The Adirondacks and Thousand Islands Sights

MacKenzie-Intervale Ski Jumping Complex

  • Amusement Park/Water Park

Fodor's Review

The towers of the 70- and 90-meter ski jumps here are stark and exposed and seem out of place, but the view from the top of the taller tower is dramatic. A glass-encased elevator takes you 26 stories to the top, where you get a bird's-eye view of the lay of the land and the High Peaks around Lake Placid. You also get a stomach-gripping view of what the jumpers see while preparing to take flight. During most of the year you may also opt to ride a chairlift up to the elevator.

In summer, freestyle skiers practice twirls and somersaults into the pool at Kodak Sports Park.
