COULD YOU SKI JUMP? Isn’t Ski Jumping Awfully Dangerous? The PERCEPTION is that ski jumping is an extremely dangerous sport. The reality is far different ... learn more! ** READ ARTICLE (rev April 2020) How Do People Start Ski Jumping? Nobody just picks up a pair of skis and gives it a try. at least not on big hills. Most new jumpers start young, on small jumps, and move gradually to larger jumps as their skills and confidence continue to grow. RECRUITING VIDEO Here’s a short video from a junior ski jumping event in St Paul MN at their annual Christmas Beginner’s Camp ... LITTLE KID VIDEO The following video was a 20th Century Fox Newsreel feature from 1949. HISTORIC VIDEO When Do People Hang Up Their Jumping Skis? The answer to this one is quite simple ... when they want to! Once a jumper is 30 years of age or older, he or she becomes eligible to participate in Masters competition. Jumpers age 30-39 are class M1, 40-49 M2, 50-59 M3, 60-69 M4, 70-79 M5, etc. There’s now a pre- Masters class for jumpers age 25-29. Tom Ricchio is a corporate jet pilot who jumps in class M5. He’s competed multiple times in the Masters World Championships. ** READ ARTICLE about Tom, and his participation in the 2010 US Masters Championships in Coleraine MN. Don West retired in 2011 as the oldest jumper in the US. A resident of Plattsburgh NY, Don was a retired college professor. He was a class M5 jumper (in his seventies), and often competed in Masters World Championships. Don passed away on Aug 30, 2014, at age 77. CONCLUSION: For those who enjoy ski jumping, it can be a lifetime sport. Some folks continue to compete, others become coaches or volunteers. If you live anywere near one of the clubs listed on our Regional Clubs page, make an effort to see some live ski jumping, and if you’re inclined to give it a try, talk to one of the coaches. Although most jumpers start very young, there are adults who would like to try it, and they’re welcome, if they’re willing to “start small” and work their way up, just like kids do.
