Snowbowl, home to the world’s only natural terrain jump still used in competition, hosted it’s annual Snowbowl Cup Gelande Championship over the weekend. Gelande is a unique style of ski jumping in which jumpers use a standard alpine set up, as opposed to the free heel bindings used in the Olympics. Spectators of all ages convened at the resort to hang out in lawn chairs, eat, drink and watch, as competitors flung themselves over a massive precipice outside of Snowbowl’s main lodge. Twelve pro competitors went head to ski tip, with Erik Wilson bringing in the gold medal jump of 204 ft. Conner Buckley, one of six amateur competitors walked away with the gold in his division after an impressive 167 ft. leap.
