My husband and I spent the day in Lake Placid. We spent about 2 hours at the ski jump complex. We bought the Olympic passport, which is worth it if you plan to visit 2-3 Olympic sites. You should try to visit the ski complex on a summer aerial demonstration day (Wednesday's and Saturday's, but check their website). The show... More

This was such a great place. We got extra lucky since we got a tour from one of the local skiers. We were able to check out the locker room and then go up in the tower. It was just so neat to learn all about the slopes and how they were made and used for the Olympics and still... More

Fun visit. I was even able to drive up to where you could take the elevator since I am not able to ride a cable car. So I was able to get the whole experience. Also we were able to see kids practicing jumps on a dry ski ramp jumping into a pool.

We went on the day that they have actual demonstrations of kids doing high jumps wearing skis in 90 degree weather and then landing in a pool rather than on a mound of snow. It was definitely something different. The second part of the show, where kids land on a bed of fake grass was off to a slow start... More

Riding the elevator to the top of the ski jump gives you a thrilling perspective of what challenges those athletes as they compete. No way!! But fun to see within the safety of the lift. And the views from the top are a good hike substitute. Beautiful!

You don't have to interested in sports or the Olympics to enjoy this attraction. First, definitely buy the Olympic passport to see all the venues for much cheaper than buying them separately! The view was beautiful in all directions!

When you get to the base (after riding up sky lift) you will be amazed how tall these jumps are. It's very fun to watch the summer practice runs and we loved riding up the elevator to the top. Amazing views.

Watching Ski Jumping on TV does not give it justice. When we looked up at the size of both the 60 and 90 meter jumps, we could not believe that people did this. Climbing up and looking down from the jumps did not make it any better. It is plain scary. We were told a trick that they do so... More

We saw this on the way into Lake Placid, cost $30 for 2 adults and a child, there is a chairlift you can ride up to the jump tower or take a 2 min car ride to the towers, there is an elevator that goes up in one of the towers with an observation deck and a video with the... More
