the big ski jump

Yesterday, I wrote about ski jumping and posted a video and some photos of two of the ski jumps in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. In this post, I would like to share some photos of the highest ski jump, which is also located on Howelson Hill.

A couple of summers ago, I hiked up to the top of this ski jump. Pretty steep drop!

Here’s the jump looking up from below:

This is what the ski jump looks like in the winter when it’s covered in snow:

Here’s a view of all three ski jumps covered in snow:

And here’s a view of all three ski jumps in the summertime.

  1. Hi Girasoli, wow, cool 1st shot. I can’t imagine skiing down that. I’ve been enjoying the olympics. Thanks for sharing your photos. I like the comparison between winter and summer shots.
