Ski jumping and nordic combined have been in the Olympic Winter Games since the first competition in Chamonix, France. U.S. Ski & Snowboard is committed to furthering nordic skiing in the United States by providing athletic programs, services, and competitions across the country.
Ski jumping and nordic combined both hold a variety of events, generally classified as large or normal hill based on the size of the jumping hill.
Athletes get started in nordic by learning to ski and jump at a local resort. U.S. Ski & Snowboard Clubs are the primary starting point for aspiring athletes, providing an introduction point with knowledgeable coaches and officials to guide them along the development pipeline. Numerous opportunities for developing as an athlete exist through the Ski Jumping/Nordic Combined Training System.
The U.S. Ski & Snowboard provides education and support to its local clubs including a certification process for coaches, judges and officials and the club itself to ensure the best experience possible for athletes and parents.
