Ski Hoppers is our ski jumping program that introduces participants to the joy of flight on skis. We will work through a progression of dryland and on snow skills and movements under the tutelage of experienced and skilled coaches. By the end of the program participants will be comfortable and competent jumping on the brand new youth training jumps at Whistler Olympic Park.
To get the most out of this program participants should be competent alpine or cross-country skiers.
This year Whistler Sport Legacies is running introductory ski jumping programs.
The ‘Hoppers’ Ski Jumping clinics are multi-session flight schools that guide participants through all of the skills required to ski jump. These sessions culminate in jumps from the 20 or 40 meter junior hill.
