Harris Hill Ski Jump in Brattleboro to be held Feb. 14 – 15

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. — The Harris Hill Ski Jump, the only Olympic-sized, 90-meter ski jumping hill in New England, will play host to its annual two-day ski jumping event Feb. 14 and 15, 2015. In addition to its traditional jumps, this year’s event will include a Men’s and Women’s International Skiing Federation (FIS) Cup. This will be the first-ever women’s FIS event in the U.S. The weekend’s events will also serve as a stop on the United States American Ski Jumping (USASJ) series.

Founded in 1922, the annual jumping competition held on Harris Hill attracts several thousand spectators each year not only to watch local jumpers reach great heights, but also to view world renowned jumpers soar in the sport of ski jumping.

The three major competitions, merged with the annual Pepsi Challenge and Fred Harris Memorial Tournament, will draw the best male and female ski jumpers from across the globe to Brattleboro.

Competition each day will start at 11 a.m. and will conclude by 4 p.m.

Regular ticket pricing is $20 adults, $15 youth (age 6-12 years). Age five and younger are always free.  For details on the event see www.HarrisHillSkiJump.com.
