Lake Placid, New York: Olympic Ski Jumping Complex


Here's the view from the top of the ski jumping tower in Lake Placid. The picture was taken in September, so there's no snow. It's a year-round tourist attraction, although it's easier to get to this position for a photo in the non-snow months.

One look, and a question should come to your mind: How does anyone do this jump for the first time? I suppose "start on a smaller hill" would be an answer, but this is still an intimidating sight.
