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.

The staff was very friendly. The safety measures taken are perfect enough to make you feel safe but not take away from the experience and views. Priced fairly for the experience.

Although there is never a bad time to visit Lake Placid Olympic locations, Winter is best. After all, it was the sight of the Winter Olympics. A competition day at the Jumping Complex is incredible! Avid fans, loyal family members and visitors alike, all join the cheering and angst of a very long jump. Arrive early enough to see the... More

We happened upon the Jumping Complex after a competition weekend and we were SO lucky. They were actually practicing aerials and it brought a whole new level of appreciation to the sport. My family and I just oooh and ahhed and it was a highlight of our week in LP. We never went up the lift because my kids were... More

For $11 a ticket, it's an excellent choice. You take the chair lift to the bottom of the ski jump towers. Then the elevator up the 120 meter jump. You can climb a bit higher. The wind is crazy at the top. You can watch jumpers in training. There also is aerial ski jumpers. It was fun until one crashed... More

Take the elevator up, up, up to the 120 meter tower. Enjoy the indoor observation area and the screened in exterior observation area. It looks impressive on television--wait until you see it in person. Before you pay, ask what time jumpers will be there for an added treat. If you're scared of heights--you can still enjoy this.

we've been here twice; it is 100% better when skiers are practicing their jumps, but for about $10 you can ride a ski lift and take the elevators to the top of the jumps where you can see for miles and miles.
