My wife wanted me to see where she came while her daughter was there at a hockey-camp that had college scouts as her daughter went on to college on a hockey scholarship . This trip was back in the year 2000 & she wanted to show me all the different things here where the 1980 winter Olympics were held.

Loved seeing the jumps up close, the views from the top of the big jump and being able to watch kids training. We saw both aerial and ski jumpers. Because of an impending thunderstorm that literally started as we got up to the top of the jump, we were not allowed to stay and the chairlift was shut down. They... More

If you plan on staying the the Lake Placid area and visiting many facilities purchase an Olympic pass and save $$$$. The ski jump is awesome whether you're into athletics or not. Make sure you go on a day when there is activity. For us this was Wednesday. Athletes put on a freestyle skiing exhibition where they perform and drop... More

My family and I were in lake placid for a few days. We stopped here to see the Olympic ski jump. The view from the top is great. We got to see a summer skier jump twice. That was very cool to see. The place is pretty aged considering there are still events that take place there. It's history and... More

The Ski Jump Complex was the highlight of our trip to Lake Placid. It was impressive seeing the ski jumpers performing in summer. After seeing ski jumping on television for years, it was neat to actually see ski jumpers in person. The shows are only on Wednesdays and Saturdays so you must plan your trip accordingly if you want to... More

We visited the Olympic Ski Jump Complex after having driven by it several times over the years. It was slow getting in as the driver of the car in front of us was asking numerous questions and there is only one lane to get in. Once in, there was plenty of free parking. We took the chairlift to the top... More

To go up on a chairlift and then an elevator to the top of the ski jump was awesome. No better views and to see what it's like for athletes is amazing. I appreciate their sport more now than ever! The views from the top are the best! A must do and only $11 for seniors. Doesn't take a lot... More

For $16 pp- this was one of the coolest things we've seen in a long time. There is a "show" with jumpers going into the pool, then jumpers going off the alpine jump, and you can also take a chair lift and elevator to the top of the highest jump. Incredibly neat.
