Spectacular scenery from the top of the 120M jump. Be sure to walk outside to the platform used by the jumpers and see the lakes and surrounding mountainside. You can also see the freestyle training facility and pool.

We got to watch the Olympians practicing on the aerial jumps. They actually land in a huge pool of water. You can also walk up or take an elevator to the top of the long ski jump track. They will be practicing all summer.

The view from the top is incredible. Personally, I don't know how jumpers have the nerve to ski down that thing. There's interesting sports history here but, if you're afraid of heights, stay on the ground. It's still worth a visit if you don't take the elevator to the top.

Beautiful views, quick trip from town. Free Parking, quick elevator trip, 360 degree view from inside. Can walk to top of jump, partially outside. We got beautiful pics of jumps and landscape. So high up, unbelievable view. Can't believe they ski from there.

There was absolutely nothing going on here. Only one car in the massive parking lot and I am pretty sure that was the ticket sales employee. While I'm sure that it would be something to see the actual ski jumpers, invest a few extra bucks and book a scenic flight if you want the views.

Had a great time going up to the top of the jump. You get a great view of the area and get a real feel for what it must be like to stand up there on skis! Was free with the CAN/AM hockey tournament pass.

I'd been here before when there were jumpers training on the turf hill and it was AMAZING. But when I visited here with my buddies in March, there was nothing going on here--and the attraction's website is virtually inscrutable if you want to plan your visit to coincide with ski jumping, anyway. My friends and I still completely enjoyed the... More

Well worth the visit and $8.00 to tour the Olympic Ski Jump Complex. Ticket includes elevator ride to top of ski jump, where there is an indoor observation deck. You can go outside and walk toward the jump, and go up several steps right next to the jump, to get the feel of what these tremendous athletes experience, so high... More

Take an elevator ride to the top and get a feel for what it feels like as a competitor. Be sure to take a picture on the medal stand with the mountains in the background

It was something to go up in the elevator to see a pretty spectacular almost 360 degree view but there wasn't a lot of info once you were up there. It seems like they want to keep things uncluttered but maybe a recording of facts/figures/information that would play all day would be more interesting.
