The PERCEPTION is that ski jumping is an extremely dangerious. sport.  The reality is far different ... learn more! ** READ ARTICLE How Do People Start Ski Jumping? Nobody just picks up a pair of skis and gives it a try.  Not on big hills, anyway.  Most jumpers start young, on very small jumps, and learn incrementally, moving gradually to larger jumps as their skills and confidence continue to develop. ** RECRUITING VIDEO Here’s a short video from a junior 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 in about 1950. ** 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 M4. Tom has competed multiple times in the Masters World Championships. ** READ ARTICLE  about Tom, and his participation in  the 2010 US Masters Nat’l 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 competed multiple times in Masters World Championships.  Don passed away on Aug 30, 2014, at age 77  ... click to read obituary CONCLUSION: For those who enjoy ski jumping, it can be a lifetime sport.  Some like to continue competing, 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 on up, just like kids do.
