Stopped by on a Wednesday - off season for sure. Cool to see and worth the very short drive. Very cool to see, no snow as very warm week this week.

Wow people actually jump from this height!!! It's hellll scary, but awesome view. Hubby and I took the elevator ride to the top and it was worth it! The chairlift was closed when we were there, next time we hope to see skiers practise their jumps... It was still worth it...

Very unhelpful staff, don't explain the ticketing system. Paid a fee to cross a stop sign and park the car. costs more to use the chairlift but you can't for it there you have to go back to the front ticket counter, then they tried to charge me again to cross the stop sign. not worth the hassle

We just happened upon this festival because we wanted to look around the ski jump complex. We were able to see Olympic athletes compete off the 90M jump as well as younger kids off the 20M hill. The price of admission was more than worth it! There were bands, food vendors and art/craft vendors. We rode the chair lift up to watch the competition on the 90M hill close up and then took the elevator up to the top of the 120M jump to look around, inside and out! Amazing views of the fall colors! And it makes you realize how crazy/brave/nuts these athletes must be to jump off this thing!!!!!
