In 1994, the landing hills were re-graded to bring the jumps into compliance with current rules, and increasing their height to 90 and 120 meters. The platform at the top was for TV cameras. The green thing on that platform is a camera with a green cover on it. These jumping shots were during a practice day several days before the actual competiton. I took others during the event but they didn't show the jumps themselves, just the jumpers in the air.
very nice picture ...!! LIKE
Merci, Mayaamon, pour votre commentaire gentil. La ville près de cette montagne est appelée Buena Vista, qui signifie "La Belle Vue" dans espagnol. Et, il est véritablement une vue de beauté dans n'importe quelle langue! Best Wishes! Amities. Ryandenver
I just got back from a week-end trip to the Arkansas Valley and took a photo of the Sawatch Range which I thought you would appreciate seeing. Your photo is from the North looking South. My photo is from the South looking North. The mountains actually curve so you won't see Princeton in my shot, just as you didn't see Shavano in yours except for its peak looking over Jones Peak. Enjoy. Ryandenver Here is the link.
The house is a Venetian-Gothic brick structure that was built in 1879.
Folks along the southside of the canal have a birds eye view of the passing boat traffic.

Gracias por sus amables palabras.
In the 60's, for a few dollars the public could ride as a passenger on a 1930's vintage bobsled operated by the NYS Conservation Department.
Building the fromer run was a true art-form where the curves were piles of stone that were coated with ice and sculpted to exacting measurements. The walls of the straight sections were blocks of ice cut from Mirror Lake.
It's since been relplaced by a new, pre-formed and refigerated run that accomodates both luge and bobsledding.
