Watching the mogul skiers in the morning and then coming back in the afternoon to watch them practice on the 120 meter hill were great experiences. Lots of fun to have been able to go to the top of the shorter hill and get the view that the skiers get

Take the lift to the top of the highest ski jump and be prepared to be awestruck by the view. I did it and I am scared of heights but it was worth the terror . You will wonder why anyone would hurl themselves off it but it will fill you with admiration for those that do.

Had a great time going there after we realized it was too cold and rainy to do any good hiking in the area. We had a chance to watch the Russian team practicing ski jumps in the special pool they have there

A chair lift and then an ordinary lift to the top of the ski jump tower, this should be done in good weather when you can really appreciate the view from the top. You can also marvel at the courage it must take to launch yourself down the run. If you're lucky you might see ski jumpers practising on the... More

The view was Awesome. The tower has a 2nd level with an even better view. There is a bathroom in the tower just in case you need it.

If you haven't experienced the size and height of a ski jump, you must see this. The experience was well worth the visit.

Great experience travelling on a ski lift and travelling to the top of the ski jump. I have a new respect for jumpers. Fantastic views from the top and it was good to be able to watch some practicing on the other slopes

If you are in Lake Placid you have to take the chairlift up to the top of the Ski Jumps. Very impressive. They practice year round so you actually get to see them jump off these things. Amazing.

They were practicing jumping and acrobatics which was fun to watch. We had the run of the facilities and it was great. You really get a perspective when you see it in person. The jumps are much larger in person than on TV.
