Ski Jumping

This afternoon Pat and I went over to the St. Paul Ski Club so I could photograph ski jumping. The club was hosting the John R Lyons Tournament, and there were a lot of competitors, since people came to the Twin Cities for the weekend (Minneapolis had a competition yesterday and St. Paul today). This was Pat’s first opportunity to see ski jumping, and she found it interesting but the conditions were challenging; today was a trifle nippy, with temperatures barely creeping out of the single digits. We got there as they were in the latter stages of competition on the 30 meter hill, their second largest. I then photographed the jumping on their big hill, the 46 meter hill. I was rather pleased with the shots I got, which are on the web here.
