This is a must see and do while in Lake Placid. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire complex, but it is sad to see the facility wasting away. We were fortunate that their were ski jumpers practicing while we were there. Also, enjoyed the 1980 Ski Jumps, but unfortunately the elevators were broken so we didn't get to go to the... More

There isn't much more exciting than taking the glass elevator to visit the top of the ski jumps in Lake Placid. The views are breathtaking on a bad day but our sunny warm winter day was extraordinary. The building itself is in serious need of updating and repair. Doorknobs missing, windows opaque, rusty railings and faded wallpaper. Didn't go up... More

The elevator was broken but still had to pay 17$ per adult and 5$ per child to see the slides which could be seen from the parking lot. Not recommended

I think the time you see it, be sure the elevator is operational. It's $7 to visit, but only seeing the ground level is good, but be sure the top view is open. Great pics are probably best with snow!

was there during the 76? Olympics great at the top but scary, was there on business and had the opportunity to visit this site. it really gave you an understanding how frightening it must be to jump off it after you ski down the 60 degree lift.

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!
