Norway’s Lindvik Wins Sunday in IM Marius Lindvik (NOR) won this year’s Sunday Continental Cup competition, ahead of Markus Schiffner and Zak Mogel.

FIS Requires Updates Over Next 3 Years IRON MOUNTAIN — The Kiwanis Ski Club, which organizes the annual Giant Pine Mountain Ski Jumping competition, is required by FIS, the International Ski Federation, to make several improvements within 3 years. For the 2018 tournament, the landing area needed to be adjusted from a 37- degree slope to about 30 degrees for safety. “This meant the side boards had to come off, marker steps had to come off and go back on, and fill needed be added to the landing area from about 90 meters down,” club member Lennie Walters said. Stage two is more significant. The start gates must be widened, a stair tower built and a warming shelter completed alongside the scaffold. Finally, an elevator must be installed, Bujold said. Club members have worked with Integrated Designs Inc. of Marquette on architecture, engineering and consulting and already have invested $20,000 in engineering to meet FIS specifications. Club Receives $24K Gift For Projects The organization “100 Women Who Care in Dickinson County has announced a gift of approximately $24,000 to the Kiwanis Ski Club to help with the costs of FIS-mandated improvements to the facility.
