The Olympic Jumping Complex in Lake Placid is a must-visit attraction for anyone looking for excitement during their vacation. This complex is not only the site of ski jumping showcases, competitions, and athlete training, but it also offers a range of thrilling activities for visitors.
The Jumping Complex hosts a variety of jumping events throughout the year. From World Cup jumping to Aerial competitions. If you're lucky you can even catch teams training! Check the Legacy Sites venue schedule for upcoming events.
Skyflyer Zip Line
One of the main attractions of the complex is the Skyflyer Zip Line. Located next to the 100-meter ski jump, the zip line allows you to emulate the rush of ski jumping at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. As you soar through the air with the greatest of ease, you’ll experience the exhilaration of an Olympian.
In addition to the zip line, the Olympic Jumping Complex also features the brand new Skyride. This eight-passenger pulse gondola takes you up to the base of the ski jumping towers, where you’ll find the newly-remodeled scenic elevator. The glass exterior of the elevator provides a stunning bird’s-eye view of the Adirondack High Peaks as you ascend to the sky deck of the 128-meter ski jump. Once you reach the top, you can enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of Lake Placid that are usually only accessible after an hour-long hike up a mountain.
Whether you’re a thrill-seeker or simply looking to take in the beautiful views, the Olympic Jumping Complex has something for everyone. So, don’t miss out on this incredible experience during your vacation in Lake Placid.
