The ski jumps loom above everything else. Drive in and take the chair lift to the top and experience what the jumpers saw before they went down the hill. Watch young hopefuls practice jumps on the trampoline or down the practice jumps into the pool....More

I'd assume so, just might not be doing anything. I'd still go for the views, they're stunning!

You can drive up the hill as well. There's a nice parking lot right there. Super easy.
