Dear friends and supporters of SWSA,

All of us here at SWSA hope this finds you and your families well as the summer starts to wind down and fall is approaching. Over the past few months SWSA volunteers have continued to do our normal upkeep and maintenance of the facilities and grounds here at Satre Hill. The Jane Lloyd Fund, that provides money for living expenses of cancer patients, was unable to hold their fundraiser here at the jumps last month as they have for the past 10 plus years. With this in mind, SWSA will split the proceeds of their annual golf tournament on September 19 with the Jane Lloyd Fund in order to help them bridge their financial gap. Please visit jumpfest.org for further information.

We hope to see you soon,
Ken Barker,
President, on behalf of the SWSA Board of Directors

2021 Salisbury Ski Jumps

February 12-14, 2021.

Jumpfest will be back again for the 95th year, February 12 - 14 , 2021 at Satre Hill in Salisbury with a roster of exciting talented ski jumpers from Lake Placid, NY. And like everything else this past year, there will be some changes.
Attendance each day will be limited to the first 400 tickets sold. This total reflects 25% of the facility's capacity as required by State of Connecticut regulations. However additional people will be admitted as spectators leave.
Food trucks will be offering various culinary choices throughout the three days of Jumpfest.
Free admission for Friday Night Lights!
Friday night will again feature target jumping under the lights, but unfortunately, because of the pandemic, the Human Dog Sled Race has been canceled. For this reason, for Friday night only, there will be no admission fee.
Saturday
Saturday morning , junior jumpers from both SWSA and Lake Placid will show what they have learned as they compete on the 20 and 30 meter hills. Action begins at 9:00 and medals will be awarded on the hill.
The Development Team, an elite group of jumpers from around the country that has been training in Lake Placid will compete for trophies at the Salisbury Invitational which begins with practice at 11:00 am and competition at 1:00 pm.
The Snow Ball has been canceled for this year.
Sunday
Exciting ski jumping continues Sunday as the same talented jumpers compete at the Eastern U.S. Ski Jumping Championships and vie for a spot on the Junior National team. Again, practice jumping runs from 11:00 am to noon and competition begins at 1:00 pm.
Admittance for Saturday and Sunday events is $15 per person for adults, and children 12 and under are admitted for free.
Alcoholic beverages will not be sold at Jumpfest this year.

About Salisbury

The Town of Salisbury, incorporated in October of 1741, is located in the very Northwest corner of the State of Connecticut. It includes the villages of Salisbury and Lakeville, and the hamlets of Amesville, Lime Rock and Taconic.

The Housatonic River flows from North to South and crosses Town lines along its way. Within Salisbury are several ponds and six lakes: Wononscopomuc, Washinee, Washining, Wononpakook, Riga Lake and South Pond. As well as the lakes, the Salisbury land is comprised of low mountains, including access to the Appalachian Trail, and open fields. Residents take advantage of the beautiful hiking and walking trails. The lakes and beaches are busy with swimmers, boaters and fishermen during all seasons.
