Wow what a place this is, absolutely amazed at the height of these ski jumps. Great attraction & well worth it for the $$$ it cost to go to the top of the jumps.

there was a training camp on and we got to see ski jumpers go down the ramp and into the water - ski boots, helmet and skis! that was awesome! Then taking the elevator ride up to close to the top of the tallest jump was also impressive. Picturing the athletes from the 1932 Olympics going down the slope -... More

We just looked at these amazing structures standing tall above the trees. They are something to see.

The gondola ride is worth it, but you could walk or drive up. On the right days you can watch olympic hopefuls practising! The view from the top is breathtaking. The actual area to walk around in at the top is nice, and you realize that's where history was being made. The elevator ride was very nice as you could... More

The shows on a Wednesday are well worth a watch. The view from the top of the ski tower is amazing. I will be visiting again to try extreme tubing down the ski slope. Awesome attraction and loved it

Neat place to take the kids to show them first hand Olympic events. We watched 7 athletes jump from the 90 meter platform that was simply amazing. The elevator ride to the top of the 120 meter platform was well worth the trip. Hard to believe the courage of these athletes to jump from these heights. The day we were... More

worth seeing just to appreciate the sheer height of the Olympic ski jump. Not if you fear heights though! We went out of season so it was very quiet. You only require 30 minutes or so to see the complex. The complex itself looks a little worn and might have been more relevant during the winter season, however we got... More

We had to stop by the ski jump when we were driving out of Lake Placid. It is a really cool stop. You can go all the way up onto the taller jump and see what the skiers do as they rush down the slope. It was an amazing view of the surrounding area, and just an overall neat place... More

I love to watch the Winter Olympics including the ski jumpers...had no idea just how high up the jumps were! It actually took my breath away to see it from the bottom of the hill - you can't appreciate it on TV. Couldn't talk my husband into taking the chairlift to the top of the ski jump but it was...
