The memories of the Olympics is everywhere. The jump complex is a great part of it. Until you see it you can't appreciate the courage of the athletes that compete. Along with the ice arena this was my favorite experience in Lake Placid.

HI AGAIN---IT'S THE TRAVELIN' TRAVEL AGENTS FROM CONSUMERS TRAVEL WORLD! This was certainly a unique opportunity to experience ski jumping without injury! You are taken to the top of the Olympic Ski Jump and can look down to your heart's content. Next to the ski jump was a slide down wet turf (it was summertime)--way too intrepid for this old codger,... More

The day we went (summertime) there was a daily show around 1 pm, where jumpers go through the ski jumps and land in water, doing tricks. The kids enjoyed the 45 minute show, and then afterwards there were jumpers on the bigger hills, again interesting to watch. Prior to the show we went on the ski hill to see the... More

Riding the chair lift and then taking the elevator to the top of the 120M Ski jump provides one of the great views in the Lake Placid area. You can see most of the high peaks from the observation deck. Looking down the jump gives you a whole new appreciation for what they are doing. If you are lucky, someone... More

The view was absolutely beautiful and it was so amazing to look at it from a skier's view as opposed to on TV

Such a site from high up if you take the elevator up to the very top. The ski jumps, in the summer, offer competitions where the athletes jump into a pool of water right in front of the actual jumps. A spectacular site indeed!

A must visit if in Lake Placid! It's great in the summer (check the web or their schedule to see when jumping is). We saw future young Olympians in training. Go team!!

We visited the complex on a summer Saturday. This meant we would not only be able to travel to the top of the ski jump for a bird's eye view but also would have the chance to watch live ski jumping as part of their summer jumping series. We first were treated to a show by the young aerialists who... More

there are select days of the week when athletes use the jump and land in a pool. call ahead. The elevator ride to the top charges $9 per person and you need to get to the bottom of the jump first to buy these tickets. Why not take the money where people inquire? This venue should be either free or... More

Thank you for visiting the Olympic Jumping complex. I’m sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Many people enjoy taking the glass elevator up to the top of the 120 meter ski jump to the sky deck. For future reference our summer jumping series takes place on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 1pm.

The Trolley will take you to the base and then a ski lift takes you up to see both the low and high jump. When you stand there it is hard to imagine the courage it takes to make the jump. Daunting. Total admiration for these athletes.
