Park City will play host to one of the largest ski jumping and nordic combined events in the country next week. Starting this weekend, up to 150 athletes will begin arriving in Utah, many with families along for support, in order to take part in the 19th Annual North American Jindro Mayer Springer Tournee.
Since its inception nearly two decades ago, the competition has grown to become the largest domestic summer event held in North America. Over the course of three days, nearly 200 athletes of all abilities will compete on the Nordic jumps at Utah Olympic Park.
Competitions will take place on every hill from the HS10 up, and will culminate with the Large Hill National Championships on the HS134 on Saturday morning. The action starts on Thursday, July 27, with competitions on the HS68 and smaller hills. On Friday, skiers will up the stakes competing on the HS100, or, Normal Hill. On Saturday, a new national champion will be crowned.
Spectators are encouraged to head up to Utah Olympic Park and watch men and women from around the country compete for the title of Large Hill National Champion on the same hill that hosted the 2002 Olympics.
Additionally, there will be a fundraiser held midweek in order to benefit Ski Jumping and Nordic
Combined Olympic hopefuls as they begin their push toward the upcoming Games. Women's
Ski Jumping USA and USA Nordic are co-hosting a gala event on Wednesday evening that will bring nordic enthusiasts and fans together with America's top Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined athletes.
