Snowflake Ski Club


 

Junior Snowflake Ski Club Signup Night

Join us at either Mt. La Crosse on December 4th at 7:00 pm or Westby High School on December 5th at 7:00 pm to see how you can learn to ski jump! The meeting will introduce parents and kids to the world of ski jumping through a video presentation and Q&A session. Choose either meeting based on your preference, each meeting will provide the same information.

Snowflake has one of the largest facilities in entire Midwest for ski jumping. We have hills that are 5, 10, 20, 40, 65 and 118 meters in size. New jumpers will start on the 5 meter, or “bunny hill,” and progress to the next largest jump as their skill level and coach’s discretion permits. The ski club is one of nearly a dozen other clubs in the Central Division that hosts ski jumping training and competitions throughout the winter.

The Junior Snowflake Ski club is looking for 7-11 year olds that are interested in trying ski jumping. Starting at this age allows the jumpers to start at the same time as their peers in other clubs, so there is continuity across the country.

Ski jumping isn’t just for boys. Women’s ski jumping will be in the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The USA Nordic Men’s team has also shown strong results. There has never been a better time for boys and girls to start the quest of learning how to fly.

Ski jumping equipment is very expensive. Potential jumpers looking to try the sport could easily be turned off by the sticker shock. The Junior Snowflake Ski Club continuously raises money to purchase equipment to rent to the jumpers at a very low rate. All of the proceeds from your donation will be used to purchase equipment for the junior jumpers.
