See how Olympians soar to new heights at Olympic Ski Jump Complex, a year-round training and competition site for many of the country's top athletes. Originally built in 1917, this complex contains the state-of-the-art 90 m (295 ft) and 120 m (393 ft) ski jump towers erected for the 1980 Winter Olympics. Just a short drive from Lake Placid, the complex also features a popular sky deck, offering unobstructed views of the surrounding Adirondack High Peaks. You can watch ski jumpers train and get a bird's-eye view of what they see as they speed down the ramp. Stop by the athletes' preparation room to see how participants warm up before each jump.

  • Take a goldola to the base of the ski jump and then an elevator up. Beautiful views, great details on the way the track works. I wouldnt miss it.

  • This was an ok experience. There honestly wasn't much to it. We bought tickets to the gondola and were taken on a 5-minute ride up the ski jump. The view was pretty good. there wasn't much to see or do once we got up there. there was the option to go up higher in the second tower via an elevator. only half our group actually wanted to go and they said the view was pretty much the same.
  • Great to see in person, but I can't understand how a human person would want to do that for a sport and like it. Correction love it.
