Some ski jumping athletes were in Steamboat Springs, Colorado competing in the Winter Start and US Cup Opener. The Winter Start event is hosted annually by the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club and is the first on-snow event nationally in the 2021/22 season in ski jumping and nordic combined. Some top finishes were Kai M. who placed 2nd for U16 Women and Jack K. who placed 5th for U16 Men in the HS75 competition on December 11. Both Kai and Jack will be attending NYSEF Winter Term Program which allows aspiring junior athletes the opportunity to access top-tier training and coaching opportunities, while continuing remotely in their school’s curricula through one-on-one tutoring support.
