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.

  • Excellent family-friendly stop! The staff were fantastic! It gets busy quickly, so be sure to get your tickets before 3:30 pm.

  • 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.
  • This was so cool. We took skyride to top. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Once you get off you walk to the 120 Meter jump. There's an elevator to take you to the top. Once up in jump you walk out onto a catwalk and you see where Olympians would go down the jump. You have to be crazy to do this I have so much more respect for these skiers. It is amazing the height there actually going down. Def visit here if your in area.
