Ski Jumping

Since 1922 Brattleboro, VT, has been hosting a 90-meter ski jumping competition for U.S. and international jumpers at Harris Hill. It has been the site of 18 national championships over the course of its history. In 2008 it was re-built to International Ski Federation specifications. On February 16 & 17, 2013, Chris Lamb from the United States and Yuya Yamada from Japan were two of the top contenders competing for the coveted Harris Hill trophy. See the results here.
