Ski jumping competition was fun to watch. Riding the chairlift and going to the top of the highest jump was wonderful. The views! The fall colors! The mountains!

Really awesome to go to the top of the jump and see where the skiers launch. Neat museum at the top. You will appreciate the skill and nerve the jumpers have once you stand at the top of the Ski jump! (you can't see the landing zone from the top!!)

Taking the lift to the top of the ski jump in the summer was an average fun experience, BUT what my teenage daughter and I enjoyed was the aerial skiers practicing their jumps into a giant swimming pool. It was a free show of all the twists and turns you'd later see them do in the winter Olympics. Didn't think at the time to find out who those skiers were, but they were probably some names you'd recognize from recent winter Olympics.

It is definitely worth the trip up the chairlift and then the elevator to reach the top of the ski jump.
