Lookout Sports Complex
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.
