U10 Nordic Combined & Jumping (Ages 7-9)
This is a beginner Jumping and Nordic Combined program in which participants can utilize Nordic jumping and cross country equipment for a well-rounded Nordic skiing experience. Athletes can explore the fundamentals of both disciplines and gain confidence and skill in a fun environment. Jumping takes place on the bump jumps, HS20 and the HS30 meter jumping hills. Optional competitions are available through the Hitchens Brothers’ Wednesday Night Jump Series, Steamboat Cup Series, and through local and U.S. Ski & Snowboard jumping, cross country and Nordic combined competitions.
● Minimum requirement: Successful completion of Little Vikings or beginner to intermediate skiing skills
● Fees include Nordic jumping equipment, but participants must have their own cross country skate skiing equipment and a ski pass to Howelsen Hill. First year U10 athletes are encouraged to start on alpine equipment which is not provided and then progress into the Nordic jumping equipment.
