Just looking at the jumps is amazing. We were not able to go to the top as the elevator was broken but if we ever get back, we will take the ride. It is an awesome sight!

Unbelievable! How in the world do the Olympians do this? After taking the ski lift to the tower, we rode the elevator 26 stories to the top of the jump. I have no fear of heights, however, the adrenaline of just standing there, imagining what it must be like to take off from there must be quite a rush. A... More

Great experience at the Olympic Ski Jump Complex, took the chair lift up to the top of the mountain, took in the great views and saw first hand where the Olympians took their jumps. We just missed some of the folks practicing but talked with some of the other tourists and they all agreed it was awesome to watch. A... More

We have visited this site before but it never fails to take my breath away. How brave our ski jumpers are to hurl themselves down those jumps. On our October visit we were treated to a jump that was amazing to watch up close!

We were there on Columbus weekend and there was a Blues Festival going on as well as a ski jumping competition. It was awesome to be riding the ski lift up to the top while the ski jumpers were taking off below us. We went to the top of the 90 ft ski jump and the views were amazing. I... More

I'll never watch ski jumping on TV again without thinking of being at the top of the tower and looking down! It was fun to take the chairlift up the hill and then the elevator to the top. Great views all around, but hard to get good photos through the tall chain link fences on the viewing platform. On the... More

Was really cool to go up the ski jump and see how crazy these ski jumpers really are! lol! Too bad that once you get all the way up there is really nothing to look at inside the building structure. Would have been cool if they did something will the empty space in the structure like turning it into a... More
