Summer ski jumping takes off in Anchorage

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Ski jumping is a growing sport in Alaska, and this week local skiers will get instruction from U.S. Olympians Abby Ringquist and Jed Hinkley.

Hinkley was in the 2002 winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, and now serves in sport development for USA Nordic, which is hosting the camp.

The clinic is being held at the Karl Eid Ski Jumps next to Hilltop ski area. It includes everything from dry-land training to taking off from actual ski jumps.

The camp goes through July 10. For more information you can go to Anchorage Nordic Skiing website.
