Ski jumping is a very old sport, which has its origin already in the 18th century. Back then farmers in the Norwegian province of Telemark used small hills on alpine slopes for short jumps. With time, the interest and the enthusiasm for this new discipline rose and ski jumping became a sport of its own. Today ski jumping is one of the most popular disciplines in winter sports. Especially in Europe lots of fans come to the hills to watch the competitions and high ratings are reached with live TV coverage. At the moment this fascinating sport is practiced in about 20 countries on the World-Cup level.

Basics Of Jumping On Skis



In this tutorial, we're going to be focusing on the basics of jumping to give the foundation park skills you need to progress to the next level.

Get The Feeling Of Jumping
Before going to an actual jump, stand in your ski boots and jump straight up and down. You want to feel your shins against your boots and pop up off your toes.

Small Jump
Now find yourself a small jump that you feel comfortable with. Something with little to no gap to the landing will be perfect. Speed check the jump first. This is when you ski up to it and stop right at the takeoff to get an idea of the speed required. Also, make sure no one is behind you when you do this cause you can definitely wreak some havoc in the park with this little maneuver.

Keeping your hands in front of you is crucial for all forward landing tricks but timing is an equally important aspect of jumping. Ideally you want to be fully extended right at the lip of the jump.

Stepping It Up
Once you feel comfortable with the smaller jump, try stepping it up a notch. Find a jump that has a little bit of a distance between the takeoff and the landing. Do another speed check and watch others hit the jump first to get an idea of how much speed you need. It's important to have enough speed to clear the knuckle, especially bigger jumps.

Once you feel comfortable with bigger jumps start adding grabs, shifties and carving into the jump. This will make you a better skier and definitely add style to your skiing.

Japan's Ski Jump Take The Home Advantage - Nagano 1998 Winter Olympics

Takanobu Okabe, Hiroya Saito, Masahiko Harada and Kazuyoshi Funaki all put on incredible displays for Japan in the ski jumping event at the Nagano 1998 Olympic Winter Games.

Subscribe to the Olympic channel:

The Sapporo 1972 Games put high expectations on the Japanese team to perform once again at a home Winter Games.

The individual events had given the hosts medals one medal in each of the three colours out of six possible medals (with Kazuyoshi Funaki taking the large hill gold), but hadn't yet offered the public with the same spectacular display as the Japanese clean sweep in Sapporo.

Still, there was one event left which was not feature on the Olympic programme until the 1988 Winter Games: the team large hill competition.

Four years earlier, Japan had won the ski jumping team silver medal in Lillehammer after having an early lead, leaving the public anxious for a better result. Once again the pressure was on Masahiko Harada who was considered responsible for the unfulfilling result in 1994.

This time there were no doubts that Harada - alongside Takanobu Okabe, Hiroya Saito and Kazuyoshi Funaki - had delivered as Japan took the gold medal to the delight of the 40,000 fans present at the venue.

Skier Spins off 24-story Ski Jump…Backwards

The Sammy C Project Available on Itunes:

Teton Gravity Research and 8-time X Games medalist and 3-time Real Ski Champion, Sammy Carlson, introduce The Sammy C Project. The Sammy C Project hopes to inspire those even beyond the realm of snow to go after their dreams with tenacity.

Sammy Carlson, places himself in the record books as the first skier to hit a “ski-flying” long jump with freestyle intent. Carlson not only spun himself from the lip of a jump designed to send skiers upwards of 500 feet, but began several of many descents into the jump switch.

Built in 1970, the ski jump, known as Copper Peak, is the largest ski jump in the Western Hemisphere. Located on Michigan’s upper peninsula and along the shores of Lake Superior, the 24 story, 300-ton steel structure is named for the mineral deposits unearthed during its construction (a 140-pound copper nugget was discovered near the present-day judge’s stand). The ramp itself claims 364-feet of vertical drop and a 35-degree in-run, providing for jumps with distance records stretching over 500 feet.

“When we showed up it was a ghost ramp. It not been hit in twenty years,” declares Carlson. “The people helping me from the community where just as committed as I was to hitting the ramp. It was true team effort.”

The film shares nearly two years of unthinkable freestyle skiing progression, with features, locations and cinematography to rival the groundbreaking segment released today. “The jump is truly enormous,” says TGR co-founder Steve Jones. “Hitting a gap this big in general takes significant confidence and skill, not to mention spinning from its lip or dropping in switch. Sammy is unbeatable when it comes to skiing like this.”

SQUAW VALLEY 1960 (SKI Jumping)

VIII OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES FINAL REPORT page 103f



The Olympic Jumping Hill at Squaw Valley was designed
by Heini Klopfer of Oberstdorf, Germany, who is
the foremost authority in the world on design. Klopfer
designed the hill in the spring of 1957.
The contract was awarded by the California Olympic
Commission to Diversified Builders that Fall, and clearing
of trees began immediately. The actual building began
in the summer of 1958, and was completed in the Fall.
After it was completed, Klopfer returned for an inspection
trip.
Klopfer had the highest praise for the construction of
the Jumping Hill, which was located in the heart of the
entire Olympic competition area, directly opposite the
Blyth Memorial Arena on Little Papoose Peak. It is
the only jumping facility in Olympic history to have
three jumps—the 40, 60, and 80-meter jumps—all on the
same hill. Klopfer called Little Papoose Peak the type of area one always seeks but seldom finds. Tall trees
on both sides of the hills gave the jumpers good protection
from the wind. The sun also was at the backs
of the jumpers during the competitions.
The facility was built so that the start and the judges'
tower could be reached either by walking up a stairway
on the right hand side, or by riding to the first unloading
station on the Little Papoose Peak double chair lift and
walking down from there.
The Jumping Hill was first used for competition at
the Trial Events in February, 1959. International Ski
Federation officials on hand for the event found the
facility to be excellent, and suggested only a few minor
changes for the actual Games. Those few details were
corrected in the spring of 1959, and final manicuring of
the Jumping Hill was done just prior to the opening of
the Games.

The 80-meter special jumping, which provided the
last day crowd with some of the Games' most exciting
moments, resulted in an easy victory for Germany's
Helmut Recknagel.
Each of the 45 competitors in the event had two jumps,
and Recknagel had the greatest distance in the entire
field on both attempts. Additionally, he had the best
jumping style of all the performers, according to most
of the five judges. His total points of 227.2 far exceeded
the second place finisher, Finland's Niilo Halonen, who
totaled 222.6 points. Third place went to Otto Leodolter
of Austria, with 219.4 points.
American audiences, particularly those from California,
had seen little or no jumping competition prior to Games. Seeing the best performers in the world in their
first look at the sport was truly a thrill for an extremely
appreciative and responsive crowd.
The Nordic Combined event, which is a combination
of 15-kilometer cross-country racing and 60-meter jumping,
was won by Georg Thoma of Germany. He won
the event mainly on his jumping ability, as he gathered
221.5 points, more than any of his rivals, in that phase of
the competition. He also was the third best racer in the
competition.
The second place silver medal was won by Norway's
Tormod Knutsen. Nikolai Gusakov of the U.S.S.R. won
the bronze medal emblematic of third place.
Helmut Recknagel of Germany, an easy winner in the 80-meter jump, shows the magnificent form that won a gold medal

Ski jump practice without snow

At the Ski Stadium from the 1936 Winter Olympics, near Munich in the German Alps. A fire truck to the right of the landing area would occassionally spray water on the turf. I don't know what the surface at the top of the jump (where the jumpers pick up speed) is made of--plastic?
