The event, sponsored by Surly Brewing, will feature former and future elite Olympian ski jumpers jumping up to 300 feet for trophies and other cash prizes. Spectators can tour the Bush Lake Ski Jumps grounds and watch the competition from both sides of the ski jump and in non-groomed areas.
Spectators are asked to dress warmly for the event as it will be a completely outdoor event since their Chalet will be closed to the public, but several food trucks will be available to buy food, drinks, and snacks. Additionally, fire pits will be available to sit around to get warm while you "watch the high-flying action!"
Free parking and a shuttle will be available from the Normandale Lake Office Parking Ramp located at 8500 Normandale Lake Blvd, Bloomington, MN 55437, just down the street from the ski jump. No onsite parking will be available for this event.
