Bring your lawn chair, some snacks and plan to watch the jumpers fly!

The goal is to raise $10,000 for the jumping club to help cover expenses for a new Winch Cat to safely groom the jump facilities – and we need your help!
The current method for grooming our steep landing hills requires human exposure. The current methodology and equipment is from the 1980’s and utilizes nylon rope, snow grooming roller, and a mechanized devise that pulls the roller while a human rides backwards; all of this accomplished in inclement weather. The winch we are purchasing uses a machine that is specifically designed to safely operate on steep slopes. The new equipment will provide continuous and consistent snow grooming thus providing safer conditions for our jumpers as they fly through the air and land at speeds up to 50 mph.
