Alpine ski jumping is exploding onto the winter sports scene where pros and ametures float hundreds of feet through the air. Rather than using a free heel, jumpers will use alpine gear and extremely long skis using the “Olympic” V style flight positions. Any alpine skier is welcome to come learn how to fly during the clinics pros put on the Friday before each event. Competitions vary on either a distance and style competition or target jumping with two to six jumps each day. Each competition is a 2 day event attracting national media as well jumpers from all over the U.S. These events will bring in local and national sponsors and have cash purses as high as $8,000. In 2012 the Alpine Ski Jumping tour consisted of four jump competitions, Salisbury CT, (East Coast Championships), Steamboat Springs Colorado, (World Ski Flying Championship), Missoula Montana, (North American Cup), and Cody Wyoming (National Championship)
