Lake Placid Jumping
At the Olympic Jumping Complex, you'll see up close the ramp that ski jumpers launch from before flying over the length of a football field. Take the Lake Placid Olympic Jumping Complex elevator to the observation deck of the K-120 meter jump. At the top you will find a panoramic view of the Adirondack High Peaks as you stroll through the ski jumpers preparation room. Then get a bird's eye view of what the jumpers see as they start to accelerate towards the end of the ramp. Nearby, aerialists will spring off steep kickers on the Lake Placid Freestyle hill in a flurry of twists, turns and tumbles.
We are all taught that you need wings to fly. Not in the case of Nordic Combined Olympian Bill Demong, who made history at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Bill, a local Olympian, was the first American to win Nordic Combined gold. The Olympic Jumping Complex in Lake Placid was Bill's training ground for many years and is currently the training site for many aspiring young athletes who hope one day to earn a spot on the U.S. Winter Olympic Team.
