Former U.S. Olympic Nordic Combined Skier Visits Ishpeming Ski Club

USA Nordic Sport Development Director, Jed Hinkley, a 2002 U.S. Olympian in Nordic-combined skiing (both ski jumping and cross-country ski racing), visited the Ishpeming Ski Club (ISC) on Thursday, September 22, 2016.  Skiers from the ISC Youth Ski Jumping Program, and Nordic-combined skiers from the ISC High School Nordic Ski Team worked with Jed in technique sessions on the 13-meter and 25-meter ski hills.

USA Nordic is working with ski jumping clubs nationwide in order to:

      gain a better understanding of the health of  U.S. youth Nordic skiing opportunities;

      determine how USA Nordic can help improve U.S. youth skiing programs; and

      assist with coaches education sessions for youth ski jumping coaches.

January 2016 Update:

The Ishpeming Ski Club has formed a new nordic ski team through Ishpeming Public Schools, serving both middle school and high school age groups.  The team is a mix of students from Ishpeming Public Schools and Negaunee Public Schools.  Twenty-three teens are participating in the program; twenty-two are competing in cross-country skiing; twelve are competing in nordic combined (cross-country skiing and ski jumping) and one is competing in ski jumping only.

With their new race suits, jackets, and hats, the team not only is performing well this first year, but they look like a cohesive team as well.

The Ishpeming Ski Club is offering the following programs at Suicide Hill for the 2016 ski season.
