January 2017 Update:

The Ishpeming Ski Club has formed a nordic ski team last year through Ishpeming and Negaunee 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.  Thirty-four teens are participating in the program; all are competing in cross-country skiing, some are competing in nordic combined (cross-country skiing and ski jumping).  This is a 50% increase from last year!

With their new race suits, jackets, and hats, the team is not only improving their performance this second year, but they look like a cohesive team as well.  It has been great to compete against the Marquette School team in a five race schedule held on the area cross country courses in Marquette County.  The racers also have been attending other races around the central division which includes Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota.  Good luck to our area skiers!

The Ishpeming Ski Club is offering the following ski jumping and cross-country skiing programs at Suicide Hill for the 2016-17 ski season.
