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.

if you do not enjoy heights, standing at the top of the big jump may send your stomach for a ride... Stunning views - can see all of the 1980 facilities from the top!

This was my first visit to Lake Placid since the 1960's. I have always wanted to visit an Olympic Ski Jump so this was the first place I visited upon arriving. It was amazing. You take a chair lift up to the ski jump towers where you take an elevator up to the top of the larger ski jump. From... More

We recently visited the complex with our two year old and had a great time. The price was reasonable and the little one was free. There were no events taking place but we did enjoy our chairlift ride. One negative was that only two people could sit on the chairlift so one person in our group was alone... not a... More

The chairlift ride up is nice. The view from the sky jump is not for the faint of heart. I definitely don't have the guts to contemplate actually jumping.
