Ski Jumping

Fall Session: August 26 – October 20, 2019

Every kid dreams about flying through the air.  The NSAA Ski Jumping program makes those dreams come true.  Our certified coaches teach skiers how to execute jumps safely while enjoying the thrill and exhilaration of the flight.

The facility has four jumps for all abilities: 10 meter, 20 meter, 40 meter, and the big daddy 65-meter. Recent upgrades to the Karl Eid Jumping Complex now allow Alaska’s ski jumpers to train and compete year-round.

In the summer, NSAA jumps use a combination of water, steel tracks and a special plastic grass surface to simulate slippery snow and allow for year-round ski jumping.

In the winter, our newly installed snow making system helps extend the jumping season.

NSAA offers programs for young skiers ages 5 and up. Check out our programs below!

Want to watch our jumpers fly? During the winter jumps are open Monday-Thursday evening from 5:30-8:00 pm and every other Saturday and Sunday from noon to 3:00 pm. See training calendar for exact dates.

Registration

New ski jumpers of any age must provide their own alpine (downhill) skis, boots and helmet. Once they “graduate” to jumping equipment, a rental fee of $30 must be paid. ALL JUMPERS MUST PROVIDE THEIR OWN HELMETS! Payment plans are available. Contact NSAA Office Staff at 907-276-7609 or admin@anchoragenordicski.com.

Coaches

Ski Jumping coaches are few and far between. That’s why we’re lucky to have two USSA Certified coaches.

Coach Adam Loomis

Adam Loomis was born and raised in Eau Claire, WI and spent most of his childhood with skis on his feet. After graduating high school, Adam made the full move to Steamboat, where he trained for 2 years with the Junior National team.  Just after turning 20, Adam was named to the US Nordic Combined Team. He recently retired from the sport, and while training and competing, Adam graduated with a Business Administration degree in 2017. Since ending his competitive career,  Adam has been staying active in the mountains – whether on skis, foot or a bike.  He’s excited to be a new member of Team AK, where he’ll share his knowledge, experiences and passion with the next generation of Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined athletes.

Coach Chris Lamb

Chris Lamb is a New Hampshire native and former USA Ski Jumping Team member. He attended the National Sports Academy in Lake Placid, New York from 03-07 and competed as a national team member from 07-14. During his career, Chris was named to 3 Junior World Championship teams, achieved podium finishes at National Championships, scored points in continental cups in Europe, and made the podium in several FIS cup competitions, including two victories in Brattleboro, VT. His personal distance record is 191.5 meters. The last three years of Chris’s career were spent living in Trondheim, Norway where he was a member of the Tronderhopp ski club and trained with many of Norway’s top athletes and coaches. Since ending his career in 2014, Chris has completed a bachelors degree in philosophy and environmental studies at Marlboro College in a degree in Sustainability Studies.

Volunteer

The jumping program is looking for volunteers all year long!  Anchorage’s ski jumping community is filled with fun and community-oriented coaches, parents, athletes and volunteers. We’d love for you to get involved!  There are many ways to volunteer: assisting coaches on jumping days, help with jump maintenance during summer months, assist kids with equipment or provide hot chocolate to warm-up skiers on crisp winter days.
