U.S. and Swiss ski jumpers to kick off event in Lake Placid

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Get ready to jump into the summer season!

Starting on Saturday the United States and Swiss Ski Jumpers are going to soar off the 90 meter ski jump when the summer jumping series opens. 25 men and women will take part in the event.

Jumpers get up to 55 mph soaring through the air, the length of a football field before touching down and landing on a hill that’s basically like a thatched roof.

Tickets for the competition are $16 for adults and $10 for kids.
