Take advantage of long days and consistent conditions by signing up for summer ski jumping or nordic combined! This is a great opportunity to get lots of jumping in and improve technique. See schedule below for weekly jumping schedule according to age.
Our special jumping programs are geared towards athletes that want to specialize in ski jumping. Athletes will work on and off the ski jumping hill to develop all the skills to be the best possible ski jumper they can be. Athletes that are enrolled in special jumping, but do their nordic training through other programs can still enter in our nordic combined competitions.
