This place wasn’t too far from where we were staying and my husband and friends really wanted to try the alpine slide. They loved it! This place was clean and had lots of neat things to do!

Traveled through here for years without knowing this is an Alpine Combined Training Center year round. Tuesday tours at 0900 with Marianne will reward you with a depth of history regarding this site.

This is a great historic spot in SS! We watched summer ski jumping and saw the 4th of July laser show which was totally awesome. This is also the venue for the free summer concert series.

This apparently was the only Olympic jumping site for a very long time....it’s absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed it being green and just reading about the history.
