Olympic Jumping Complex

Olympic Byway, State Rt. 73, near Lake Placid in Essex County

The Olympic Ski-Jumping Complex features two ski jumps towering over the village of Lake Placid as well as free style ski jumps and pool.

Between Albany and Montreal, there's nothing taller. These friendly giants greet Adirondack visitors as they kiss the eastern sky. Known as the Olympic Ski Jumps, the 90 and 120 meter jumps have been the proving grounds for many World Champions and Olympians alike.The 120m jump tower features a skydeck - accessible by chairlift and elevator - that'll give you a sky-high perspective on the art of the Ski Jump. There are nordic jumping competitions throughout the summer and winter, where you'll see the nation's finest take to the air. A watered synthetic surface allows the year-round use. A set of free style jumps are adjacent, with events in the winter and training jumps into a pool during the summer. Ski lift rides to the base of the towers, with elevators to the top. Tours available.
