We always say you have to see ski jumping “in person” ... neither photos or video, nor
TV coverage, can show you what this exciting sport really looks like. But we’re going
to give you some videos that will give you an idea of what you can expect to see at

Gotta see it in person!
These videos & photos are terrific, but you really have to see it for yourself. The Pine Mountain Continental Cup is
the ONLY international ski jumping competition series that appears in the US every year, it happens right here!
The Continental Cup is second only to World Cup in terms of prestige, talent, and prize money. Ski jumping is a hugely
popular sport in the rest of the snow-sports world, drawing huge crowds for events, heavy prime-time TV coverage, and
its popularity ranks with Formula One racing and professional soccer throughout Europe, Scandinavia, and Japan.
It’s slowly gaining greater visibility in the USA ... and FIS, the body which governs snow sports worldwide, would like to
see it expand in North America. We’d like to invite YOU to experience the thrill of seeing athletes fly the length of a
football field and a half, and hear the “whoosh” as they glide by ... just a few feet away from you!
