Looking Down the Ski JumpThe Olympic Jumping Complex located in Lake Placid New York is the only operating Ski Jump on the east coast of the U.S.
You can take an elevator up to the top of the 120 meter jump for just eleven dollars. At the top, there's 360 degree views of the village and surrounding Adirondack high peaks.
The jump looks much higher and steeper from the top, and if you're daring you could walk up the stairs and stand where the skiers stand before taking off.
It made me come to the conclusion that all ski jumpers might be crazy.
