Ski Jump IPA
||IPA - American
Pine Mountain Ski Jump is one of the highest artificially created ski jumps in the world. Located in Iron Mountain, Michigan it is part of the Kiwanas Ski Club and an FIS (Federation of International Skiers) competition is held there yearly. The Ski Jumping Continental Cup, is the second level of international ski jumping in the world, ranking right below the World Cup.
Pine Mountain is known throughout the world as one of the best and most challenging ski jumping hills. This is partially due to the fact that the top of the jump is nearly 600 feet above all the surrounding landscape, giving the jumpers the same view that they would have if they were standing on top of a 60 story skyscraper!
Every February, Pine Mountain hosts top-rated foreign ski jumpers from around the world at The Continental Cup Ski Jumping Competition. Currently Pine Mountain holds the U.S. record for the longest ski jump in the world at 459 feet.
