The Resurgence of the GNA Jumping Program
Ski jumping is alive and well in central New Hampshire! We kicked off the 2019 GNA youth ski jumping program on October 28th and we have openings for new jumpers. To start all you need is alpine equipment! Our season begins with dry-land training where we work on balance, timing, and technique. Jumpers also have access to our roller jump simulator, which allows us to fine tune jumping technique before we progress to the actual jumps. After the first snow, we’ll moved on to the jumps for the real deal! Beginners will start on the 5-meter jump and will work towards the 10-meter jump with the more experienced jumpers.
If you are interested in our ski jumping program please contact Lisa Kling.
