JUMP RENOVATION UNDERWAY Upgrades will bring it to current FIS specifications Work began in late spring 2020 to remove old wooden decking from the jump structure. It will be replaced with a wider, all-steel deck, a ceramic inrun-track will be installed, and a warm-up room will be constructed near the start gates. These are among the changes that will assure the facility will continue to meet the criteria required by the International Ski Federation FIS.

Eating & Heating in 2019 One of our GOLD sponsors, St George Glass, had this great setup for keeping food and friends warm near the bottom of the hill.
Blast From the Past: Online Photo Album Carl Darovich, native of Iron Mountain, was an avid collector of ski jumping photos, autographs, publications, artifacts, and memorabilia. He lived in Sheboygan WI, and passed away several years ago. The American Ski Jumping Museum and Hall of Fame in Red Wing MN has acquired a large portion of Carl’s collection. Here are two examples of his lifetime passion: Photo album (one of 80+) Includes many autographs and notes, much of it related to Pine Mt and the athletes who jumped here; most not yet captioned, but autographs and notes help to identify. Log of US records and long jumps (‘30s, ‘40s, ‘50s) Includes many names & photos familiar to long-time Pine Mt fans.

Learning to ski jump in 1947. The love of this sport starts young, and it lasts a lifetime!
For some of our older members, this video will bring back great memories of how they learned this sport back in the late i940s. In fact, this newsreel was shot in Iron Mountain, and features several of our local jumpers. One of them, Willie Erickson, was on two Olympic teams and also competed at the FIS World Championships. It was Willie who identified the year for us! For many who’ve experienced the thrill of flight, whether at an elite competitive level, or just as a recreational amateur, there’s something that draws them back to the sport ... some as coaches, some as officials, some as hill crew volunteers, and some just as spectators. The dedicated crew at Kiwanis Ski Club has been putting on international competitions for many years, and “nobody does it better!”
About Kiwanis Ski Club
Our club has been presenting world-class ski jumping tournaments at Pine Mountain since the first one in 1939. Many North American distance records have been set here,by some of the best ski jumpers from the USA and many other countries. The Kiwanis Ski Club has proudly sent local jumpers to represent the USA in the Olympics and in the FIS World Championships, and many of them have been US National Champions in various classes, too. Our club has been the host for Continental Cup tournaments since 1990, and we’ve been honored to hold World Cup competitions in 1996 and 2000. It’s long been the only ski jumping venue in the United States which is awarded a competition date by FIS each year. It’s a huge commitment of manpower and finances ... all of which have to be expended prior to the first jumper coming down the slide. FIS has many requirements which must be met by the host club of a tournament in this upper-echelon series. We do what’s necessary to meet their requirements every season. Mother Nature’s cooperation is needed to successfully hold an event, but a few times she hasn’t been very helpful. The club sells entry buttons in advance at a discount, and the proceeds from those early sales, along with sponsor investments, helps set the stage for the arrival of outstanding ski jumpers from around the world. Occasionally, weather has forced postponement or cancellation of our tournaments, and as disappointed as our guests may be, we must ensure that the regulations of the sport’s governing body, FIS, are scrupulously followed to ensure the safety of the athletes. FIS officials are on site for every event, and they’ve always been complimentary regarding our club, our meticulous hill preparation and our guests. We’re pleased to provide “major league” ski jumping for our fans!

Hill Size & Scoring Explained Pine Mountain is equivalent in size to the larger of two jumps at an Olympic venue. It’s K-point, which the baseline for scoring, and the distance a good jumper should be expected to go, is 120 meters from the point of takeoff. That’s 394 feet. For an explation of hill size and scoring, CLICK HERE Pine Mountain’s current official distance record is 143.5 meters, 471 feet. Unofficially (not in scored competition), the longest flight is 148M (486 ft). The “hill size” (longest distance considered safe) is 133 meters. if jumpers exceed this distance during a competition round, the jury can require the start gate to be lowered, thus slowing takeoff speed. This is for the SAFETY of the remaining jumpers in that day’s competition.

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!
