Ski Jumping

I don't recall seeing a thread on ski jumping, so I thought I would start one.
On a visit to McCormicks many years ago, as you can tell by me vest, wetsuit, skis and hair color, I attempted going over the jump about a dozen times. I actually landed on my feet and rode away from the ramp on one attempt. This one was not it. If I remember right, on this jump I went in head first.

Since I started by showing how not to jump, lets see some more photos. My guess is there are some out there. I bet Tex has some good ones.
