Beginner Ski Jumping Program


Please come dressed in snow gear if you have any, including snow overalls or snow pants and coat, good gloves, warm socks, water bottle. Wear “exercise clothes” under your snow gear.


Equipment is provided and we will make every effort to accommodate everyone.  So please come out, we will try to get you outfitted in our loaner gear.   Skis, boots, SOME helmets and goggles are available. If you have your own helmet and goggles, please bring them.


Our experienced and Olympic trained coaches will work with you.  In most cases you will begin on our smallest hill, the 5 meter.


Please park in the lot outside our main entrance.

PARENTS – Important

We request that younger jumpers have a parent stay with them to assist and cheer their child on during practice; older jumpers can be dropped off after the proper paperwork is complete and an emergency contact number is provided.

An adult needs to sign a waiver and registration before jumping the first time.

Norge Family Packet

Our beginner trial rate is $50 a month but you can try the first night at no cost.

Weather Conditions and Season Length

We will try to practice until it becomes too warm.  During adverse weather conditions we do fitness training in our locker room.  We hope to jump through February and possibly early March.  We take off April then begin jumping on plastic (there is plastic on all 5 of our hills) by mid-May through Thanksgiving.
