The first known ski jumper was Norwegian Olaf Rye, which jumped 9.5 meters back in 1809 before a group of other soldiers. Then by the year of 1862, ski jumpers were doing much larger jumps, and competing in Official Ski Jumping Contests. Ski jumping has been a part of the Olympic Winter Games since the very first games that took place in Chamonix, France which was originally called Semaine Intemationale des Sports d'Hiver, the competitions were held at the foot of Mont Blanc, between the 25th of January and the 5th of February 1924, it was organized by the French Olympic Committee, and retrospect designated by the International Olympic Committee as the 1 Olympic Winter Games.

This years event will also be the only stop in the United States of the nine event International Skiing Federation competition schedule, plus will also serve as the United States American Ski Jumping Tournament Finals.
The Harris Hill Ski Jump was founded back in 1922, and sure does attract several thousand folks each year not only to watch local jumpers reach great heights but to also view world renowned jumpers soar in the air of the sport of Ski Jumping. Back in the year of 2009 the jump was completely rebuilt in accordance with the FIS specifications. The two major competitions, merged with the annual Pepsi Challenge and the Fred Harris Memorial Tournament, which draws the best male and female ski jumpers from all across the globe to Brattleboro, Vermont, including those which are fighting to earn a spot on their respective 2014 Winter Olympic Teams.

Brattleboro Harris Hill 2012 Ski Jump Competition taking place in Brattleboro Vermont, a bit of terminology, Starting at the top of the jump, the skier puts on their skis and gets into the start. In the early days, there was just one start, a platform at the top. Later on, several platforms started being used at different heights as a way to regulate takeoff speed. Current practice is to use bar starts with platforms on the side where the skiers put on their skis. The bar start has a wooden beam or metal pipe spanning the track and supported on both sides of the track. The skier sits down on the bar and slides sideways until he is at the center of the track. The skier gathers speed as they zips down the inrun to the takeoff. The track is one half to one inch deep in hard snow. The inrun, which is that part of the jump from the starting point to the jump, has a pitch at the start of about 28 - 36 degrees and gradually gets less the closer you get to the jump. The last 20 or 30 feet is actually hanging about 10 degrees from level. It does not go up at the end. The Takeoff is the very end of the jump where the jumper leaves the ground and soars into the air. The Knoll is that part of the jump from the end of the takeoff to the steep part of the landing hill. The Transition is where the landing hill starts to flatten out and the Outrun is from the end of the transition to the where the skier stops.
Takeoffs actually angle downward at 7 – 12 degrees. And the track is not curved all the way to the end of the takeoff. The last section is straight. The rules for ski jump design prescribe that the length of the straight part of the takeoff (the table) be chosen so that the skier traverses it in one quarter of a second.
