Our 10th Annual Story Project is happening now!
Every once in a while we all get a little star-struck by the folks who inspired us, especially when we get a chance to sit at the top of a ski jump and swap some stories about the thrill of flying!

About Story Project
Since 2012, the USA Nordic Story Project has presented 31 pieces of skiing history each year throughout the month of December.
How does Story Project work?
Story Project is a chance to remember, share, and celebrate the people and moments that make Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined great. Stories are from young and old, from across the country, and from yesterday to long ago. We love stories from weekend warriors, parents, and officials just as much as stories from Olympians. These are stories that bring us together and bring us back. Our hope is that you read the stories, it brings a smile to your face, and if you are able or willing, you give back to the sport either through a donation or your time. When we all do this, we ensure the future is even brighter than the past.
