WILMINGTON, N.Y. -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state will spend $14 million to rebuild a popular Adirondack ski center lodge that was destroyed by fire.

The Mid-Station Lodge at the state-run Whiteface Mountain resort in Wilmington, burned to the ground on Nov. 30, 2019.

The fire broke out after skiers had left the slopes. No one was hurt, yet the cause remains to be determined.

Whiteface is run by the state's Olympic Regional Development Authority. It hosts major alpine ski events and serves as a U.S. Olympic training site. 

The new 10,000-square-foot lodge, will look like a classic Adirondack camp. It will have dining facilities, a vaulted ceiling and a wrap-around viewing deck. 

The first phase of the two-part project is set to be completed by Nov. 2020, with the second phase expected to be finished in Oct. 2021.

This project is part of the Governor's 2020 State of the State Address on Wednesday, Jan. 8.
