Annual Snowflake Ski Tournament in Westby (01/23/2013)
Are you interested in EXTREME SPORTS? If so, we have something for YOU – and it’s not far away!

During the first weekend in February there will be SKI JUMPING in Southwestern Wisconsin and VETERANS will be admitted FREE for the sixth straight year! Now that winter has finally arrived, be sure you don’t miss this fun event!

The 90th Annual Snowflake Ski Tournament will be held on February 1 and 2 at the Snowflake Ski Club near Westby, 25 miles southeast of LaCrosse.  There will be over twenty jumpers from across the US, and up to a dozen in a field of foreign jumpers. All jumps will be on a “118 meter hill,” which meets the same engineering specifications that are used in Olympic competition.

The competition on Friday will begin at 7 PM Friday evening. Jumping at night with lighting provides an exciting and unique atmosphere!  Saturday’s competition will begin at noon.  Results of both competitions will be used to determine winners.    

There will be lots of other activities going on, including a large fireworks display on Friday night followed by live music and dance lasting until after midnight. On Saturday, there will be live music and dance after the competition lasting until 7 PM. A small cover charge applies to both dances. There will be opportunities for children to sled on smaller hills and dig in a large snow pile for over $100 in quarters.  On Saturday, there will also be free horse drawn sleigh rides and helicopter rides for a reasonable fee.

If you are serving on active duty, are an active member of the National Guard or Reserves, or are a retiree of any of these components, you and your spouse and children will be admitted free.  Just present an ID card at the gate.  Normal admission is $20 per person for the weekend.

This is a great winter festival for the entire family - check out the club’s web site for pictures, a map, admission fees and an exciting YouTube video:  www.snowflakeskiclub.com.
