We went out of season, so we were the only visitors at the time, so it was a quick visit to the top and taking photos. The view from the top is awesome. Looking down from where the ski jump take off, wow!!

We snowshoed here from John Brown's Farm. We took the elevator up to the top of the Ski Jump. The views from inside, and out on the Observation Area, were fantastic! We saw the High Peaks and were able to identify them because of informative displays. This is a "must visit" to really appreciate the beauty of the area, AND... More

The area is getting a little rundown, but still a nice place to visit and great place to view the entire Adirondack area. The day we went, there was a kids ski jump competition which was nice to see.

The chair lift ride and view from the jump tower is well worth a visit to the Jump Complex. The views on a clear day are incredible! If you are a skier, don't miss trying the ski jump! For $10 the skiers in the family (no boards) each tried a coached ski jump. The kids were great at it right... More

I'm glad we did this because the views up there are amazing. But I doubt I'd do it again. It's a bit of a walk from the parking lot to the chair lift, downhill there and uphill back to the car. The chair lift was neat, it was freezing when we went but not much they can do about that.... More

The jumps were crazy in size. I was dizzy just taking the elevator up to the observation deck. This is worth the trip.

We went snow tubing here and had a BALL! $9 per hour, they provide the tubes, you go down a long wonderfully groomed slope, then they drive the tubes up for you. You walk to the top and do it all again and again. $9 extremely well-spent! Loved it!

Good views and good Olympic history if nearby. Boy are they high up. It was very cold the day we went, so we drove up to the elevator area and didn't ride the chair lift.

While the facility is a bit dated and sparse, (it was built in the late 70's to be fair) it is worth the time to check it out. The views are spectacular from the top of the 120M tower, and the chair ride to the complex is fun. The history of the ski jump complex is amazing. Dating back well... More

We got the Olympic passport. For $32, it gave us discounts on the gondola, bobsled ride and the Elevator ride to the top of the 120 m ski jump. We did not go tubing - who would want to pay and then WALK BACK UP THE HILL!?? That was not a selling point. The elevator for the ski jump, you... More
