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.
Thank you for your support!
