The ski jumps were a great place to visit. Well maintained and stroller accessible. There were lots of things to check out and staff was friendly. Even watched skiers train in the training area. Would return again.

Now I have so much more respect for skiers! We visited in the summer of 2015 (June). We rode the elevator to the top of the ski jump which is not for the faint of heart. It is a beautiful view! And looking down the ski jump is amazing!

We loved taking the chairs up and checking out the ski jumps.From here you take an elevator up to the top of the jump. It is amazing how much of a slope there is. We learned about how the jumps could be adjusted also. There are stairs to climb to go up even higher, but it was well worth it.... More

While the $11 adult admission seemed a bit steep at first, we really enjoyed our visit to the Olympic ski jump complex and decided it was well worth the fee, even my wife who has a bit of acrophobia, and gave us a new appreciation for the sport. After paying at the gate, one drives to the base of the... More

Enjoyed our visit, closest I'll ever get to that experience! Also watched a group of young skiers practice jumping into the pool while we were there.

This venue needs little more upkeep and maintenance. The season was a bit early when we visited. We paid $5.00 each (senior rate) and went up on chair lift. Nice view. Saw ski jump runs up close. Summer season, so no snow. Went to aerial area. Young folks were practicing in a swimming pool doing very basic flips. I did... More

You do not realize just how tall these jumps are watching on television. I don't think it was as tall as those in Austria ad Sweden but they are way up there.

We were lucky enough to be there when there were 5-7 jumpers practicing. What a view and what a great experience. You really get a sense of how high you have to get .

I had the idea that this would be a boring visit but I was wrong. This self guided tour is worth it, don't miss it if you are visiting Lake Placid. The area where you buy your ticket gives you access to the bottom of the ski jump but then you have to drive away to reach the top of... More

We weren't really sure what to expect when we showed up at the ski jump. It was pretty interesting! It was neat to look up at the jump from the bottom and then down from the top of the jump. The view at the top was incredible. It was neat to be up there and imagine all the Olympians getting... More
