Learn to Ski Jump
Open to all athletes who are interested in learning ski jumping!
Two available sessions:
Sunday October 14th from 10:00 am–12:00 pm and Sunday October 28th from 10:00 am–12:00 pm
Each session will cover an introduction to ski jumping, including: equipment, training and conditioning, along with some roller-jump simulator use. Later in the session we will move down to the ski jump venue and tour the jumps (which is where we practice when the snow flies). Make sure you wear comfortable clothing and bring sneakers or running shoes.
We will meet at the GNA clubhouse. Parking is available at the Gunstock cross-country center on the right side of the road (the clubhouse is located across the street).
If you plan on attending either or both sessions, PLEASE contact Lisa Kling.

The Resurgence of the GNA Jumping Program
Ski jumping is alive and well in central New Hampshire! We kicked off the 2017 GNA youth ski jumping program last December with 2 new jumpers, Phoenix and Laslo Beaulieu, age 7 to 9. Both had never jumped before and they excelled very fast. The season started with dry-land training where we worked on balance, timing, and technique. Jumpers also trained on our new roller jump simulator, where we worked on fine-tuning technique before heading to the actual jumps. After the first snow, we moved on to the jumps for the real deal! The beginners started on the 5-meter jump, which we called the pimple, while the more experience jumpers quickly moved on to the 10-meter jump.
Donate to GNA in honor of Lisa Young
In 2014 we lost our friend and president, Lisa Young, to a long battle with breast cancer. We’ll continue to remember her dedication to the club and her love for the sport. In Lisa’s memory, a fund has been set up to benefit Gunstock Nordic Association.
