WILMINGTON, N.Y. – Adirondack Mac, the official Mascot for the Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games, visited Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington, N.Y. today, Thursday, Dec. 30. Mac skied on some of the same trails that will be used for the January 12-22, 2023 FISU World University Games’ men’s and women’s Alpine ski events.
