondack Dental Service (Lake Placid). The highly trained and compassionate individuals who work at these facilities provide a full range of medical, surgical and long-term care services. Adirondack Health is the only full-service health system in the Adirondack Park and offers 24-hour medical and emergency services. Adirondack Health is currently constructing a leading-edge surgical services wing at Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake and a medical fitness center in Lake Placid. Both facilities will be completed in 2018. The surgical services wing will consist of six operating suites (including a hybrid suite) and advanced medical imaging capabilities. Adirondack Health’s Lake Placid Health and Medical Fitness Center will be situated directly across Old Military Road from the U.S. Olympic Training Center, and cater to the full spectrum of patients - from elite, world-class athletes to local senior citizens working to manage diabetes or other chronic health conditions.

Additionally, helicopter services from North Country Life Flight of Lake Clear will be on call. Helicopters fly to one of two regional trauma centers: University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, VT or Albany Medical Center in Albany, NY. There are two pharmacies right in Lake Placid and an Urgent Care within 16 km of all venues. The Main Medical Center will be determined based on the final accommodation and athlete’s village concept. Each sports venue will accommodate the medical support requirements for each international sport.

SECURITY SYSTEMS & PROTOCOLS Which security system will you install to ensure the security and safety of participants at the sports and non-sports venues? How will you control the different entrances? The primary agency for security of the games will be the New York State Police (NYSP), the official state police force of the U.S. State of New York, employing over 4,900 sworn state troopers. It is formally part of the New York State Executive Department. The NYSP divides New York state geographically into eleven “Troops,” each comprising a specific geographic area, usually several counties. Each is supervised by a “Troop Commander” usually of the rank of Major. Lake Placid and all venues for the Winter Universiade are located within Troop B which oversees Clinton County, Essex County, Franklin County, Hamilton County and St. Lawrence County. The New York State Police, in particular Troop B, will be involved in the security infrastructure working with the multitude of stakeholders, bringing their experience and partner agencies together. The security management of the Winter Universiade will include surveillance. monitoring, access control, detection of intrusion, information security and communications, command and control, and fire safety.

Can you guarantee that your active participation in the FISU transfer of knowledge program, from both participation and organiser roles? Please explain your understanding and your planning in the candidature files.

A consortium of Northern New York universities is planning to lead an academic conference in conjunction with FISU during the Winter Universiade in the greater Lake Placid region. Preliminary topics have been discussed and will be finalized with collaboration to engage, educate and inspire.

Yes, we can guarantee active participation in the FISU transfer of knowledge program from both participation and organiser roles.

ACADEMIC CONFERENCE

A conference topic under consideration is “Winter Sports and Climate Disruption” with multi-disciplinary tracks focused on climate science in the Adirondacks, global economic tourism and sport impacts of climate disruption, and winter sports engineering, technology and innovation to meet the changing environment and athlete/sport needs. The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, New York is an ideal location to host this proposed topic. This world-class museum is focused on the natural history of the Adirondacks and is deeply committed to building public understanding of the gravity of current changes in the Earth’s climate. Through a network of universities, research institutes and private foundations, The Wild Center has established itself as a destination for international youth climate initiatives and it partners with universities for research, demonstrations of sustainability innovation and educational outreach. Additionally, the bid committee has engaged the Nature Conservancy’s Adirondack Chapter staff to help implement sustainability initiatives throughout the venues and athlete/visitor experience. As part of the educational program proceedings, we have planned topics that will appeal to coaches and student athletes pursuing careers in health, innovation and science relating to sport. There are a number of additional venues in Lake Placid and the surrounding region that can facilitate and host components of the academic conference including the 355 seat theatre at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, Northwood on Main’s presentation theatre (under construction), the Paul Smith’s College VIC, and others. Private institutions such as Clarkson University and Paul Smith’s College and public institutions within the SUNY school system will take a lead role in organising the conference with FISU representatives and will ensure all sessions are peer reviewed with the expertise and engagement of international colleagues. Each participating academic institution is also planning to offer opportunities for athletes and visiting scholars to engage on their respective campus before, during and after the Universiade.

TRANSFER OF KNOWLEDGE GUARANTEE

A broad delegation from the greater Lake Placid region attended the Observer Program at the Winter Universiade in Almaty, Kazakhstan in February 2017 as well as the Summer Universiade in Taipei in August 2017 to study and understand the scope of engagement for the organising committee, venue staff and volunteers. We plan to send a delegation to Krasnoyarsk in 2019 and Lucerne in 2021 to gain further knowledge from these organisers. The Olympic Regional Development Authority represents an alliance of State and local officials operating a series of winter sport venues in addition to the Olympic sites, including the Olympic Center, the Olympic Jumping Complex and Olympic Sports Complex all located in Lake Placid. As host to numerous international and national championships, ORDA has brought thousands of athletes and spectators to the region and has a vast knowledge of international sport competition protocols and event venue practices. As part of debriefings and transfer of materials, we would welcome the opportunity to share our experiences across our vast array of events, including the 2023 Winter Universiade, with future Universiade organisers.

We propose to showcase cultural diversity, highlight winter sports and Lake Placid’s sports history, educate participants and spectators in a lively and entertaining manner, and, ultimately, unite the nations represented in a shared communal experience. The United States of America is a melting pot of cultures with residents from every background imaginable. We will partner with organisations to showcase and highlight the diversity of our nation and state while, at the same time, reflecting the cultural heritage of athlete delegations - providing a platform that embraces our commonality and celebrates our differences. Visiting artists and university students, working both during the pre-festival planning process and “on-the-ground” during the event, will work collectively to honor traditional cultural customs and, in some cases, modernize those traditions for a contemporary audience. We believe that our history and heritage have the ability to enrich and excite. By marrying new technology with historical venues, we have the opportunity to create stimulating experiences that honor and celebrate that history. The Universiade Park in Lake Placid center will serve as a hub of cultural exchange, enrichment and entertainment for the Games. Additionally, the Winter Universiade Exhibition will play a large role in the celebration of our history - connecting our past to our future and bringing a greater awareness to FISU and the Winter Universiade Games. CULTURAL EXCHANGE International enrichment between our community and the delegations is still vivid to volunteers and members of the community who experienced the Games in 1972. Our local youth are inspired by international athletes through supported partnerships bridging community and events. ADKNC Global Sports will work as international relations ambassadors to amplify existing cultural programs and develop the workforce and volunteers of the Universiade with ongoing cultural exchanges in mind. One example of an existing program is with ORDA’s Sports Development Department. This department promotes yearround education and participation in Winter Olympic Sports through unique interactive activities for everyone from youths to adults. Its staff may include members of national development and World Cup teams who are training in Lake Placid. They often provide quality instruction and safety at all times. The Sports Development staff work in partnership with area schools to help promote the various events, while educating students about winter sports, Olympic history and Lake Placid’s Olympic venues. These customized programs included group activities, interactive sports clinics and field trips.

DEVELOPMENT: VISION, LEGACY AND SUSTAINABILITY CONCEPT Please describe the concept and vision of your Winter Universiade? Detail the following aspects: • What are your benefits in bidding for the Winter Universiade? • What is your principal motivation for hosting the Winter Universiade? • How does your vision fit into the host city’s long-term planning strategy? What legacy do you intend to bring to the host city and to university sport in your country through the organisation of the Winter Universiade? Please detail the long-term impact on the host city in terms of economic, social and urban development. Describe the benefits for the students and the development of university sport. CONCEPT AND VISION FOR THE UNIVERSIADE AND LEGACY The Adirondack North Country region has a rich history in winter sports competition and active youth and collegiate teams. With this success comes a need to enhance the amenities of the region in order to achieve economically sustainable development to carry us forward. Hosting the Winter Universiade in 2023 is an opportunity to support and continue that legacy, and grow the Adirondack North Country’s economy and the international sports brand of New York State. The Lake Placid bid is part of a multi-year, multi-event timeline and is regional in nature, involving villages and towns surrounding Lake Placid. Securing an international multi-sport event like the Winter Universiade will provide the avenues to solve regional community issues, bring the 1980 Olympic venues to current competitive standards and amenities, provide the roadmap for sport venue economic sustainability and expand the international sports brand of New York State. SUSTAINABILITY Securing the Winter Universiade and the multi-sports event timeline will address ongoing community and regional quality of life issues with transportation, seasonality, and job growth. As part of the planning process we are working to integrate the needs of regional residents and business owners, and complement the goals of the State of New York in serving its residents. We will work with the towns and villages, school districts, and local and regional sports organisations in the very beginning phase from the ground level to assess their needs and determine how the Winter Universiade can help them build a legacy and increase participation in sports. The bid process has prompted an increased sense of urgency and commitment to infrastructure development projects, including an existing effort to increase broadband access to the communities in the region. Additionally, the Games will provide a timeline to address transportation circulation, pedestrian amenities, parking, and curb appeal in the greater Lake Placid area. The bid process is also evaluating the need to implement an inter-county transportation network for resident and event needs.

In order to host the University Games, the Adirondack North Country region will also seek to develop an international transportation network. Improvements to local airports, such as Plattsburgh International and Adirondack Regional will allow for greater long term connectivity between the region and the rest of the world. Athlete, official, and volunteer housing can be created with a goal of easing the long-term workforce and community housing shortage that currently exists in the Lake Placid / Adirondack region. The conversion or creation of an Athlete’s Village facility could be transitioned for mixed use as a hub for not-for-profits, community housing, and educational purposes, and is an important step toward providing a year-round non-tourism driver to the economy. The Winter Universiade will be a springboard for maintaining and refurbishing all of our sports venues, making them climateadaptive, visitor-adaptive and economically sustainable. This includes evolving the venues to international standards; timing, scoring, communications and technology improvements; decreasing their environmental impact; movement toward multiple season and multiple sport use; and, the development of anchor attractors. Existing local, regional, and statewide strategic plans include maintaining the region’s reputation as a leader in hosting international sporting events. In addition, hosting the University Games would spotlight the role of FISU in North America and strengthen its relationship with other collegiate sports associations, ensuring greater US participation in future games. COLLABORATION AND REGIONAL SUPPORT The regional nature of the University Games requires the cooperation of many different levels of government and agencies. This cooperative structure can be revisited to develop support for future events and regional initiatives. Collaborations among organisations such as museums, art centers, local educational institutions, and regional universities such as Paul Smith’s College, Clarkson University as well as the comprehensive State University of New York system will enrich the athlete experience and serve as the basis for future curriculums, studies, and regional marketing efforts. The local communities will be drawn together, energized, and engaged, ensuring the success of the University Games. The bid proposes the use of existing sports facilities in North Creek at Gore Mountain, and rinks in Potsdam and Plattsburgh. Additionally, the bid looks to support the growing hotel base in Saranac Lake with a curling facility and hotel lodging in Wilmington at Whiteface Mountain. These proposed efforts will provide direct impact to sustain and diversify the economy,create jobs, and encourage private investment ACADEMIC BENEFITS The design of the Athlete’s Village and Lake Placid center will include a component where social interaction is facilitated and opportunities for cultural exchanges are provided. Individuals who provide support (attaches, interpreters, volunteers, and others) will benefit through exposure to different cultures and peoples. LAKE PLACID // 2023

The Winter Universiade bid identifies an opportunity to engage SUNY broadcast and media majors to play a significant role in the international broadcast feed and media communications. In addition to sports and recreation, Clarkson, Cornell, St. Lawrence, SUNY Environmental Science and Forestry and other universities currently use the Lake Placid / Adirondack region as an area for long-term studies and research. This can be shared and expanded as part of the Academic Conference. The increased exposure provided by the University Games also presents an opportunity to connect local secondary students with university efforts. ENVIRONMENT

18.4

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME Please describe the sustainable development programme that you intend to implement in order to initiate at least five sustainability concepts with the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s universities (Master or PhD level) in the areas of resource management (water, waste, air, food, soil, energy), infrastructure (transportation, buildings) and public impact (sport, health, society, gender equalities, security) in the context of university sports. The programme should comprise the following elements: scope, expected impact, partners, timeline of realisation, budget. This programme needs to be applied as described and will become an integral part of the attribution contract.

Alongside efficiencies and sustainability concepts proposed for venues as referenced in Section 7.4, we envision other environmental contributions from the Winter Universiade. We will work to bring concepts forward that will positively contribute to the community and our human ecosystem. These include a proposed carbon-neutral Games, stewardship programs that acknowledge our landscape, efforts to help our venues and community become greener and more climate resilient, transportation and infrastructure upgrades to support hybrid and electric vehicles, partnerships with communities to identify needs and land use, as well as more green space as part of a town center concept for Lake Placid. We foresee a number of opportunities with colleges and universities that will ultimately support our local communities and provide a lasting impact.

The Organising Committee will continue to evaluate and work with the colleges and universities, and their public and private partners, to finalize a regional program. For example, Clarkson University is working with the regional municipalities and ORDA for the Lake Placid-Adirondack region to be among the first US Green Building Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Leadership Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Communities. Through the LEED Communities process and collaboration with other regional partners, faculty and students have begun the process of establishing strong sustainability goals and carefully tracking impacts on the region related to energy efficiency, waste, renewable energy, water quality and green sustainability. Through this program we will have access to professionals from engineering to airport assistance, and general assistance where we need it including education of visitors who may want to replicate these efforts.

18.3

A broadcast / media curriculum program with a broadcast laboratory supporting the Winter Universiade as well as future events and competitions will be evaluated. This program would be alongside a legacy media center for events, use for related conferences and seminars, and an ongoing broadcast laboratory for colleges and universities.

COLLABORATION INTENTIONS How do you intend to collaborate with your National University Sports Federation, universities, the government, international organisations and FISU in order to create, thanks to the Winter Universiade, a lasting legacy to the benefit of citizens, the host city, the academic community, etc.? Part of the ADKNC Global Sports initiative was to identify representatives who bring these elements to the table. Initial engagement and support has been identified as seen in Section E and will continue as a host city with our Organising Committee. Delise Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Meally, Secretary-General, US-IUSF, has been involved since the bid process was initiated. On a national level with US-IUSF and regionally we look to continue to collaborate. At the ground level, regionally we look to assess the needs of our community and determine benefits to our residents that will provide a true and lasting impact. Together with FISU, we will work to raise the worldwide awareness and importance of sustainable development. We will appoint a Legacy Manager to focus on this area specifically.

An additional program under evalutaion is a sustainable housing study for our resort location with Cornell University, in coordination with the Community Development Commission. Other programs under evaluation involving colleges and universities include a student sport commitments and scheduling program, sustainable forest management program, culinary and hospitality curriculum tied to sport program, sustainable farming program, as well as an extended and expanded sport development program that exists within the ORDA structure.
