A Community Leader

Wini and Peter at Oktoberfest

While Wini literally built the physical business, Stefanie worked on growing occupancy, not only for The Golden Arrow, but Lake Placid in general. Immediately after The Olympics, she was named a chairperson of the chamber of commerce. Her main focus was keeping The Olympic venues relevant and useful after the games. She was also a leader in bringing tour groups to the area and helped create events such as the Lake Placid Oktoberfest.
