Behind the scenes with the women's ski jumping national team

Behind the scenes with the women’s ski jumping national teamSki Racing, in anticipation of a major Web site overhaul due to be completed this fall, presents the first original video production the magazine and Web site has ever undertaken.

Ski Racing has teamed with Salt Lake City-based Rival Films to offer readers a glimpse at the energetic and ambitious U.S. national women’s ski jumping team. Recent FIS approval for inclusion in the 2009 World Championships is the spark needed for women’s ski jumping to gain entry into the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games.

Click on the links below to see how Rival Films’ Matt Fults and Ski Racing document these five young jumpers during a Ski Racing magazine photo shoot with Jonathan Selkowitz. The athletes – Lindsey Van, Jessica Jerome, Abby Hughes, Alissa Johnson and Brenna Ellis – are among the best in the world, and they got the chance to prove that Friday and Saturday as the Utah Olympic Park hosted the VISA Women’s Ski Jumping Festival.

With background music in the video provided by Radiocraft, this short segment offers skiracing.com readers a preview of much more exciting content to come.
