The Snowflake Ski Club was founded in 1922. It has its roots deep in volunteerism, community spirit and goodwill, boasting over 500 members. That’s in a town of 2000 people. We are one of the two remaining “all-volunteer” large hill ski jumping clubs in the Western hemisphere.
Located in the City of Westby, a peaceful community with Norwegian roots, the Snowflake Ski Club is proud to provide a place of entertainment and recreation.
Annually, the Ski Tournament is an event the entire community gets excited about. International and US jumpers compete on the large hill, often traveling down the jump with speeds in excess of 50 miles per hour flying for hundreds of feet. Ski jumping truly is the original extreme sport.
Our Club is very active during the summer season as well. The Snowflake Golf Course is used by hundreds of people who want to enjoy the natural beauty and tranquility of Timber Coulee.
International and US jumpers compete on the large hill, often traveling down the jump with speeds in excess of 50 miles per hour.
Many Olympic and world-class ski jumpers have competed at the Snowflake Ski Jumping Complex.
The ski jump complex at Snowflake consists of six jumps all located in the same area of beautiful Timber Coulee. The largest is a 118-meter Olympic-sized hill used for national and international competitions. The Large Hill Meet is held early each year in February and attracts not only U.S. ski jumpers but competitors from around the world. The five smaller hills at the site include a 65-meter hill, as well as smaller 40, 20, 10, and 5-meter hills for training junior jumpers. The junior competition is usually held at Snowflake in early January of each year. The Large Hill and Junior Meets are exciting annual events that draw large crowds of spectators.
Snowflake has hosted numerous FIS Continental Cup and the United States Ski and Snowboard Association ski jumping tournaments. Since 2011, Snowflake has hosted one of the legs of the five-hill U.S. Cup tournament.
In addition to U.S. and international events, Snowflake is also host to an annual junior ski jumping event on the smaller hills adjacent to the large hill. The five smaller hills have K-points of 5, 10, 20, 40, and 65 meters.
