Autumn Ski Jump

Ski jumpers from around the country are heading to Fox River Grove for a chance to capture top honors at the annual Autumn Ski Jumping Competition. This will be a two day event featuring some of the very best ski flyers in the country.

The competition begins at noon on Saturday with the junior skiers on the smaller hills, followed by a competition on the big 70 meter slide.

Then on Sunday, all of the top gun jumpers will compete on the 70 meter giant 150 foot tower, all starting again at noon.

All this excitement takes place Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 21 and 22. Admission is $15 at the gate or just $10 pre-sale at several are merchants. Go to for pre-sale locations. Several food trucks will be on hand serving great selections from gourmet grilled cheese, to slow cooked BBQ, to over roasted pizza.
