Exciting experience. I've never. Even on a lift before but it was an amazing experience. Was able to witness a ski jump. Super humans those skiers are! :) great views. Wish the windows could be cleaner for picture taking.

We enjoyed the opportunity to tour this facility. It's self guided and the staff were pleasant. You pay as you enter the lot, park, then take the chair lift up the mountain. The lift operators were very friendly. We enjoyed the views on the ride up/down the mountain. Once you arrive at the top of the mountain, you walk over... More

The ski jump complex is a cool thing to see but is over priced. The only thing that made it worthwhile to see was the fact some jumpers were practicing hoping to make the squad one day. The jumpers only being only 17 years old to us was quite impressive. Some of the staff were not happy at their job... More

It's an interesting viewpoint...and that's about it. Makes me think that ski jumpers are a little crazy.

This place was so cool! Couldn't believe how high the jumping tower was. Couldn't even get to the edge of the jumping platform it was so scary! View from the top was impressive.

We went on a 6 degree afternoon with -20 wind chill factor, and it was worth it! It gives us an idea of how daring the ski jumpers must be to go down that steep huge slide and fly into the air. Also a great view. The staff were very friendly.

We happen to go on a beautiful clear day so the views were fantastic. A cloudy day, like many here in Lake Placid, would greatly change my opinion. The history is cool. I wish they had more pictures to see of the Olympic jumpers to keep it more interesting. I really liked being able to see the vantage point from... More

We visited several times during our trip and thoroughly enjoyed this site. Our first night in town, there was a ski jumping competition. This was really great. Fun to watch . Very crowded. We returned several days later and toured the ski jump tower. This is free with your Olympic passport. We took a ski lift to the tower. While... More

This is a must see and do while in Lake Placid. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire complex, but it is sad to see the facility wasting away. We were fortunate that their were ski jumpers practicing while we were there. Also, enjoyed the 1980 Ski Jumps, but unfortunately the elevators were broken so we didn't get to go to the... More

There isn't much more exciting than taking the glass elevator to visit the top of the ski jumps in Lake Placid. The views are breathtaking on a bad day but our sunny warm winter day was extraordinary. The building itself is in serious need of updating and repair. Doorknobs missing, windows opaque, rusty railings and faded wallpaper. Didn't go up... More
