It’s been a challenging year for everyone. COVID protocols have shut our program down all summer and we’re ready to run a compliant youth training program for Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined here in January 2021! Our club has a rich history in helping athletes soar! We’ve had a number of our club jumpers compete in Winter Olympics as well as many former USSki Team athletes, coaches and World Cup Competitors.
Have you ever heard of a ski facility without a ski hill groomer? Our current groomer is roughly 30 years old equipped with the first generation winch technology to enable those big groomer machines to scale our steep slopes. That antiquated technology is no longer in service meaning any part that may wear out or break could leave us high and dry - literally. Leveraging our relationships with local vendors and club volunteers, we have been presented an opportunity to pick up an improved groomer that has today’s technology on the winch which is not only fully serviceable with parts that can be bought off the shelf but also 4 times as strong so we can tax the machine less and get our slopes open sooner!
These new machines retail for over $400,000 - help us leverage this opportunity and get this new groomer. Rest assured with this type of critical specialized equipment we can continue to host phenomenal world-class spectator events every year - as well as continue to train up and coming athletes for their illustrious ski careers!
