LAKE PLACID -The tradition dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and will continue, Saturday, July 2, when ski jumpers take to the Olympic Jumping Complex for the beginning of the summer jumping season on the 90-meter ski jump.
The July 2 winner will have a leg up on the 2011 Art Devlin Cup chase. This is a season-long series that includes the July 2 event, the Flaming Leaves meet in October and the Masters Ski Jump in December. The day begins at 1 p.m. with the first of two official rounds.
Admission to the event is $15 for adults, $9 for juniors and seniors and includes a chairlift ride and an elevator ride to the top of the 120-meter ski jump. Eats and drinks will be offered by Centerplate, ORDA's concessionaire. For more information about all of the activities this summer at ORDA's venues, log on to www.whitefacelakeplacid.com.
