Certainly one of the most exciting elements the show, jumping is consistently a crowd favorite. Performed on a surface that’s 14 ft. wide, 24 ft. long, and 5 ½ ft. high, the jump team amazes the audience as they fly through the air.
Hitting the ramp at speeds from 30 to over 60 mph, these daring athletes perform aerial feats like 360 degree (or helicopter) spins, distance jumps, front flips, and back gainers. Usually skiing in groups of from four to seven or more during a given routine, “jump teams” often add to the excitement by having skiers cutting and weaving under the acrobatics taking place overhead. Talk about teamwork!
Ski jumping adds an element of danger and thrills to the overall ski show experience.
