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.

  • We visited the complex in March 2019. The facilities are impressive. In fact, you can see them from afar on the road. We have to get a ticket at the shop. A terrace allows us to see the towers and witness the jumps. During our visit, there was no jump but the look is worth it. Then we head to the 120m jump tower, the highest, and an elevator takes us to the top of the tower. You can go out and see the launch pads and have the perspective that the jumpers have during their jumps. Very interesting!!! An Olympic podium is within our reach and it's fun to catch on. Short visit but see if you are around.
