not available from april - november 2019 — CONTINUING THE OLYMPIC LEGACY

As you visit the Olympic Sites this summer you may notice a lot of busy workers and areas closed off to our guests, but rest assured, these inconveniences will be worth it. We are modernizing facilities and adding new activities that will rival our winter bounty of thrills and excitement.

REMODELED SCENIC ELEVATOR TO THE TOP OF THE 120M SKI JUMP TOWER

Opening Fall 2019

The newly renovated glass-enclosed elevator will offer breathtaking panoramic views of the Adirondack High Peaks and will also deliver guests to the new zipline launch deck.

FROST RAILS

New frost rail system for both the 90M and 120M ski jumps. Frost rails are designed to maintain a consistent and reliable jumping surface no matter the weather.

outRUN GRADING

Underground infrastructure is being installed and a new design for the landing hills. By regrading the landing hills, the venue will not require as much costly "snow work" as less snow will be required for the desired profile.

ZIPLINE

Alongside the 90M Ski Jump Tower & Landing Hill The zipline park is designed for all levels of adventurers with the thrill similar to what an Olympic Ski Jumper experiences. The most extreme of the 4 courses is expected to reach speeds of 60mph, with a 30-degree decline.

State of the Art GONDOLA

The current chairlift system is being removed, making way for a new state-of-the-art gondola. Once completed, the ADA compliant gondola will carry athletes, coaches, officials, equipment and visitors from the base lodge to the 90M and 120M ski jump towers.

WINTER COMPETITION SITE

Freestyle athletes launch themselves up to 40 ft in the air off "kickers" (jumps made from snow) before landing on the steep hill in front of you. Check out the summer training pool for a sense of the high flying acrobatics and visit in the winter to see athletes train and compete.

SUMMER TRAINING POOL

Like many winter sports, the bulk of a freestyle athletes training happens in the summer. Athletes use the pool to perfect their tricks before transferring them to snow in the winter. An athlete may perform 20 repetitions or more in the pool allowing them to practice difficult skills in a more forgiving environment than the winter site. Lake Placid built the first freestyle training pool in the world in the late 1980's. As the sport has evolved, so has the training site. The next iteration of the pool will including kickers or jumps with hydraulic tops so athletes can adjust the size, and a new cushioning system to make the landing softer for the athletes.

Visitors may view the ski jumps from the Intervales Lodge at no charge. This activity and many others are FREE with your Olympic Sites Passport!
