Decided to check out these daredevil ski jumpers and boy was it worth the trip. These athletes were practicing on a 90 m jump. We also saw some free style jumping too b

We drove by the Ski Jump Complex on our way to the Bobsled run. We were amazed and shocked at how high, steep, and, narrow the ski jumps are! We returned and went into the complex. We were extremely happy we did! While the weather was not great (drizzling) and nobody was ski-jumping, we did get to watch someone practice... More

Watched jumpers... some daring people out there! Makes you think about your own life & what daring stuff you would want to do. After the show, they let people slide down with tubes, lol. Lots of fun!

We did this as event at a conference and I would definately go back with my family. We saw the freestylers jump into the pool and got to take the chair lift up to the big jumps. Totally unique experience

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
